Global frequentist fits to the CMSSM and NUHM1 using the MasterCode framework predicted Mh≃119 GeV in fits incorporating the (g-2)μ constraint and ≃126 GeV without it. Recent results by ATLAS and CMS could be compatible with a Standard Model-like Higgs boson around Mh≃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 Mh≃125 GeV, we display updated global likelihood contours in the (m0,m1/2) and other parameter planes of the CMSSM and NUHM1, and present updated likelihood functions for m, mg̃R, BR(Bs→μ+μ-) and the spin-independent dark matter cross section σpSI. The implications of dropping (g-2)μ from the fits are also discussed. We furthermore comment on a hypothetical measurement of Mh≃119 GeV.
