/span> and Labrador. The development will help in recovering over 700 million barrels of oil and the platform is expected to yield its first oil towards the end of 2017.

Exxon Mobil holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). However, in the near term, a stock like Braskem S.A. (NYSE: BAK) with a Zacks Rank #1 is expected to outperform the market over the next few months.

Good News for Cubist Pharmaceuticals

Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: CBST) recently received encouraging news when the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the company's antibiotic candidate ceftolozane/tazobactam (CXA-201) a fast track status in Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) indications, under the Generating Antibiotic Incentives Now (GAIN) Act.

The FDA granted the fast track status to CXA-201 for the Hospital-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (HABP)/Ventilator-Associated Bacterial Pneumonia (VABP) and Complicated Urinary Tract Infections (cUTI) indications. The US regulatory body had granted fast track status to CXA-201 for treating complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI) in Feb 2013.

With the FDA granting CXA-201 QIDP status for the above indications, the antibiotic qualifies for multiple benefits including a 5-year extension of Hatch-Waxman exclusivity (on approval) and priority review.

We note that the GAIN act was signed into law by the US president in Jul 2012 as part of the FDA Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA). The signing of the GAIN Act should benefit companies pursuing the development of novel antibiotics.

We remind investors that in Feb 2013, Cubist Pharma was granted a fast track status for CXA-201 in Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infections (cIAI).

Cubist Pharma is developing CXA-201 as a potential therapy for the treatment of serious bacterial infections in the hospitals.
