12:06 EDTAMGNAmgen to pay $71M in 48-state settlement over Aranesp, Enbrel promotions
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced his Office has participated in a $71M multi-state settlement with Amgen to resolve allegations it unlawfully promoted the biologic medications Aranesp and Enbrel. West Virginia will receive $845,637.82 as part of the settlement, which was negotiated between the company and Attorneys General from 48 states and the District of Columbia. A complaint in the matter was filed Tuesday morning in Kanawha County Circuit Court. Aranesp is used to treat certain types of anemia by stimulating bone marrow to produce red blood cells. Enbrel is used to treat a number of conditions, including plaque psoriasis. In addition to the $71M settlement, the agreement requires Amgen to reform its marketing and promotional practices. In addition to West Virginia, the other states participating in this settlement are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming and the District of Columbia.

07:33 EDTFBPiper's Munster sees virtual reality moving Facebook shares higher
Three themes centering on virtual reality could move shares of Facebook higher over the next three months, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster tells investors in a research note. First up in September, Facebook's Oculus unit will host a developer conference in Los Angeles which will address investor questions around the virtual reality use case, Munster writes. Second, the consumer version of Oculus, called Rift, will be available slightly earlier than investors expect with sales starting in January of next year, Munster believes. And third, based on his analysis on LinkedIn profiles, Munster thinks Facebook is making the most aggressive investment in VR talent. He has increased confidence in the social media giant's long term virtual position and reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock with a $146 price target. Facebook closed yesterday down 49c to $93.93.

13:11 EDTYELPAlibaba unlikely to make competing offer for zulily, say Baird
zulily (ZU) shareholder Alibaba (BABA) is unlikely to make a competing takeover bid for the online retailer, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. Alibaba, which upped its stake in zulily to 9% in May, likely views the company as an investment rather than a vehicle to enter the U.S. market, Sebastian argues. This morning, Liberty Interactive (QVCA) announced it had reached an agreement to acquire zulily for $18.75 per share or $2.4B. The analyst sees strategic benefits from the deal. Increased takeover activity in the small-cap internet space could support the valuations of the remaining independents, including ChannelAdvisor (ECOM), Yelp (YELP), Groupon (GRPN), Angie's List (ANGI) and RetailMeNot (SALE), Sebastian writes. Shares of zulily are soaring 47% to $18.50 following the takeover agreement.
