Lilly in November received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "breakthrough" status for its migraine drug Emgality in treating episodic cluster headaches.

sank about 1% to $114.26 Monday even though the company said its drug Taltz saw positive results from a Phase 3 study. Eli Lilly said the Phase 3 study of Taltz met both primary and secondary endpoints in treating a subset of patients with axial spondyloarthritis, or axSpA, a chronic inflammatory disease affecting predominantly the sacroiliac joints and the axial skeleton and is estimated to affect 4.5 million adults worldwide. Taltz met the primary endpoint at both week 16 and week 52, the Indianapolis-based company said, demonstrating a statistically significant improvement in the signs and symptoms of nr-axSpA.
It might be of some concern to shareholders to see the Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE:LLY) share price down 10% in the last month. Looking further back, the stock has generated good profits over five years. It has return...
Lilly and partner Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) said in a Thursday news release the Phase 3 study intended to evaluate tanezumab in 2.5mg and 5mg doses for its long-term safety and 16-week efficacy relative to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, in patients with moderate-to-severe osteoarthritis of the hip or knee produced mixed results. Tanezumab is an investigational monoclonal antibody that selectively targets, binds and inhibits nerve growth factor, or NGF, which increases as a result of injury, inflammation or in chronic pain states.
Shares of Eli Lilly and Co. were down 3.4% in premarket trade Monday despite the company's announcement that a Phase 3 study of its drug Taltz had met both primary and secondary endpoints in treating a subset of patients with axial spondyloarthritis. Patients on Taltz, a monoclonal antibody, showed a statistically significant improvement in symptoms 16 and 52 weeks after starting treatment, the company said. The drug's safety profile remained the same as before -- Taltz has been shown to increase a person's risk of getting infections and some patients have reported serious hypersensitivity reactions and exacerbations of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Taltz is currently approved to treat psoriatic arthritis and moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. Earlier Monday morning, Lilly announced a licensing and research collaboration with Avidity Biosciences, Inc., a privately-held biotech company that has developed a platform using properties of monoclonal antibodies and oligonucleotide-based therapeutics to target genetic diseases. Under the terms of the agreement, Lilly will pay Avidity $20 million upfront and make an additional investment in the company of $15 million. Avidity will be eligible to receive up to $405 million in milestone payments, as well as tiered royalties depending on product sales.

This selloff, which actually started at the end of the last quarter, has taken apart the managed care stocks, the drug stocks, the devices and finally the biotechs. No matter, the fact is that every day there were moments in this tsunami where you simply couldn't believe the torrent of selling, but you most likely didn't even know what was going to spring a leak next. Being diversified is defensive, as we know: If you had all health care bought in March, you might be done for 2019! But I think, more important and less talked about, it allows you to be offensive, too.
Shares of drug makers Pfizer Inc. and Eli Lilly & Co. declined in the extended session Thursday after the companies said a clinical study of an osteoarthritis drug didn't meet certain goals. Pfizer shares declined 1% after hours, following a 1.3% decline to close at $39.38 in the regular trading session. Lilly shares fell 1.9% after hours, following a 1.1% close lower at $115.20. The companies said that a late-stage study of their drug tanezumab at 5 mg did not show a statistically significant improvement in overall osteoarthritis symptoms compared with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. A 2.5 mg dose did not show a statistically significant improvement in pain, physical function or patients' overall assessment, the companies said. "We are analyzing these findings in the context of the recent Phase 3 results as we assess potential next steps for tanezumab," said Ken Verburg, Pfizer's tanezumab development team leader, in a statement. "We plan to review the totality of data from our clinical development program for tanezumab with regulatory authorities."
A lower dose of non-opioid painkiller developed by Pfizer Inc and Eli Lilly and Co failed to meet main goals in a late-stage study in patients with moderate-to-severe osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, the companies said on Thursday. The drug, tanezumab, belongs to a new category of pain medications that target nerve growth factor, a protein involved in the growth of nerve cells, and has been touted as a potential blockbuster. The study tested the treatment in two doses, 2.5 mg and 5 mg, comparing the long-term joint safety and effectiveness at the end of 16 weeks with painkillers that are normally prescribed to patients.

Last year's extreme sentiment fears have abated and now the equity markets are back near all-time highs. This includes stocks like AstraZeneca (NYSE:AZN) as it set a new high late last month. From that standpoint, this is not an obvious entry point into AZN stock, but whether you should buy the stock also depends on a few other factors.Source: Shutterstock Those who want to own AZN shares for the long term can afford to ignore short-term downside risk. But for most other investors who prefer to start an ownership position into a stock in the green should be slightly more surgical than just jumping in at any time.AZN stock is on a tear up 11% in 12 months. But the company will report earnings on April 26 and those events are wild. So this makes buying the stock now a short-term binary bet. Reactions to earnings scorecards are usually more to do with expectations than the actual value of a stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBefore you label me a hater, my caution for AstraZeneca stock here is not a dis against the company itself or its prospects. I am merely concerned with buying into a stock that is not likely to fall soon thereafter. Looking back on its prior reactions to earnings, they are split. * 10 Dow Jones Stocks Holding the Blue Chip Index Back Last quarter, the stock spiked drastically on the results, which left a giant open gap in the chart. Although this does not happen all of the time, Wall Street usually likes to fill these gaps.Since the spike to all-time highs, AZN stock has been drifting lower and testing recent support. If it loses $40 per share, it risks triggering a bearish pattern that would close the gap below. Although this is not a forecast, it is a scenario that could unfold here and investors need to be aware of it.The good news is that $39 per share is a mid-term pivot level and those tend to lend support on the way down. These are zones that the bulls and bears find interesting, so they will fight it out and create price congestion. How to Approach AZN Stock NowSo far my reservation to owning the shares immediately has been technically based. Fundamentally, AZN stock is not cheap as it sells at a price-to-earnings ratio of 47. This is more than three times as expensive as Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY) and twice as expensive as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) … to draw absolute and relative comparisons, respectively.Moreover, healthcare and biotech stocks are back in the sights of the political rifles. This is the only current bipartisan consensus topic. Both Democrats and Republicans want to vilify and persecute the drug companies. The rhetoric of both sides involves bringing legislation that would bring down the price of medicine and change the current Health Care Act. * 7 Vulnerable Stocks to Watch On Brexit News and Trade Wars These are nervous times on Wall Street. The S&P 500 has been on an extended run since the December crash and that makes investors nervous. Almost everyone I hear in the media suggests that traders are ready to sell at the first sign of trouble. So the prevailing idea is that we've come too far too fast. For some reason, they didn't say that on the way down, when last year we fell even faster and farther.But for now, we have to respect the collective and be cautious. This is not an obvious time to load up on new positions of AZN stock, even if it means I would miss out on a few upside dollars if it rips. And for those who already own AstraZeneca stock, it's not an alarm to sell out of the position. Furthermore, the options markets offer many ways I can temporarily defend my shares by selling covered calls or buying puts. Doing both would be a dollar neutral strategy.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com. As of this writing, he did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
