Teva shares suffering from lack of catalysts, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst David Maris attributes the continued slide in Teva (TEVA) shares largely to negative sector news such as the drug pricing debate, fears on generic pricing, and Mylan's (MYL) EpiPen issue, but also thinks the slide has been made worse by Teva's lack of near-term catalysts. Additionally, the ongoing Copaxone generic trial and Teva's recently filed suit against Rimsa's founders over allegedly being misled by the Mexican pharmaceutical company have added to the pressure, Maris noted. Maris acknowledges there may be "no notable catalysts" for the rest of the year for Teva, but he thinks it should be a "robust 2017" for the company and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
