06:01 EDTGWPHGW Pharmaceuticals selloff yesterday an overreaction, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer says shares of GW Pharmaceuticals sold off yesterday in response to an abstract posted for the American Epilepsy Society conference in December describing a single center's experience with Epidiolex for seizures. The results support the drug's potent activity in Dravet syndrome, but some investors have concern with the drop-out rate due to inactivity and the lower response rate compared to what has otherwise been described for Epidiolex, Schimmer told investors last night in a research note titled "Over-Reacting To A Tree When The Forest Remains In Good Shape." The dropout rate is likely a result of the center's "highly questionable" practice of stopping drug if seizure reduction doesn't reach 50%, while the lower response rate at one site shouldn't detract from a "much bigger, robust clinical experience spanning multiple centers," Schimmer argues. He reiterates an Overweight rating on GW with a $147 price target. The stock closed yesterday down $5.42 to $82.30.

08:03 EDTYHOOStarboard urges Yahoo to sell core businesses
In a letter delivered to Yahoo's Chairman, CEO And board, Starboard stresses that a proposed spin-off of Aabaco Holdings is not Yahoo's best alternative. It adds that a sales of Yahoo's core business would be the best risk-adjusted outcome for shareholders. In the letter, Starboard stated, "We have grown increasingly frustrated with your unwillingness to accept our help and your dismissive approach to our serious concerns about the current situation at Yahoo! Inc. ("Yahoo"). As you, the management team, and your advisors requested from us over a year ago, we have attempted to work with you privately and agreed not to pursue the nomination and election of directors at last year's annual meeting. Despite our numerous conversations and meetings, and notwithstanding your willingness to provide us an audience, you have been reluctant to respond or adapt to the realities of the current environment. The current situation that Yahoo faces is so important that we now feel it is necessary to communicate with management and the Board of Directors in a manner such that our message is not only as explicit as possible for you, but also for our fellow Yahoo shareholders. The proposed spin-off of Aabaco Holdings is not Yahoo's best alternative. Instead, you should be exploring a sale of Yahoo's core Search and Display advertising businesses and leave Yahoo's ownership stakes in Alibaba Group and Yahoo Japan in the existing corporate entity."
06:00 EDTYHOOStarboard sends letter to Yahoo, urges halt of Alibaba spinoff plan, WSJ reports
Yahoo (YHOO) shareholder Starboard Value sent a letter to the company urging the company to halt the plan to sell its stake in Alibaba (BABA) due to the risk of incurring taxes on the sale, the Wall Street Journal reports. The activist investor instead wants Yahoo to sell its struggling Internet business, the report says. Starboard supported the sale of over $20B in Alibaba shares before the IRS denied Yahoo's request for a private letter ruling on whether the spinoff would be considered tax free. Reference Link
