12:35 EDTFTNTCybersecurity stocks rally after Raytheon announces joint venture
The shares of cybersecurity companies are rising after Raytheon (RTN), a major defense contractor, announced that it was forming a cybersecuity joint venture with a company in the sector, Websense. Raytheon will acquire control of Websense as part of the deal. WHAT'S NEW: Raytheon announced that it had agreed to form a joint venture with Websense, which is owned by Vista Equity Partners. Under the deal, Websense will combine with Raytheon Cyber Products, a business unit of Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services segment. Raytheon will pay about $1.57B for an 80.3% stake in the joint venture. Additionally, Raytheon will pay $1.9B, net of cash acquired, to buy Websense. Of the $1.9B, $600M will be in the form of an intercompany loan to the joint venture. The combined company will be treated as a separate business segment of Raytheon, the defense contractor stated. John McCormack, the CEO of Websense, will be the CEO of the unit. The deal is expected to close next quarter. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Wells Fargo analyst Sam Pearlstein wrote that the deal will raise Raytheon's non-GAAP, 2015 adjusted earnings per share by about 6c. However, the transaction will lower Raytheon's EPS on a GAAP basis for 2015 by 48c, driven by amortization of intangibles, deferred revenue, and one-time costs, according to Pearlstein. The analyst kept an Outperform rating on Raytheon shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Cybersecurity company Check Point (CHKP) reported stronger than expected first quarter results today. Its Q2 guidance was roughly in-line with analysts' consensus estimates at the midpoints of the ranges given for earnings and revenue. Additionally, Check Point announced a partnership with another cybersecurity company, FireEye (FEYE). The companies said they would share threat intelligence to protect customers from modern advanced attacks. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading,Check Point jumped 5.4% to $86.14, FireEye rose 3.8% to $42.39, Palo Alto (PANW) gained 2.4% to $146, Fortinet (FTNT) added 1.7% to $34.28, Proofpoint (PFPT) advanced 1.7% to $58, and Raytheon slid 0.3% to $107.40.

08:46 EDTPBYIPuma Biotechnology expands cohort in Phase II PB272 trial
Puma Biotechnology has expanded the second cohort from its Phase II clinical trial of its lead drug candidate PB272 as a single agent in patients with solid tumors who have an activating HER2 mutation. The cohort that has been expanded is the cohort that includes patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer and whose tumors have a HER2 mutation. The Phase II basket trial, which was initiated in October 2013, is an open-label, multicenter, multinational study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of PB272 administered daily to patients who have solid tumors with activating (driver) ERBB mutations, including epidermal growth factor receptor, HER2 and HER3. The cohorts (baskets) included in the study are (1) bladder/urinary tract cancer; (2) breast cancer; (3) colorectal cancer; (4) endometrial cancer; (5) gastric/esophageal cancer; (6) ovarian cancer; (7) all other solid tumors with a HER2 mutation; (8) EGFR mutated and/or amplified primary brain cancer; and (9) solid tumors with a HER3 mutation. The non-small cell lung cancer patients initially entered the study in the “other solid tumors with a HER2 mutation” basket and due to the preliminary activity seen in the trial the Company has expanded the basket, as per the protocol for the trial. The expanded HER2 mutant NSCLC basket will now enroll a total of 18 patients.
