16:23 EDTSCCOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks opened slightly higher but were unable to gather any upside momentum. They quickly crossed into negative territory but never really picked up speed to the downside. After the slightly better than expected consumer confidence reading, the averages moved back into positive ground where they spent most of the session hovering near the flat line. Near the close, comments by Fed Chair Janet Yellen that an interest rate hike "may be warranted later this year," lifted the averages into positive territory. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., real GDP growth was steady at 2.2% in Q4, falling below consensus forecasts for 2.4% growth. GDP price index grew 0.1% on a linked quarter basis, matching expectations. U.S. consumer sentiment fell to 93.0 against consensus of 92.1. The current conditions index dipped to 105.0 from February's 106.9, while the consumer expectations index dropped to 85.3 from 88.0. COMPANY NEWS: Dow Chemical (DOW) and Olin (OLN) were up 3% and 14%, respectively, after announcing that Dow will separate much of its chlorine value chain and merge the entity with Olin in a $5B deal. Additionally, the companies announced a 20-year arrangement in which Dow will supply Olin with ethylene. Late in the session, the Wall Street Journal reported that Intel (INTC) was in talks to acquire Altera (ALTR), sending both stocks higher by 6% and 28%, respectively. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Carnival (CCL), which rose over 6% after beating earnings expectations and raising FY15 revenue yield guidance. Also higher was BioMarin (BMRN), jumping 11% after speculation of a Shire (SHPG) takeover deal. Among the noteworthy losers was Southern Cooper (SCCO), which fell nearly 4% after the company cancelled its Tia Maria mining project. Also lower was OvaScience (OVAS), down 10% after Oppenheimer reported pushback from academics during the company's presentation of early Augment data. Opco cautioned, however, that criticism of non-trial data is "inevitable" and JMP Securities called the results encouraging. INDEXES: The Dow rose 34.43, or 0.19%, to 17,712.66, the Nasdaq gained 27.86, or 0.57%, to 4,891.22, and the S&P 500 added 4.87, or 0.24%, to 2,061.02.

12:33 EDTNVSNovartis says CLEAR Phase IIb study met primary endpoint
Novartis announced results from the CLEAR study demonstrating that Cosentyx is significantly superior to Stelara, a widely used biologic, in achieving clear or almost clear skin for psoriasis patients. The detailed findings were presented in a late-breaking research session at the 73rd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in San Francisco, USA. Cosentyx -- at a dose of 300 mg -- is the first and only interleukin-17A inhibitor approved to treat adult patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. In this Phase IIIb study, Cosentyx met the primary endpoint of showing superiority to Stelara as assessed by the Psoriasis Area Severity Index 90 response, known as clear to almost clear skin at Week 16. PASI 90 is considered an important measure of treatment success by the European Medicines Agency and an optimal treatment goal for patients. In addition, completely clear skin at Week 16 was achieved by significantly more patients treated with Cosentyx than those receiving Stelara. In addition, Cosentyx demonstrated rapid onset of action and greater efficacy at all time points in the study up to Week 16, with 50% of Cosentyx patients achieving PASI 75 as early as Week 4 compared to Stelara. The CLEAR study follows the pivotal Phase III FIXTURE study, which showed Cosentyx was superior to Enbrel.

Incyte (INCY) announced that Novartis (NVS) received approval from the European Commission for Jakavi for the treatment of adult patients with polycythemia vera, or PV, who are resistant to or intolerant of hydroxyurea. Jakavi is the first targeted treatment approved by the European Commission for these patients. Under the Incyte-Novartis Collaboration and License Agreement signed in 2009, Novartis received exclusive development and commercialization rights to ruxolitinib outside of the United States for all hematologic and oncologic indications, and sells ruxolitinib under the name Jakavi. Ruxolitinib is marketed by Incyte in the United States as Jakafi. Jakafi is approved by the FDA for treatment of people with polycythemia vera who have had an inadequate response to or are intolerant of hydroxyurea. Jakafi is also indicated for treatment of people with intermediate or high-risk myelofibrosis, or MF, including primary MF, post–polycythemia vera MF, and post–essential thrombocythemia MF.
