BioCryst upgraded on drug potential at JMP Securities
As noted earlier, JMP Securities upgraded BioCryst to Outperform from Market Perform. Analyst Liisa Bayko believes that a trial of the company's BCX7353 drug for hereditary angioedema could indicate that the drug is capable of "significantly reducing, and possibly wiping out attacks." Bayko adds that "there is significant enthusiasm in the community for an oral option that can achieve at least a 50% reduction in attack frequency." Bayko thinks that the program has a 40% chance of success and could represent a market opportunity of about $12.9B. Target $10.

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Salesforce (CRM) initiated with a Hold at Needham by analyst Scott Berg, who cites decelerating organic revenue growth, a looming sales reorganization, and an operating model not profitable enough at its revenue to drive valuation higher. 2. BioCryst (BCRX) initiated with a Buy at Ladenburg by analyst Christopher James, who thinks the company is poised to become a leading oral drug rare disease company. 3. Seaport Global analyst Josh Sullivan started CACI (CACI) International with a Buy rating and $140 price target. The company has broad exposure to trends in fiscal/defense spending, the analyst contends. 4. Citi analyst Walter Pritchard started OpenText (OTEX) with a Neutral rating and $36 price target, stating that the current valuation already reflects the potential of the ECD acquisition. 5. Albireo Pharma (ALBO) initiated with a Buy at Ladenburg. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
