17:00 EDTSHLDOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in lackluster fashion as the averages opened just above yesterday’s close. There was little early reaction to the morning’s economic reports including the jobless claims data, Philadelphia Fed report, leading economic indicators, and natural gas storage change report. But by mid-day, the Dow had asserted itself as the day’s leader while the Nasdaq struggled to stain positive territory. As the afternoon progressed the Dow continued its advance, the Nasdaq hit 14-year highs, and the S&P also touched a new all-time high. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Jobless Claims data continues to trend lower, with the week of August 16 coming in at 298K vs. a consensus of 300K... The PMI Manufacturing Index Flash was strong at 58.0 for August, up 1.7 points from the July flash of 56.3. COMPANY NEWS: eBay (EBAY) rose almost 5% after a report said that a PayPal spin-off was under consideration... Hormel (HRL) gained almost 5% and hit a 52-week high after reporting better than expected earnings before the market opened... Sears Holding (SHLD) fell over 7% after reporting Q2 earnings this morning that missed on the top and bottom lines. INDEXES: The Dow closed up 60.36, or 0.36%, to 17,039.49, the Nasdaq closed up 5.62, or 0.12%, to 4,532.10, and the S&P 500 closed up 5.86, or 0.29%%, to 1,992.37.

05:42 EDTAZNIllumina announces strategic partnership with AstraZeneca, Sanofi, Janssen
Illumina (ILMN) announced it has formed collaborative partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies to develop a universal next-generation sequencing, or NGS,-based oncology test system. The system will be used for clinical trials of targeted cancer therapies with a goal of developing and commercializing a multi-gene panel for therapeutic selection, resulting in a more comprehensive tool for precision medicine. Initial strategic partners include AstraZeneca (AZN), Janssen Biotech, a Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) company, and Sanofi (SNY). Illumina is working with the strategic partners to develop assays that detect and measure multiple variants simultaneously to support partners’ clinical trials, with the objectives of securing regulatory agency approvals and test commercialization. In parallel, Illumina is working with key thought leaders to set standards for NGS-based assays in routine clinical oncology practice, as well as to define regulatory frameworks to enable this new testing paradigm. Together, Illumina and its strategic partners aim to transition from single-analyte companion diagnostics to panel-based assays that select for “companion therapeutics.”
