15:12 EDTPFEMylan enters settlement, license agreement with Pfizer regarding Viagra
Mylan (MYL) announced that its subsidiaries Mylan Inc. and Mylan Pharmaceuticals have entered into a settlement and license agreement with Pfizer (PFE), Pfizer Limited and Pfizer Ireland Pharmaceuticals to settle patent litigation relating to Mylan's Abbreviated New Drug Application filed with the U.S. FDA for Sildenafil Citrate Tablets 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg.

Under the terms of the agreement, Mylan will be able to launch its ANDA products pursuant to a royalty-bearing license as early as December 11, 2017, or sooner under certain conditions, subject to FDA approval. All other terms and conditions of the settlement and license agreement are confidential, and the agreement itself is subject to review by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission.

11:12 EDTJNJJohnson & Johnson technical notes before earnings
Leading up to earnings, the shares have been trading in a narrow range largely bound by $98 at the low and $103 at the high. This trading range was preceded by a decline from the 52-week high set back in the fall of 2014. In a longer time frame, the current trading action is part of a larger potential topping process, with $95 as the midpoint. On worse than expected news, the low bound at $98 would be first important support. A breakdown below $98 would see next support at $95. A move below $95 would confirm the topping process and break the long-term uptrend. Support below $95 would be at $93.94. If results and outlook are better than expected, first resistance would be at the top of the range at $103. Next resistance would then be at $105.36. A move above that level would see $107.10, and then 52-week high and life high at $109.49 as next potential upside objectives.
