On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak initiated Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Electronic Arts (EA), both with Overweight ratings. The analyst is bullish on the digital gaming shift away from "units sold" to a business model based on users, engagement, and digital monetization. He sees digital in-game offerings resulting in recurring and growth user bases, increased per-game engagement, and further monetization opportunities. 2. AstraZeneca (AZN) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) both initiated with Overweight ratings by Piper Jaffray analyst Richard Purkiss. 3. Achillion (ACHN) initiated with an Outperform by Wedbush analyst Heather Behanna, who set a $13 price target on the shares. 4. Sysco (SYY) initiated with an Underweight at Barclays and $48 price target by analyst Karen Short. 5. Five Below (FIVE), Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Dollar General (DG) all initiated with Equal Weight ratings by Barclays analyst Karen Short. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Piper still sees Clovis' rucaparib getting broader indication than Lynparza
Piper Jaffray analyst Steven Breazzano said the rucaparib response rates in platinum resistant and platinum refractory patients of 25% and 0%, respectively, reported by Clovis Oncology (CLVS) are lower than some may have been expecting and "seemingly negative on the surface." However, he continues to believe rucaparib will be approved in BRCA patients who have received 2+ lines of therapy, which is an earlier and broader patient population than assigned to competitor AstraZeneca's (AZN) Lynparza, he tells investors. The ultimate market potential and key to success is the maintenance setting, for which TESARO's (TSRO) niraparib is still best-positioned, adds Breazzano, who keeps a Neutral rating on Clovis shares.

Pfizer downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford downgraded Pfizer (PFE) to Hold citing a lack of positive catalysts. The analyst says the drivers for his upgrade to Buy have either played out or have not materialized, namely an inversion or GEP unit separation. To reflect the infusion business disposal and weaker Ibrance trends, Holford cut his mid-term earnings estimates for Pfizer by up to 7% and cut his price target for the shares to $36 from $39. The stock closed yesterday down 6c to $33.07. The analyst also sees increased risk of a major acquisition occurring over the next 12 months. In the global pharma space, Holford lists AbbVie (ABBV), Eli Lilly (LLY), Novartis (NVS) and AstraZeneca (AZN) as his top picks.
