  CHMP releases meeting highlights from its January 23-26 meeting

The European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) recommended eight medicines for approval at its January meeting.

  • The Committee recommended granting a marketing authorisation for Xeljanz (tofacitinib) [Pfizer (PFE)] for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
  • One hybrid medicine, Jylamvo (methotrexate) [Therakind LTD] received a positive opinion for the treatment of rheumatological disorders and psoriasis, and for the maintenance treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). Hybrid applications rely in part on the results of pre-clinical tests and clinical trials for a reference product and in part on new data.
  • Two biosimilar medicines were recommended for approval by the Committee: Amgevita [Amgen (AMGN)] and Solymbic [Amgen (AMGN)], both containing adalimumab. Amgevita is for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, paediatric plaque psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, Crohn's disease, paediatric Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and uveitis. Solymbic is intended for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, enthesitis-related arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and uveitis. A biosimilar medicine is a biological medicine that is highly similar to another biological medicine that is already authorised for use.
  • The CHMP granted positive opinions for two informed consent applications: Rolufta (umeclidinium) [GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)] for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and Tadalafil Lilly (tadalafil) [Eli Lilly (LLY)] for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. An informed consent application makes use of data from the dossier of a previously authorised medicine, with the marketing authorisation holder of that medicine giving consent for the use of their data in the application.
  • Two generic medicines received a positive opinion from the Committee: Yargesa (miglustat) [JensonR+ Limited] for the treatment of Gaucher disease and Daptomycin Hospira (daptomycin) [Pfizer (PFE)] or the treatment of complicated skin and soft-tissue infections (cSSTI), right-sided infective endocarditis (RIE) due to Staphylococcus aureus and S. aureus bacteraemia associated with RIE or with cSSTI
  • Two recommendations on extensions of therapeutic indications
    • The Committee recommended extensions of indications for Revlimid [Celgene (CELG)] and Synjardy [Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH].
  • Withdrawals of applications
    • The application for a marketing authorisation for Zioxtenzo (pegfilgrastim) [Sandoz GmbH/Novartis (NVS)] has been withdrawn. Zioxtenzo was developed as a biosimliar medicine to treat neutropenia in cancer patients.
    • An application to extend the indication of Xgeva (denosumab) [Amgen (AMGN)] to treat hypercalcemia of malignancy (high levels of calcium in the blood caused by cancer) has also been withdrawn.
  • Outcome of review on medicines containing dienogest and ethinylestradiol
    • The CHMP has recommended that medicines containing a combination of dienogest 2 mg and ethinylestradiol 0.03 mg can continue to be used to treat moderate acne when suitable treatments applied to the skin or antibiotics taken by mouth have not worked. However, these medicines, which are also approved as hormonal contraceptives, should only be used in women who choose oral contraception.

 Overnight Treasury Summary

Treasuries Edge Lower Ahead of U.S. GDP Report

  • U.S. Treasuries are ticking lower this morning ahead of the first official estimate of Q4 U.S. GDP growth (Briefing.com consensus 2.2%). The international economic data was mixed as consumer price inflation in Japan ran hotter than expected according to both national and Tokyo CPI data. In Germany, import prices rose faster than expected but Spanish retail sales missed expectations. Italian consumer confidence fell more than expected but business confidence increased. Italy's 10-year BTP yield went as high as 2.28% this morning but has stabilized and declined by six basis points since then. A ruling from Italy's highest constitutional court on Thursday increased the chance of early elections there and sent eurozone periphery debt yields skywards. The S&P 500 is set to open up 0.06% to 2,298.1 and the U.S. Dollar Index is adding 0.24% to 100.62. WTI crude is down 0.71% to $53.40/bbl. and gold is down 0.56% to $1,183.1/troy oz., a two-week low

 Mateon Therapeutics initiated with a Buy at Maxim Group; tgt $2  (0.39)Maxim Group initiates MATN with a Buy and price target of $2. The anti-angiogenic (AA) market generates over $15B annually (Avastin=$6B). Recall that Avastin is approved not just for ovarian cancer, but also glioblastoma, lung cancer, and other indications. Thus, if a CA4P combination with Avastin is successful, even just slightly (beginning with OC), there is upside at the current valuation given the market size, in firm's view.

  S&P futures vs fair value: +2.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +1.50.

Equity futures trade relatively flat this morning as investors digest a batch of earnings reports and eye a wave of influential economic data. The S&P 500 futures trade two points (+0.1%) above fair value. 

U.S. Treasuries have given back yesterday's modest gains early this morning, with the 10-yr yield sitting one basis point higher at 2.52%. For the week, Treasuries reside in negative territory, having yet to recoup the big losses suffered on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Crude oil has slipped 0.7% this morning as the hike in U.S. production has outweighed OPEC/non-OPEC production cut efforts. WTI crude trades at $53.41/bbl. 

Today's economic data will include advance fourth quarter GDP (Briefing.com consensus 2.2%) and December Durable Orders (Briefing.com consensus 3.0%) at 8:30 am ET, with the final reading of the Michigan Sentiment Index for January following at 10:00 am ET.

  • Intel (INTC 37.95, +0.39): +1.1% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue results. The company also issued upbeat guidance.

  • PayPal (PYPL 40.95, -0.55): -1.3% despite reporting top and bottom lines consistent with consensus estimates.  

Reviewing overnight developments:

  • Equity indices in the Asia-Pacific region ended the week on a mostly higher note, but participation was reduced due to holiday closures in China, Singapore, and South Korea. Japan's Nikkei +0.3%, Hong Kong's Hang Seng -0.1%, India's Sensex +0.6%.

 Microsoft: Color on Quarter  (64.27)
  • Citigroup upgraded to Neutral from Sell.
  • RBC Capital Mkts raises their MSFT tgt to $71 from $65 on higher estimates. MSFT beat F2Q17 expectations and guided above (!) RBC/ Street on revs/ EPS for F3Q17. The pieces are falling into place as thwy are starting to see an important shift in the model, with improving profitability in growth segments. This provides confidence in durability of earnings growth.
  • Stifel raises tgt to $68 from $66. Overall, this quarter continues to reinforce their bullish thesis, namely that Microsoft 1) is well positioned around its Commercial Cloud (Office 365 and Azure) and that cloud profits and cash flow should inflect this year, 2) will continue strong expense discipline even while investing in higher growth and differentiated areas, and 3) newer products will continue scaling leading to gross profit and operating income growth, and ultimately FCF growth, in coming years. Given this backdrop, along with shareholder-friendly activities (>$14B in annual dividends/buybacks; ~2.4% dividend yield), they remain Buyers.
  • BMO raises tgt to $71 from $69. They believe MSFT had a very strong quarter on many metrics. Their key focus remains on growth of operating income dollars, and MSFT's consolidated operating income grew by 11% y/y in CC excluding LinkedIn vs. their estimates (which did not include LinkedIn) of 10% y/y growth. Lowering estimates for LNKD. Since mid-2016, MSFT has been designated as our top pick. At the turn of the new year, we added Adobe (ADBE, $114.25, Outperform) as their co-top pick. Given more limited upside for MSFT, they are taking MSFT off their top pick designation and leaving ADBE.
  • MSFT +1.8% at all time highs premarket.

 European Summary

European Yields See Mixed Results Ahead of U.S. GDP Report

  • European sovereign debt yields are little changed this morning after a week that saw many countries' yields move to one-year highs. German import prices rose at the fastest year-on-year pace in almost five years in December although higher energy prices are largely to blame. Other reports out today showed that business confidence in Italy improved in January while consumer confidence weakened. European yields will almost certainly respond to today's U.S. GDP report. On Thursday, data showed that the U.K.'s GDP grew by 0.6% q/q in Q4 2016 (2.2% y/y), beating estimates. The U.K. 10-year Gilt is on track for its worst week of 2017, or alternatively, its worst week in four
  • European Economic Data:
    • German import prices rose 1.9% m/m in December (3.5% y/y), beating forecasts and accelerating from November's 0.7% growth
    • France's Consumer Confidence Index rose to 100 for January from 99 for December, as expected
    • Italian Business Confidence unexpected jumped to 104.8 for January from 103.7 for December
      • The Consumer Confidence Index fell more than expected to 108.8 from 110.9
      • Separately, Italian wages were unchanged m/m in December (+0.4% y/y), slowing from November's 0.1% growth
    • Spanish retail sales increased by 2.9% y/y in December, missing estimates and slowing from November's 3.2% pace
    • The eurozone's broad money supply, as measured by M3, grew 5.0% y/y in December. That was a touch faster than economists had predicted and faster than November's 4.8%
      • Eurozone household income grew by 0.2% in the third quarter of 2016, matching Q2's growth rate but slowing from Q1's 0.8% pace
  • Yield Check:
    • France, 10-yr OAT: unch at 1.03%
    • Germany, 10-yr Bund: -1 bp to 0 .48%
    • Greece, 10-yr note: +21 bps to 7.05%
    • Italy, 10-yr BTP: unch at 2.23%
    • Portugal, 10-yr PGB: -3 bps to 4.10%

 S&P futures vs fair value: +2.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +5.60.

Investors have not been particularly active on Friday morning, as the S&P 500 futures trade two points (+0.1%) above fair value.

A batch of high-profile technology names reported between Thursday's close and Friday's open, including Alphabet (GOOGL 855.00, -1.98), Microsoft (MSFT 65.10, +0.81), and Intel (INTC 37.89, +0.33). Microsoft and Intel are both up in pre-market trade after beating on their top and bottom lines, adding 1.4% and 0.9%, respectively, while Alphabet has slipped 0.2% after the company missed earnings expectations.

Starbucks (SBUX 56.25, -2.21) also reported quarterly results, dropping 3.8% after the coffee retailer reported disappointing revenues. Chevron (CVX 113.49, -3.13) is also down in pre-market trade, losing 2.7%, after the company missed top and bottom line estimates.

U.S. Treasuries have hit their overnight highs in recent action, with the 10-yr yield two basis points lower at 2.49%. The recent uptick came in the wake of the latest economic reports, which came in worse than expected.

Advance fourth quarter GDP pointed to an expansion of 1.9%, while the Briefing.com consensus expected a reading of 2.2%. The fourth quarter GDP Deflator came in at 2.1%, which is what the Briefing.com consensus expected.

December durable goods orders declined 0.4%, while the Briefing.com consensus expected a 3.0% increase. The prior month's reading was revised to -4.8% (from -4.6%).

 KLA-Tencor: Color on quarter — Stifel & Needham  (83.25)
  • Stifel — While Stifel anticipated strength in foundry & logic to remain key drivers for the co, the co drove record bookings ($1.1 bln) led by memory investments. The co could have seen a pickup in some metrology applications, but longer term, the co noted that it would introduce an inspection product targeting this market. Inspection generally is the co's highest ASP and margin biz. With 3D NAND being the key growth driver near term & over the next few years, Stifel notes new wins in this segment could provide some sustainability to the growth prospects. Stifel believes the co will see strong orders & shipments for its solutions related to the current 10nm ramp in the industry & for 7nm development later this year and into 2018. Stifel states this combined node (10/7nm) could emerge as the next big node, similar to what the 28nm node was for the industry (and when KLA saw its last spike in growth in 2012); maintains Hold.
  • Needham -With increasing yield-driven demand for process control at the leading edge coupled with broader investments in C2017, Needham expects KLAC to avoid a C2H17 fall-off vs other peers. Strong memory bookings in the quarter highlights an increase to memory process control intensity, with further potential growth when KLAC launches a new 3D NAND offering. New product rampups should enable KLAC to continue outperforming WFE beyond CY17. KLAC is still trading at a discount to its avg historical P/E of ~16x, but with the improved margin profile, Needham states they expect the stock to march higher; reiterates Strong Buy.

— Shares of KLAC +3.3% pre-market.

Firm is lowering their recommendation on the heels of a strong 1Q FY'17 and an even more favorable reaction in the stock price. While fiscal scope springs eternal & heavy industries are showing signs of stabilization, they are not sure ROK is as levered to Trump economics as some hope, and view having to look out to 2019 to support a stock's valuation as worthy of a Sell recommendation, particularly for a cyclical stock. They continue to like mgmt, the business and ROK's ability to stay one step ahead of competitors, but recommend investor take some chips off the table.

STBZ operates in very-attractive Atlanta (and now Savannah) geography, has demonstrated excellent credit performance, and gained meaningful scale at $4B in assets by closing the two acquisitions in the quarter. If larger banks with strong stock currencies wish to move into the market, they think STBZ presents a compelling mix of CRE lending & growing noninterest verticals.

 Midday Market Summary: S&P 500 Slightly Lower at Midday

Thursday's wait-and-see attitude has translated into range-bound action thus far in Friday's session, with the major averages having yet to deviate from their flat lines. The S&P 500 currently shows a slim loss of 0.1%.

There is a semblance of caution in the air--cyclical sectors are underperforming and Treasuries are up--but the slight apprehension has had a minimal impact on the market. Conversely, some earnings reports have shaken things up today, with a batch of tech names reporting between yesterday's close and today's open, including Alphabet (GOOGL 850.23, -6.88), Microsoft (MSFT 65.72, +1.45), and Intel (INTC 38.09, +0.52).

The tech sector (+0.4%) has been able to overcome Alphabet's below-consensus earnings, thanks in part to Microsoft's and Intel's better than expected top and bottom lines. Additionally, Intel's 1.3% advance has underpinned its fellow chipmakers thus far, pushing the PHLX Semiconductor Index higher by 0.9%.

Conversely, the energy sector (-1.2%) started the trading session in the hole after Chevron (CVX 113.83, -2.73) reported worse than expected top and bottom lines earlier this morning. Crude oil has also worked against the sector, losing 1.7%, as an uptick in U.S. production has outweighed the optimism surrounding OPEC/non-OPEC production cuts. The energy component currently trades at $52.82/bbl.

All-in-all most sectors trade in the red, with health care (+0.8%) and telecom services (+0.3%) the only sectors accompanying technology in the green. In addition to energy, financials (-0.5%), consumer discretionary (-0.5%), consumer staples (-0.7%), and real estate (-1.0%) have contributed to today's modest retreat. 

U.S. Treasuries sit near their overnight highs, with the 10-yr yield down one basis point at 2.50%. However, Treasuries remain in negative territory for the week, having yet to recoup the big losses suffered on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Today's economic data included advance fourth quarter GDP, December Durable Orders, and the final reading of the University of Michigan Sentiment Index for January:

  • Advance fourth quarter GDP pointed to an expansion of 1.9%, while the Briefing.com consensus expected a reading of 2.2%. The fourth quarter GDP Deflator came in at 2.1%, which is what the Briefing.com consensus expected.
    • The key takeaway from this report is that fourth quarter activity revealed the strong third quarter growth was as an aberration, yet that point aside, the salient takeaway for many is that this is a backward-looking report and the markets have their sights set on a brighter economic outlook for 2017, which is expected to feature deregulation, tax reform, and infrastructure spending among other items.
  • December durable goods orders declined 0.4%, while the Briefing.com consensus expected a 3.0% increase. The prior month's reading was revised to -4.8% (from -4.6%). Excluding transportation, durable orders rose 0.5% (Briefing.com consensus +0.5%) to follow the prior month's revised gain of 1.0% (from 0.5%).
    • The key takeaway from this report is that business investment remained on a positive trajectory.
  • The final reading of the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index for January rose to 98.5 (Briefing.com consensus 98.0) from 98.1 in the preliminary reading.
    • The key takeaway from the report is that consumer confidence is rising on the back of an improved outlook for economic growth, job growth, and personal finances in the year ahead.

  • The U.S. Dollar Index gained 0.19% to 100.57 today as the greenback rallied against the Japanese yen and British pound.

After reaching 103.82 on the first trading day of the year, the Dollar Index fell under 99.80 on Wednesday. European yields have shown a lot more enthusiasm on the upside on the past few sessions so it is possible that the euro and British pound begin to made headway higher against the dollar.
