Abstract
Global frequentist fits to the CMSSM and NUHM1 using the MasterCode framework predicted M-h similar or equal to 119 GeV in fits incorporating the (g - 2) mu constraint and similar or equal to 126 GeV without it. Recent results by ATLAS and CMS could be compatible with a Standard Model-like Higgs boson around M-h similar or equal to 125 GeV. We use the previous MasterCode analysis to calculate the likelihood for a measurement of any nominal Higgs mass within the range of 115 to 130 GeV. Assuming a Higgs mass measurement at M-h similar or equal to 125 GeV, we display updated global likelihood contours in the (m(0), m(1/2)) and other parameter planes of the CMSSM and NUHM1, and present updated likelihood functions for m((g) over tilde), m((q) over tildeR), BR(B-s -> mu(+)mu(-)) and the spin-independent dark matter cross section sigma(SI)(p). The implications of dropping (g - 2) mu from the fits are also discussed. We furthermore comment on a hypothetical measurement of M-h similar or equal to 119 GeV.
