FDA decision a significant boost for Merck, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Alex Arfaei says that the FDA's acceptance and priority review of Merck's Keytruda+chemo in first line non-small cell lung cancer "is a positive surprise." and "represents significant upside" for the company. The analyst thinks that Keytruda's market share in first line non-small cell lung cancer can reach about 80%-85%, up from about 25% now. He continues to identify Merck as his top pick.

Merck filing for Keytruda could disrupt market, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford views Merck's (MRK) filing for Keytruda plus chemo in first line non-small cell lung cancer as a "positive surprise" that could disrupt market share dynamics in the near term, particularly for Bristol-Myers (BMY). The filing, however, does not materially change Merck's long term outlook, Holford tells investors in a research note. He believes approval risk is high given limited data and keeps an Underperform rating on Merck. The stock is up $1.78 to $61.70 in pre-market trading while Bristol-Myers is down $1.98 to $58.00.

Keytruda filing a 'distinct positive' for Merck, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Chris Schott views the acceptance of the Keytruda plus chemo combo supplementary Biologics License Application for priority review as a "distinct positive" for Merck (MRK). The company is increasingly well positioned in first-line lung cancer, Schott tells investors in a research note. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Merck.

Goldman sees Merck advantage for Keytruda in first-line NSCLC to be short-lived
Goldman Sachs analyst Jami Rubin said that if Merck's (MRK) chemo combo sBLA is approved, she would expect a "rapid uptake" for Keytruda in the first-line setting given there will be no requirement for PD-L1 testing. However, while Merck may benefit in the near-term in 2017, she is making no change to her 2018 estimates given imminent competition from potentially three other players, adding that she is also making no changes to her estimates for Bristol-Myers (BMY) as she has estimates for first-line non-small cell lung cancer only from 2018. Rubin maintains her Neutral rating and $70 price target on Merck shares.
