Mattel stock plunges toward worst loss in more than two years after forecast
Mattel Inc. shares dove more than 16% late in Friday's trading session after the toy maker revealed that sales would remain flat this year. In a presentation, Chief Financial Officer Joseph Euteneuer said that sales would remain flat in constant currency this year, which was called a "significant improvement" for the company, which has struggled of late. The forecast said that the American Girl line would continue to decline as the company entered a multiyear turnaround plan for the dolls, while a decline in Thomas the Train Engine toys should at least decelerate. Barbie and Hot Wheels toys are expected to grow, while Fisher-Price is expected to stabilize by the end of the year, the presentation claimed. Mattel also said it was looking to transition to a "capital-light" manufacturing plan in 2019, which should begin to pay off in 2020. Mattel's stock was headed toward its biggest one-day percentage loss since Jan. 26, 2017, when it declined more than 17%. Mattel shares had been enjoying a rebound so far this year, rising 43.7% as the S&P 500 index gained 9.5%.

Medicare would cover CAR-T therapies under new CMS proposal
Under a new proposal by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Medicare program would cover FDA-approved CAR-T therapies. CAR-T, or chimeric anitgen receptor T-cell, therapies use genetically-engineered immune cells called T cells to more specifically target cancer cells. CMS said the proposal, announced Friday, would require Medicare to cover the cancer treatment when it is offered in a CMS-approved registry or clinical study, as long as data is collected from the patients for at least two years after treatment. CMS said it plans to use the information to decide what treatments are most beneficial to patients and which CAR-T therapies to fund in the future. "Today's proposed coverage decision would improve access to this therapy while deepening CMS's understanding of how patients in Medicare respond to it, so the agency can ensure that it is paying for CAR T-cell therapy for cases in which the benefits outweigh the risks," said CMS Administrator Seema Varma in a statement. There are currently only two approved CAR-T therapies in the U.S., and both are very expensive. Novartis's Kymriah has a list price of $475,000, while and Gilead Sciences Inc.'s Yescarta is priced at $373,000. There is no national Medicare policy for covering the expensive new cancer treatment, so it is currently up to local Medicare administrative contractors to decide whether to pay for it. Shares of Novartis have gained 4.3% in the year to date, while shares of Gilead have gained 6.3%. The SPDR S&P Pharmaceuticals ETF has gained 13.5% and the S&P 500 has gained 10.4%.
