Sanofi announced Friday a recall of over-the-counter heartburn medication Zantac in the U.S. and Canada, because of possible contamination with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which is believed to cause cancer. The U.S.-listed stock fell 0.9% in morning trading. Sanofi said it was working with health authorities to determine the level and extent of the recall. The recall comes less nearly three weeks after CVS Health Corp. , Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. and Rite Aid Corp. said they were pulling Zantac from their drugstores' shelves following a Food and Drug Administration warning that the the product could contain low levels of NDMA. "Evaluations are ongoing on both drug substance (active ingredient) and finished drug product," Sanofi said Friday in a statement. "Due to inconsistencies in preliminary test results of the active ingredient used in the U.S. and Canadian products, Sanofi has made the decision to conduct the voluntary recall in the U.S. and Canada as the investigation continues." Sanofi's shares have gained 6.2% year to date, while the SPDR S&P Pharmaceuticals ETF has gained 2.0% and the S&P 500 has climbed 19.5%
WBA is a technical turnaround play as the shares have fallen from $86 in December to an August low of $49. Since the beginning of April, following most of the price damage, the stock has traded sideways as downside momentum has abated. An attempted breakout in September on a big pickup in volume failed as it closed a gap and approached the 200-day average (currently $57). WBA then pulled back to its 50-day and bullishly held. Since October 9, the stock has rebounded once again. If it can clear its 200-day and the recent high at $58, the shares have room to run well into the $60's.
