    Pfizer acquires option to buy Vivet Therapeutics for equivalent of $635.8 million

    Pfizer Inc. said Wednesday it has paid 45 million euro, or the equivalent of $51 million to acquire a 15% equity stake in privately held gene therapy company Vivet Therapeutics, and has acquired an option to buy the rest of Vivet shares for EUR560 million ($635.8 million). Pfizer's stock rose 0.2% in premarket trade. Pfizer and Vivet will collaborate on developing VTX-801, Vivet's treatment for Wilson disease, a life-threatening liver disorder of impaired copper transport. Under terms of the deal, Pfizer can exercise its option to buy 100% of Vivet after the company's delivery of certain data from the phase 1/2 trial for VTX-801. Monika Vnuk, vice president of worldwide business development at Pfizer, will join Vivet's board of directors. Pfizer's stock has gained 16.4% over the past 12 months through Tuesday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has tacked on 4.7%.

    BioScrip's stock soars after merger deal with Option Care, owned by Walgreens and Madison Dearborn

    Shares of BioScrip Inc. soared 32% toward a 4-year high in premarket trade Friday, after the company announced a deal to merge with privately held Option Care Enterprises Inc., a provider of home and alternate treatment site infusion therapy services owned by funds affiliated with Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. and private-equity firm Madison Dearborn Partners LLC (MDP).

    J&J's stock falls after reports company ordered to pay $29 million to woman dying of cancer

    Shares of Johnson & Johnson dropped 1.7% in premarket trade Thursday, after reports that the health care and consumer products giant was ordered by a California court to pay $29 million to a woman dying of cancer. The court determined J&J was liable in the suit, which claimed the cancer--mesothelioma--was caused by the asbestos in the company's talcum powder, the reports said. Last month, J&J disclosed that it received subpoenas from the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Department of Justice and the SEC to produce documents regarding liability suits related to the safety of its baby powder. The stock has gained 5.4% over the past 12 months, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has tacked on 7.3% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has advanced 3.8%.

    Health care ETF's 'bearish engulfing' chart pattern warns of an end to the recent uptrend

    The intraday U-turn in the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has produced a "bearish engulfing" reversal chart pattern, which many technicians would say warns that the 2-month uptrend in the sector has ended. The ETF (XLV) opened $93.28, above the Friday's close of $92.95, then rose to a 3-month high of $93.45 in intraday trade before reversing course to close at $91.69, or below Friday's open of $92.22. Candlestick-chart followers believe this pattern suggests that after bears took the bulls' best shot, they launched a successful counterattack that have left bulls retreating. The XLV's decliners Monday were led by shares of managed care companies WellCare Health Plans Inc. , Anthem Inc. and Humana Inc. . Among some downside levels to watch are the 200-day moving average, which currently extends to $89.23, and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the rally off the Dec. 24 closing low to Friday's high, which comes in at $85.38. The XLV has gained 6.0% year to date while the S&P 500 has run up 13.0%.

    Best Sector ETFs For March: Last Year's Laggards Have Their Day

    Some of last year's laggard sectors and the related exchange traded funds are already rebounding, but if historical trends hold firm, March could bring more of the same. Using the sector SPDR exchange traded funds as the barometers, none of the original nine members of the sector SPDR suite average March losses. Going back to 1999, the first full year of trading for the sector SPDR ETFs, the best-performing fund in that group in the month of March is the Energy Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLE).

    Medicare for All Act clips managed care and provider stocks for a second day

    Shares of managed care and provider companies slumped for a second-straight session Thursday, in the wake of the introduction of the Medicare-for-All Act to Congress on Wednesday. The bill, introduced by Reps. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Debbie Dingell of Michigan and others looks for a quick 2-year transition out of employer-sponsored coverage into single-payor Medicare run by the government. Analyst Gary Taylor at J.P. Morgan said he doesn't expect a quick snap-back rally in the managed care and provider stocks this week, but doesn't believe they could rally off lows by summer. He then expects that rally to fade into the second half of the year, as Democratic Presidential debates begin in the fall. Shares of UnitedHealth Group Inc. lost 3% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's decliners, after losing 4.9% on Wednesday; Cigna Corp. sank 3.4%, after falling 4.0% on Wednesday; Humana Inc. shed 1.0% after dropping 4.8% the day before; WellCare Health Plans Inc. slid 3.3% after giving up 3.9% Wednesday; and Anthem Inc. declined 1.8% after losing 3.6% on Wednesday. In comparison, the Dow slipped 0.2% after easing 0.3% the day before.

    Celgene's stock tumbles after Bristol-Myers shareholders oppose the buyout deal

    Shares of Celgene Corp. tumbled 8.0% in afternoon trade Thursday, after Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. shareholder Starboard Value L.P. said it plans to vote all of its shares against Bristol-Myers' proposed acquisition of Celgene. Starboard said given a history of underperformance, Bristol-Myers' management hasn't earned the right to execute a "bet the company" deal. "We are writing today as we believe that Bristol-Myers is deeply undervalued and the recent announcement of the company's proposed acquisition of [Celgene] is poorly conceived and ill-advised," wrote Jeffrey Smith, a managing member of Starboard, in a letter to shareholders. The companies said the termination fee on the deal is $2.2 billion. Starboard's letter comes a day after shareholder Wellington Management Co., which owns 8.3% of Bristol-Myers shares outstanding, said it opposed the deal. Bristol-Myers responded by saying it believes buying Celgene is the "natural next step" in the evolution of the company, as it will create "a premier biopharma company" that delivers "substantial benefits" to shareholders. Bristol-Myers stock rose 2.4% on Thursday, but has lost 21% over the past 12 months, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has rallied 9.3% and the S&P 500 has tacked on 2.8%.

    Humana earnings and revenue beat expectations

    Humana Inc. reported Wednesday fourth-quarter earnings and revenue that beat expectations, helped by lower inpatient medical utilization, which was partially offset by higher outpatient spending. The health care company's stock was still inactive in premarket trade. Net income was $436 million, or $2.58 a share, compared with $490 million, or $1.29 a share, in the same period a year ago. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted earnings per share came to $2.65, above the FactSet consensus of $2.53. Revenue rose to $14.17 billion from $13.19 billion, beating the FactSet consensus of $13.94 billion. For 2019, the company expects adjusted EPS of $17.00 to $17.50, compared with the FactSet consensus of $17.48. Humana shares have dropped 8.6% over the past three months, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has slipped 0.2% and the S&P 500 has eased 0.6%.
