Actelion Ltd. (ATLN), the Swiss drugmaker that gets almost 90 percent of sales from a treatment for a rare lung disease, raised its full-year profit forecast as second-quarter sales beat estimates and it cut spending.

The brighter outlook may renew takeover speculation, said Andrew Weiss, an analyst at Bank Vontobel AG in Zurich.
