Global Blood Therapeutics coverage assumed with an Outperform at Wedbush

Wedbush analyst Liana Moussatos says that Global Blood Therapeutics' (GBT) GBT440 drug can become the standard of care for sickle cell disease, and he thinks that the stock has not risen adequately following speculation that the company had been approached by Novo Nordisk(NVO) about a takeover. The analyst thinks that the company could be acquired for $73-$87 per share, versus its current price of around $37. Target $73.

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Guggenheim analyst Robert Cihra initiated Apple (AAPL) with a Buy rating and $140 price target, stating that while iPhones have slowed to now being cyclical he thinks the company can stay a step ahead of commoditization by maintaining its lead in software with iOS and processing with the Ax chip. 2. JPMorgan analyst Cory Kasimov started Global Blood Therapeutics (GBT) with an Overweight rating and $25 price target. If successful, the company's GBT440 would be the first new sickle cell disease therapy approved in two decades, Kasimov tells investors. 3. Needham analyst Laura Martin initiated Priceline (PCLN) with a Buy and a $1,800 price target due to its market lading position, history of execution, and OTA ecosystem competitive advantages. 4. Canaccord analyst Richard Close initiated Teladoc (TDOC) with a Buy rating and $24 price target. Close said Teladoc is the first mover, industry leader and the only publicly traded telemedicine company. 5. Guggenheim analyst Robert Cihra initiated Tesla (TSLA) with a Buy rating and $280 price target, as he acknowledges it faces a number of risks but also has "nearly open-ended growth disrupting the trillion-dollar auto market." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

If successful, the company's GBT440 would be the first new sickle cell disease therapy approved in two decades, Kasimov tells investors in a research note. He's "encouraged" by the Phase 1/2 data to date and thinks the recent share selloff creates a long-term buying opportunity.

European Pharma raised to Positive from Neutral at Barclays
Barclays analyst Emmanuel Papadakis rolled out coverage of the European Pharmaceuticals space and upgraded his sector view to Positive from Neutral. The analyst has "high conviction that the recent transformational era of R&D innovation is set to continue," which he believes will allow the sector to retain pricing power. Papadakis put Overweight ratings on AstraZeneca (AZN), Roche (RHHBY) and Shire (SHPG), with Astra his top pick. The analyst put an Equal Weight rating on GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Underweight ratings on Sanofi (SNY), Novartis (NVS) and Novo Nordisk (NVO).
