Clovis upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Kennen MacKay upgraded Clovis Oncology (CLVS) to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $41 from $19. Clovis closed yesterday up 13%, or $3.92, to $34.83. The potential for a takeover "outweighs concerns surrounding patent life, limited experience in platinum resistant/refractory patients, and PARPi competition," MacKay tells investors in a research note. Clovis could be worth $35-$41 per share in a buyout on operational synergies, and $52-$55 per share with leveraged tax benefits, MacKay estimates. He points out that Eli Lilly (Lill)y, Merck (MRK), Japan's Takeda and others have expressed interest in acquiring U.S. oncology companies.

Bristol-Myers price target lowered to $62 from $65 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Richard Purkiss lowered his price target for Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) to $62 saying he sees the company ceding Opdivo's early-mover advantage in lung cancer to competitors. The analyst expects to see details from Roche's (RHHBY) positive OAK trial of Tecentriq vs. docetaxel in non-small cell lung cancer at the upcoming ESMO meeting. Purkiss also expects to see details from Merck's (MRK) positive KEYNOTE-024 trial of Keytruda. The analyst lowered his post-2016 Opdivo forecasts and reiterates a Neutral rating on Bristol shares.

AASLD abstracts hint at potential competitive threat to Gilead HCV, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Geoffrey Porges says abstracts for the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, or AASLD, meeting revealed very limited efficacy information about the new Hepatitis C regimens for Gilead (GILD), Merck (MRK) and AbbVie (ABBV). Nonetheless, the analyst believes the abstracts hint at the potential competitive threat to Gilead's HCV dominance. While the new 12-week HCV regimens may compete on price, the forthcoming 8-week regimens put the most pressure on Gilead's market share, Porges argues. He reiterates a Market Perform rating on Gilead's shares.

Incyte Epacadostat Phase 1 Melanoma data maturing well, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Michael Schmidt says the data from ECHO-202 Phase 1 study evaluating the combination of Incyte's (INCY) IDO1 inhibitor epacadostat with Merck's (MRK) Keytruda confirms the previously published results and appears to be maturing well. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Incyte's shares, saying Jakafi remains a compelling long-term growth driver for the company, expectations for baricitinib are still moderate, and its maturing oncology pipeline of 14 molecules including epacadostat represents a long-term value driver.
