Piper lays out top BioPharma picks for 2017
Piper Jaffray analysts laid out their top BioPharma picks for 2017. Analyst Richard Purkiss favors Pfizer (PFE) and Eli Lilly (LLY) as his top large pharma picks. Analyst Joshua Schimmer calls Gilead (GILD) and Alexion (ALXN) his top large cap picks. Analyst David Amsellem names Horizon Pharma (HZNP) his top specialty pharma pick. Piper's other top Biopharma picks for 2017 include ACADIA (ACAD), Aimmune (AIMT), Akorn (AKRX), Alnylam (ALNY), Axovant Sciences (AXON), Cara Therapeutics (CARA), CoLucid Pharmaceuticals (CLCD), Eale Pharmaceuticals (EGRX), Exelixis (EXEL), Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS), Mallinckrodt (MNK), Neurocrine (NBIX), Nektar (NKTR), Otonomy (OTIC), Reata Pharmaceuticals (RETA), Rigel Pharmaceuticals (RIGL), Ignyta (RXDX), Theravance Biopharma (TBPH), Versartis (VSAR) and Voyager Therapeutics (VYGR). The analysts look for recent momentum in BioPharma to continue in 2017. They believe innovation and potentially repatriation should lead to increased merger activity.

Janney sees pricing, rising rates as biotech headwinds in 2017
Janney Capital analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay noted that, on a relative basis vs. the Nasdaq, 2016 was the worst year for the Nasdaq biotechnology index (NBI) since 1994 and he believes the "outlook for 2017 isn't particularly rosy" given structural challenges for the sector along with rising interest rates. He cautions about overenthusiasm on M&A, as Chattopadhyay thinks "cash rich pharma may choose to return cash to shareholders through increased buybacks and dividends," and he believes "M&A, if any, is likely to lead to short-term relief rallies and may not represent a broader turn in sentiment." Meanwhile, broader discussion on healthcare spending and regulatory changes are likely to be bigger drivers of biotech sentiment during 2017 than M&A, said Chattopadhyay, who listed bluebird bio (BLUE), Galapagos NV (GLPG), Vertex (VRTX), Clovis (CLVS) and Nektar (NKTR) as on the firm's 2017 biotechnology focus list.

Celgene acquisition highlights underappreciated Nektar asset, says Piper Jaffray
After Celgene (CELG) announced this morning a deal to acquire Delinia for $300M plus up to $475M in potential milestones, Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer noted that the company's lead asset, DEL106, being developed for autoimmune disorders, is similar to Nektar's (NKTR) NKTR-358. While many investors are familiar with Nektar's immune-oncology program, NKTR-214, far fewer are familiar with NKTR-358, though both represent potential blockbuster opportunities if successful, Schimmer tells investors. He keeps an Overweight rating on Nektar, which he identifies as one of his top mid-cap picks.
