Ionis Pharmaceuticals downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst Salveen Richter downgraded Ionis Pharmaceuticals to Sell and lowered its price target to $25 from $28. The analyst commented Ionis has a "lackluster" track record of developing successful drugs and ongoing toxicity across multiple drugs. If volanesorsen is approved for FCS, Richter expects safety/compliance issues and the launch focus on specialists will result in limited returns, similar to drug Kynamro for high cholesterol.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dollar General (DG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with the firm's analyst saying the environment has become more difficult since the bullish analyst day last spring. The firm's analyst said shares do not appear to fully factor in sales and margin challenges and sees risk to Street expectations. 2. MEDNAX (MD) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor citing valuation following the recent rally in the shares. The analyst says he can't with confidence bump up his $69 price target given the multi-year slowdown of organic growth and its high Medicaid payor exposure. 3. Loxo Oncology (LOXO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Yigal Nochomovitz saying the stock is now fairly valued. The reflect the equity financing in January which expanded the share count and rising R&D spend, the analyst cut his price target for the shares to $45 from $49. He believes, however, that Loxo management is executing the business plan well. 4. Kimberly-Clark (KMB) downgraded to Hold on competition, valuation at Societe Generale with analyst Iain Simpson saying price competition in the U.S. has picked up as P&G is becoming more aggressive with its mid-tier Luvs and competition in Brazil and China remains "tough." The analyst expects cost cutting to drive margins and views cash returns as "robust," but said valuation has caught up with fundamentals. 5. Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Salveen Richter saying Ionis has a "lackluster" track record of developing successful drugs and ongoing toxicity across multiple drugs. If volanesorsen is approved for FCS, Richter expects safety/compliance issues and the launch focus on specialists will result in limited returns, similar to drug Kynamro for high cholesterol.

Ionis Pharma should be bought after negative note, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo recommends that investors buy Ionis "ahead of multiple upcoming value drivers" Although another firm on Friday called Ionis' antisense platform a "mirage," that has not realized value, four products that use the platform have been approved, and analysts expect the company to generate $440M in revenue this year, Wells stated. The firm thinks that the company's results can beat expectations.

AveXis price target raised to $108 on higher confidence in AVXS-101 at Goldman
After AveXis (AVXS) reported results for its Phase 1 study of AVXS-101 in spinal muscular atrophy, Goldman Sachs analyst Salveen Richter said data for the treatment continues to impress and increased his probability of success for the drug to 85% from 65% previously. The analyst, who views AVXS-101 as a key competitive threat to Biogen (BIIB) and Ionis' (IONS) Spinraza as the potential first-line treatment for SMA, raised his price target on AveXis to $108 from $91 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
