Ascendis Pharma shares surge 42% on competitor's flop
Ascendis Pharma shares surged 42% in premarket trade Friday after news that competitor Versartis Inc.'s late-stage clinical trial missed its primary endpoint. Both companies are developing human growth hormone therapies. Wedbush analyst Liana Moussatos raised Ascendis Pharma's price target nearly 81% to $65 on Friday, calling Versartis' human growth hormone product 'no longer a threat.' Ascendis Pharma's treatment for pediatric growth hormone deficiency is expected to finish enrollment in a late-stage trial in the fourth quarter of this year, and the company also plans to start two trials in the second half of this year, Moussatos said, with results expected in the second half of next year and applications for Food and Drug Administration approval in the first half of 2019. Ascendis Pharma shares have surged 20.5% over the last three months and Versartis shares have surged 25.6%, compared with a 2.7% rise in the S&P 500 .

Wal-Mart testing delivery service that will bring items into your home
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is testing a program that will deliver items, not just to your doorstep, but into your house. The retail giant has partnered with August Home, a provider of smart locks and smart home accessories, for the test. Customers place their order online, and a third-party driver from Deliv will bring the items to a shopper's home, using a one-time passcode that's been pre-authorized by the shopper to allow entry. The driver will then leave boxes by the door and put grocery items in the kitchen, even the refrigerator, before leaving. Customers can watch the process on the August Home app, and will receive confirmation that the door has been locked behind them. The test is being conducted in Silicon Valley using a few August Home customers, according to a blog post from Sloan Eddleston, vice president of Walmart e-Commerce Strategy and Business Operations, posted on the company website. Wal-Mart shares are nearly flat in Friday premarket trading, and up 15.8% for the year so far. The S&P 500 index is up 11.7% for the year so far, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 13.1% for the period.

Shares of Versartis Inc. plummet 82% late Thursday after the biopharmaceutical company said its drug somavaratan failed to meet its primary endpoint in a phase 3 trial. The drug, a form of human growth hormone that seeks to treat growth-hormone deficiency, failed to demonstrate superiority to Genotropin, an offering from Pfizer Inc. , in a study focusing on pediatric growth-hormone deficiency. 'We are very surprised and disappointed to learn the outcome,' Chief Executive Jay Shepard said in Thursday's announcement, adding that the company planned to provide a corporate update later this year. Versartis shares have gained 27% in the past three months, more than 10 times the gains for the S&P 500 Index in the same period, and nearly 45% so far this year.
