    Momenta Pharma shares halted as drug application hits speed bump

    Momenta Pharmaceuticals Inc. were halted in the extended session Friday after the biotech company said a supplier's compliance issue could delay approval of a higher dose of one of its multiple sclerosis drugs. Momenta shares were halted at $19 after hours. The company said a key supplier of its Glatopa multiple sclerosis drug, Pfizer Inc. , was served with a Food and Drug Administration Warning Letter, meaning something at the Pfizer facility was not in compliance with FDA code. Until the facility demonstrates compliance, Momenta said that approval for its marketing application for a 40 mg. dose of Glatopa is "unlikely" in the first quarter. Pfizer shares declined 0.4% to $33.48 after hours.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit for more information on this news.

    House Speaker Ryan says plan for ACA repeal and replace to be introduced later this month

    House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that Republicans plan to introduce legislation for the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act after Feb. 20, or President's Day. The House of Representatives' first day back in session is Feb. 27, according to its calendar. The timing is this way because "we're waiting for our scores" from the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation, Ryan said. "Pending our drafting issues, we're going to be bringing it out after the... district work period," or the period between Feb. 21 and Feb. 24 during which representatives are supposed to travel home for constituent issues. Ryan did not elaborate during Thursday's press conference about the details of the replacement plan, but his statement comes in contrast with reports from a Philadelphia retreat last month that Republican lawmakers could not agree on the plan's specifics. Ryan's announcement this week comes on the heels of a Humana announcement that the company plans to withdraw from the ACA's exchanges and a Wednesday statement by Aetna Chief Executive Officer Mark Bertolini that the health law was in a "death spiral."

    Dean Foods' stock drops after profit miss, downbeat outlook

    Shares of Dean Foods Co. slumped 2.2% in premarket trade Thursday, after the food and milk processing company missed fourth-quarter profit expectations and provided a downbeat outlook.

Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted earnings per share came to 38 cents, below the FactSet consensus of 41 cents. Revenue of $2.02 billion matched the year ago revenue and the FactSet consensus. Total volume across all products declined 0.8% to 653 million gallons, but the company's share of U.S. fluid milk volumes increased by 0.1%. Looking ahead, the company expects first-quarter adjusted EPS of 12 cents to 20 cents, below the FactSet consensus of 40 cents, and projects 2017 adjusted EPS of $1.35 to $1.55, below expectations of $1.57. "In the first quarter, we expect dairy commodity inflation of nearly 20% and a roughly 1% decline in total volume performance versus prior year," said Chief Executive Ralph Scozzafava. The stock has lost 2.4% over the past 12 months through Wednesday, while the S&P 500 has climbed 24%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
