ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S. no market moving economic data was reported... COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) announced it will repurchase $6.75B worth of residential mortgage loans it sold to Fannie Mae and will pay $3.6B to settle claims related to certain residential mortgage loans.

Separately from BofA's settlement with Fannie Mae, the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency reached an agreement under which ten mortgage servicing companies will pay more than $8.5B in cash payments and other assistance to mortgage borrowers to settle claims of deficient practices in loan servicing and foreclosure processing. The regulators listed Bank of America, Citibank (C), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), MetLife Bank (MET), PNC (PNC), SunTrust (STI), U.S. Bank (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC) among those participating but did not spell out the level of compensation to be paid by each...

Also higher were shares of Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (PPHM), which advanced 72% after the company updated on its internal review of one of clinical trials and Roth Capital upgraded the stock to a Buy. Among the noteworthy losers was ITT Educational (ESI), which fell nearly 17% after reporting Friday night that it has entered into a settlement agreement and release with Sallie Mae and Credit Suisse lowered its price target on the stock in a note to investors this morning.

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals announced the presentation of clinical data related to the company's immuno-oncology development program and its lead investigational immunotherapy drug candidate bavituximab at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium. In this single-center, single-arm, open-label investigator-sponsored trial, 38 patients with advanced HCC received bavituximab weekly and sorafenib twice daily until disease progression or toxicity. Data show that the combination of bavituximab and sorafenib is associated with an improved time to progression of 6.7 months, a disease specific survival of 8.7 months, a disease control rate of 58% and a 4-month progression-free survival of 62%. Two patients achieved a partial response according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors. The secondary endpoint of median overall survival was 6.2 months.
