The Mover: Illumina (ILMN) dropped 1 percent.

Trader Comment: “Roche confirmed that they’re going hostile, that it’s a $44.50 bid for a stock that’s trading over $52 a share ,” said Jon Najarian. “They’re playing a little game of chicken here to see exactly how much they can hold Roche’s feet to the fire to get this deal done at a higher price.”

The Mover: Altria (MO) dropped 2 percent.
