Merck upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill

BofA/Merrill analyst Colin Bristow upgraded Merck to Buy and raised its price target to $70 from $57 to reflect its opportunity in first line lung cancer. Bristow significantly raised his Keytruda sales estmate to 7.5B from $5.5B following Merck's first line lung cancer data presentations at ESMO over the weekend and feedback from experts. He expects Keytruda to receive early approval/launch in first line NSCLC from the December 24 PDUFA and to become the standard of care in the identified label and further upside from chemo combo.

Leerink sees Bristol-Myers sliding after Merck's 'spectacular' Keytruda data
Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez said Bristol-Myers' (BMY) Checkmate-026 data presented at the European Society of Medical Oncology meeting was disappointing, noting there was no signal of benefit on progression-free survival or overall survival and only "modest differentiation" on response rate in the 88 patients with PDL1 biomarker positivity greater than or equal to 50%. Meanwhile, Merck (MRK) presented "spectacular" data for Keytruda monotherapy at the meeting, said Fernandez, who expects Bristol shares to be down "significantly" today in light of the meeting presentations. The analyst, who still thinks Bristol has a significant opportunity to compete with Merck's Keytruda in the PDL1 high portion of the market, keeps an Outperform rating on Bristol shares, which are down nearly 6% in pre-market trading.

Merck should strengthen leadership in first line NSCLC, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Alex Arfaei says that upcoming data should strengthen Merck's (MRK) lead in 1L NSCLC. The analyst adds that the data could support off-label use of Merck's Keytruda in additional 1L NSCLC patients, and he says that the data "should be negative" for Bristol-Myers' (BMY) Opdivo drug. Arfaei keeps an Outperform rating on Merck and a Market Perform rating on Bristol-Myers.

Merck 'steals the show' at ESMO with Keytruda data, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez said Merck (MRK) stole the show at ESMO with its Keytruda data and he continues to think the company will dominate first line lung cancer treatment for years to come in patients with 50%+ PDL1 expression. Additionally, he expects Merck to gain additional traction in the overall market, noting that confirmation that Keytruda is benefiting patients when combined with Alimta/carboplatin with Alimta maintenance raises the possibility Merck could compete broadly in the overall non-squamous patient population. However, Fernandez keeps a Market Perform rating on Merck, as he thinks its current valuation largely reflects improved growth prospects through 2020.

Incyte treatment looking 'promising,' says JMP Securities
After reviewing recent data, JMP Securities analyst Liisa Bayko says that the combination of Incyte's (INCY) Epacadostat plus Merck's (MRK) Keytruda is "emerging as a promising treatment, potentially even best in class." The analyst says that the progression free survival rate of the combination in melanoma patients "is emerging to be quite competitive," while the efficacy rate in other solid tumors "seemed encouraging." The analyst raised her price target on Incyte to $110 from $100 and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
