Amgen Inc. shares rose after study results for the cancer drug Vectibix led at least one analyst to equate the medicine with rival treatment Erbitux from Eli Lilly & Co.

With steep price cuts and a growing portion of sales coming from lower-profit items, earnings may fall short of the 48-cent average analyst estimate, Wayne Hood of Prudential Securities and Emme Kozloff of Sanford C.

BAT Industries Chief Executive Martin Broughton said the London-based cigarette maker will consider paying damages to smokers if that would end mounting legal claims against the industry. Broughton's comments mark the second time a tobacco executive has mentioned the possibility of settling liability claims. RJR Nabisco Holdings Corp.
