14:52 EDTNLNKZika virus acquired through sexual transmission reported in Dallas
Dallas County Health and Human Services announced it has received confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the first Zika virus case acquired through sexual transmission in Dallas County in 2016. The patient was infected with the virus after having sexual contact with an ill individual who returned from a country where Zika virus is present, DCHHS reported. Publicly traded companies working on combating Zika include Inovio (INO), Cerus (CERS), NewLink (NLNK) and Intrexon (XON).
12:56 EDTNLNKMizuho downplays near-term Zika revenue potential for NewLink, Intrexon
The Zika virus and its link to microcephaly and fetal brain damage have exploded into public view and lead to several drugmakers announcing plans to fight the disease, but Mizuho analyst Eric Criscuolo downplayed the potential for Zika to truly move the needle for companies in the space in the near-term. PERIPHERAL OPPORTUNITIES: NewLink (NLNK) announced plans to develop treatment options for the Zika virus as the disease was declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization this week. While the company "could" secure funding and partnerships for the project, Criscuolo does not view NewLink's Zika plans as core to its investment story, encouraging investors to instead evaluate the company on the basis of its HyperAcute and IDO programs. Meanwhile, Intrexon's (XON) efforts in mosquito population control have also gained attention amid the rise of Zika, whose primary transmission vector is the mosquito. Though even a small slice of global mosquito spending would represent "significant" revenue for Intrexon, Criscuolo cautions that the company's program is still in early stages, with attempts at a wider rollout likely encountering political, biological, financial and public opinion hurdles. Separately, the analyst said he wouldn't be surprised to see OraSure (OSUR) also attempt to develop a Zika test given the company's response to Ebola last year, though as with NewLink, Criscuolo believes any such effort would be peripheral to OraSure's primary businesses. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies involved in combating Zika include Inovio (INO) and Cerus (CERS). PRICE ACTION: Shares of NewLink are up roughly 5% to $25.63. Meanwhile, Intrexon has slipped 5.5% on Tuesday afternoon but is still up 15% over the last five trading days. Among others with links to Zika, OraSure is up fractionally, Inovio has fallen 7% and Cerus has dipped 1.4% this afternoon.

07:17 EDTCOPIran still struggling to finalize oil drilling contract terms, WSJ says
Iran is still having difficulty finalizing terms under which foreign energy companies can drill for oil there, the Wall Street Journal reports. Iranian oil officials canceled a conference scheduled for this month in London where new contracts for Western companies were supposed to be presented, with official blaming the cancellations on the inability to secure enough U.K. visas for the event, the report says. Another reason for the cancellation are conservative factions thinking that the contracts drawn up by president Hassan Rouhani's oil ministry are too generous to foreign entities, the report says, citing people familiar with the matter. Publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
