08:01 EDTOREXOrexigen Contrave could have stronger launch than peers, says Wells Fargo
After the FDA approved Orexigen's (OREX) Contrave as a treatment option for chronic weight management, Wells Fargo does not believe the label included any significant surprises. The firm thinks multiple factors increase the chances that Contrave's launch will be stronger than two other weight loss drugs that were launched in recent years by VIVUS and Arena Pharmaceuticals (ARNA). The firm keeps an Outperform rating on Orexigen.

16:04 EDTAGNPershing Square reports 9.7% stake in Allergan, sends letter to board
Pershing Square Capital Management sent a letter to the board of Allergan that highlights several reasons why Allergan is extremely shareholder unfriendly and why now is the time for Allergan's management team to wake up. In the letter, Pershing Square said: "Since the bid was announced in April, 75% of Allergan’s shareholders have sold all or a portion of their investment including the company’s largest shareholder, which has sold its entire position. These shareholders are sending the board a message. They would not have sold if they believed that Allergan stock was worth more than current values... We note CFO Jeff Edwards recent decision to retire from the company at age 53 for family reasons, and his replacement by an investor relations executive rather than an experienced public company CFO. The notion that Allergan should execute the largest acquisition in its history led by an investor relations executive is a frightening proposition. While we respect an executive’s need to retire from a company for family reasons, Edwards exit also calls into question the company’s forward earnings guidance which shareholders expected him to execute on when the Company presented these projections on July 21st. I had expected that at some point one or more directors would have woken up and smelled the coffee. There is still time for a subset of directors to rescue their reputations by taking over leadership of this process from David Pyott and his handpicked advisors and doing what you are paid $400,000 per year to do on behalf of the company’s owners."
