    • Analyst Jami Rubin ups the forecast for 2018 EPS to $4.50 which, although below MYL's own expectations (as derived from its 5-year compound annual growth rate guidance), is above consensus.
    • A key driver behind the call: A higher "probability for generic Copaxone and Advair/Seretide."
    • Rubin says generic Advair/Seretide could add over $2 to EPS on an unadjusted basis.

    • Mylan (MYL +4.6%) hits another fresh high as the FDA's guidance regarding generic versions of Glaxo's (GSK) Advair strikes optimism that the generic-drug maker will one day get clearance to sell its own soon.
    • Up to now, no generic competitor to Advair has emerged because it's been unclear what would be required by regulators in order to win approval.
    • The FDA’s new guidelines now make it possible for Advair rivals to hit the market by 2016 or 2017.
    • MYL is considered one of the most viable companies to develop an Advair competitor.

    • Mylan (MYL +1.3%) says its proposed acquisition of the Agila injectables businesses from Strides Arcolab has received approval from India's Foreign Investment Promotion Board.
    • The deal also received approval from the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs.
    • The approval comes as a relief for MYL, as India had frozen the deal earlier this year, and was considering a change to its foreign investment laws to protect the country's supply of cheap, lifesaving drugs.
    • The transaction is expected to close in Q4.

    More on Mylan (MYL): Q1 misses on top line estimates as net earnings fell 17% Y/Y amid acquisition-related expenses and other items. The generic-drug maker reported modest growth for the quarter, thanks to its specialty business which posted revenue growth of 22% to $226.6M. Generics revenue was flat at $1.41B, as growth in its EMEA segment and its Asia Pacific business was offset by declines in North America. Gross margin rose slightly to 42.5% from 42.3%. Shares -3.4% AH.
