United Airlines (UAL) detected a breach of its computer systems in May or early June, reported Bloomberg, citing several people familiar with an investigation into the matter. The cyberattack on United has been linked to the China-backed hackers said to be responsible for several other large incursions, including thefts of data from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and health insurer Anthem (ANTM), according to several of the people who talked to Bloomberg. Publicly traded companies in the cybersecurity space include Barracuda (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), FireEye (FEYE), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), Qualys (QLYS) and Symantec (SYMC).

07:43 EDTARIAARIAD to receive up to $200M through Iclusig synthetic-royalty financing with PDL BioPharma
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals (ARIA) announced that it will receive $100 million in cash – $50 million upon deal execution late yesterday and an additional $50 million in one year – through a synthetic-royalty financing from PDL BioPharma (PDLI) in exchange for paying PDL a mid-single-digit royalty on future sales of Iclusig until PDL receives a fixed internal rate of return. ARIAD also has an option, in its discretion, to receive up to an additional $100 million at any time between 6 and 12 months from the date of the agreement, in one or two tranches on comparable terms. ARIAD intends to use the base funds to conduct a front-line trial of brigatinib, its investigational ALK inhibitor, in patients with non-small cell lung cancer and to support brigatinib commercial readiness, as well as to continue its ongoing Iclusig initiatives. ARIAD is on track to complete enrollment in the pivotal ALTA trial of brigatinib in third quarter 2015, to file for approval in the U.S. next year, and subject to regulatory approval, to launch brigatinib by early 2017. Brigatinib has Breakthrough Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “This financing allows us to accelerate initiation of the front-line trial of brigatinib and to ensure launch readiness as early as possible, while retaining strategic flexibility with respect to partnering and long-term commercialization of brigatinib,” said Harvey J. Berger, M.D., chairman and CEO of ARIAD. “We are confident based on the latest clinical data on brigatinib and other ALK‐inhibitors, that brigatinib may be an important new cancer medicine for patients with ALK+ lung cancer. With the funding provided by this royalty transaction, we expect to start the front-line trial by early next year, ahead of our expected filing for initial marketing approval of brigatinib in patients with refractory ALK+ NSCLC.”

Stocks began the session mixed on the heels of weak earnings reports from both Caterpillar (CAT) and 3M (MMM). The Nasdaq managed to spend most of the day in positive territory but joined the other averages in negative territory by mid-afternoon. Selling picked up momentum towards late afternoon, and by day’s end each of the averages were lower by more than 0.4%, with the Dow losing nearly 0.7%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell to 255,000 in the week ended July 18, below the 278,000 first-time claims that were expected. The Leading Economic Indicators advanced 0.6% in June, exceeding expectations for a 0.3% increase. In Asia, the Shanghai Composite index advanced for a sixth straight session, adding another 2.4%. In Europe, the Greek Parliament voted to accept creditor terms for a new bailout, though a decision on when to reopen Greek financial markets was deferred to next week. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of General Motors (GM) finished the session up 3.96% to $31.50 after reporting earnings per share above analyst expectations. Other notable names rising following earnings reports include SanDisk (SNDK), Under Armour (UA), Southwest (LUV)... Caterpillar, meanwhile, dropped $2.86, or 3.59%, to $76.90 after cutting its yearly guidance during this morning's earnings report, with the company noting a "relatively stagnant" global economy. Also lower following earnings were Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK), Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), Dunkin Brands (DNKN), and Boston Scientific (BSX). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cigna (CI), which rose $3.29, or 2.18%, to $154.36 after the Wall Street Journal reported last night that Anthem (ANTM) is nearing a deal to acquire the company for roughly $187, representing a total transaction value of over $48B. Adding to that report, CNBC's David Faber said on Thursday morning that Anthem will announce an agreement Friday to purchase Cigna for $188 per share, at a 45% equity, 55% cash split. Also higher were shares of numerous IT security companies, with FireEye (FEYE) advancing 4.53% and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) adding 2.33% after earnings reports from security firms Fortinet (FTNT) and F5 Networks (FFIV) beat on both top and bottom lines.
