Piper sees bluebird regaining 'mojo and momentum'

After hosting management for an investor dinner, Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer sees bluebird bio regaining its "mojo and momentum." The analyst expects a "steady stream of positive updates and derisking" starting with BCMA CAR-T data update this week and extending into optimizing LentiGlobin's profile for sickle cell and betathal in 2017. Schimmer has an Overweight rating on bluebird shares with a $95 price target. The biotechnology company closed yesterday down 5% to $60.65.

Buy
bluebird bio weakness unwarranted after Juno trial halt, says Janney Capital
As previously reported, Janney Capital analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay said the weakness in bluebird bio (BLUE) is unwarranted on the heels of Juno's (JUNO) second clinical hold for JCAR015. Chattopadhyay notes several key differences between JCAR015 and bluebird's bb2121, including their targets, diseases, vectors, preconditioning regimens and others. He remains a buyer of bluebird ahead of a "potentially watershed ASH for its lentiglobin platform" and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Piper says CAR-T researchers must heed risks highlighted by Juno news
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said the CAR-T field has "taken another step back" after Juno Therapeutics (JUNO) put a hold on its JCAR015 trial again due to fatal cerebral edema and cautioned companies exploring these therapies to be mindful of "unnecessarily aggressive development and under-appreciation of the potent and possibly highly toxic nature" of the approach. However, Schimmer expressed his confidence that companies he covers in the CAR-T space - namely bluebird bio (BLUE), Cellectis (CLLS), Celgene (CELG), Bellicum Pharmaceuticals (BLCM), Lion Biotechnologies (LBIO) and NantKwest (NK) - will "respect the power of these platforms and remember patients' lives are more important than stock prices."
