07:04 EDTPFEPfizer says primary endpoint met in Phase 3 study of BeneFIX
Pfizer announced the positive results of a Phase 3 study comparing a prophylaxis regimen of BeneFIX Coagulation Factor IX 100 IU/kg once-weekly to on-demand treatment in people with moderately severe to severe hemophilia B. The top-line results of the study showed that the primary study endpoint was met and hemophilia B patients taking once-weekly BeneFIX showed a statistically significant reduction in the annualized bleeding rate relative to on-demand treatment with BeneFIX. In the study, the median ABR value, a commonly used measure of efficacy for prophylaxis regimens in hemophilia, was 2.0 for the prophylaxis regimen, compared to 33.6 for the on-demand regimen, representing a 94% decrease in bleeding rates. The mean ABR value was 3.6 for the prophylaxis period, compared to 32.9 for the on-demand treatment, which represents a reduction of 89%. Study results also showed that prophylaxis treatment significantly reduced both spontaneous and traumatic ABR compared to on-demand treatment with BeneFIX. In addition to meeting the primary endpoint, the secondary study endpoints showed that none of the 1,254 prophylaxis infusions administered during the study were associated with a less than expected therapeutic effect occurrence, which was defined as a spontaneous bleed occurring within 48 hours of a prophylaxis infusion. These results are preliminary, top-line data and are subject to additional analyses. Complete results from this study will be submitted for presentation at upcoming medical congresses and submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
06:26 EDTRHHBYBristol-Myers lung cancer trials being underestimated, says Citigroup
After building a statistical model of Bristol-Myers' two critical registration trials for Opdivo in lung cancer, Citigroup believes the market is "materially" underestimating both Phase III trials. Citi says potential Opdivo FDA approval in 2015 in lung cancer would give Bristol-Myers an up to two year lead time versus Merck (MRK) and Roche (RHHBY). The firm estimates 2023 Opdivo revenue at $7B and reiterates a Buy rating on Bristol with a $60 price target.

10:56 EDTAMGNFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
10:33 EDTAMGNFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially "stretched," particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.
