12:41 EDTXOM, PETM, ARWR, MXWL, XOMA, BOBEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Nasdaq leading and the Dow lagging. The averages have hovered in a narrow range around the flat-line, though consolidation is not necessarily surprising after yesterday’s powerful advance. The market has seen little volatility today despite the continued threat of an escalation of the situation in Ukraine. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., ADP reported private payrolls rose 139K in February, which was below the expectation for 150K job additions. The ISM services index dropped to 51.6 in February, versus expectations for a more modest pullback to 53.5. The Federal Reserve is scheduled to release its latest "Beige Book" report on economic activity at 2:00 pm ET. In Europe, Eurostat's second estimate of fourth quarter growth in the region showed GDP rose by 0.3% in the eurozone countries and by 0.4% in the EU28, both of which were up from the prior quarter. Other data released overnight showed a surprise rebound in eurozone retail sales and an upward revision to the eurozone composite PMI. COMPANY NEWS: Energy major Exxon Mobil (XOM) slid 3% as the company hosted its annual analyst meeting and said it expects to invest $39.8B in 2014 but also forecast that its total production will be flat this year... Shares of PetSmart (PETM) fell 2% despite the company reporting better than expected fourth quarter earnings. Revenue for the pet goods and services retailer, however, fell short of expectations, as did the company's earnings outlook for its current quarter. On its earning call, PetSmart acknowledged that the start of its first quarter has been "challenged" due to weather, but also said it is seeing a "meaningful" difference in results between stores in weather-impacted markets and those where weather is less of a factor. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Arrowhead Research (ARWR), which rose 25% after the company's shares were initiated with a Buy rating at Deutsche Bank and with an Outperform rating at RBC Capital. Also higher was Maxwell Technologies (MXWL), which was 22% higher after Piper Jaffray raised its price target on shares to $21 from $11. Among the noteworthy losers was drug maker XOMA (XOMA), which fell 26% after saying its does not intend to launch pivotal development for the broad erosive osteoarthritis of the hand, or EOA, indication for a drug based on the results of its Phase 2 trial program. Also lower were shares of restaurant operator and packaged foods maker Bob Evans (BOBE), which fell over 8% after the company's third quarter earnings missed estimates and it lowered its fiscal 2014 outlook. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 36.66, or 0.22%, to 16,359.22, the Nasdaq was up 5.76, or 0.13%, to 4,357.73, and the S&P 500 was little changed near 1,873.93.

16:16 EDTARWRArrowhead Research provides update on phase 2a study of ARC-520
Arrowhead Research completed its dosing of 1mg/kg and 2mg/kg dose cohorts. The company's initial blinded data suggest that the magnitude of HBsAg knockdown is similar to non-human primate studies, including the chronically infected chimpanzee reported on previously. ARC-520 continues to be well tolerated, with no dropouts or serious adverse events reported. The overall rate of AEs has been lower in the phase 2a than in the phase 1 normal volunteer study and safety labs continue to show no indication of end organ toxicity.
