Nektar price target raised to $25 from $17 at Jefferies

Jefferies analyst David Steinberg raised his price target for Nektar Therapeutics to $25 citing the "unexpected" Phase 3 success for NKTR-181. In a research note tiled "NKTR-181 Back From the Dead; Could Become a Major Product in Chronic Pain," Steinberg says the drug could become the company's largest and most profitable product since it directly addresses the "opioid epidemic." NKTR-181 could bring "significant value" to Nektar as early as 2020, the analyst contends. Steinberg adds that the company now fits his takeover thesis. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Nektar initiated with a Buy at BTIG
BTIG analyst Robert Hazlett started Nektar Therapeutics with a Buy rating and $22 price target. Several "intriguing" emerging therapeutics along with multiple near-term catalysts make the shares attractive, Hazlett tells investors in a research note.

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.

Nektar price target raised to $29 after opioid trial success at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said he thought prospects of success for NKTR-181 were very low after a failed Phase 2 study but he was "happy to be proven wrong" after the SUMMIT trial succeeded. A human abuse liability study will read-out around mid-2017, after which the company will meet with the FDA to discuss whether the package for NKTR-181 is adequate for filing, Schimmer noted. He raised his price target on Nektar shares to $29 from $25 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock, which he calls his "top mid-cap biotech stocks for other reasons," such as its multiple royalty streams from partnered products and its emerging immuno-oncology platform.

Roth Capital raises Nektar price target to $31 after 'impressive' opioid data
Roth Capital analyst Michael Higgins called Nektar's Phase 3 results for NKTR-181 "impressive" and said he expect management will now enter into negotiations to out-license the drug while meeting with the FDA. Higgins, who believes the drug is worth $2B by "conservatively" estimating its value at 3-4X peak sales, raised his price target on Nektar shares to $31 from $23 and reiterates a Buy rating on the stock.
