05:47 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces results from five datasets from Alzheimer's disease study
Eli Lilly announced results from an analyses of five datasets evaluating the relationship between cognitive and functional impairment in patients with mild Alzheimer's disease in the natural course of the disease. Analysis findings demonstrate that cognitive deficits predict subsequent functional deficits and suggest that cognitive decline experienced by patients is followed by an observable related decline in function, consistent with previously proposed hypotheses. These data were presented today at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark as part of the featured research session, "Statistics in the Race against Alzheimer's Disease." Hong Liu-Seifert, Ph.D., study research advisor at Eli Lilly stated, "These data support the concept that decline in cognition is later reflected in changes in function. This suggests that with treatments that target the underlying neuropathology of disease, effects on function may take longer to observe in clinical studies. Currently available scales were not developed to assess subtle functional changes or treatment effects on these deficits in patients with early or mild Alzheimer's disease, and there is debate as to how much variability exists in these scales globally. Therefore, we support discussion of alternative ways to demonstrate clinical meaningfulness in early or mild Alzheimer's disease."

17:02 EDTVLOValero sees Q2 EPS $1.10-$1.25, consensus $1.39
Valero's refining segment operating income is expected to be higher in the second quarter of 2014 versus the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher throughput volumes, as well as wider discounts on sour crude oil and certain types of North American light crude oil, which offset weaker year-over-year gasoline and distillate margins in most regions. In addition, Valero's ethanol segment operating income is expected to be higher in the second quarter of 2014 versus the second quarter of 2013 mainly due to higher gross margins. Valero also expects to report a loss from discontinued operations of $63M, or 12c per share, related primarily to a noncash charge associated with recognizing an asset retirement obligation for the Aruba refinery.
