UPGRADE

Neutral
AstraZeneca upgraded to Neutral at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Rebekah Harper upgraded AstraZeneca to Neutral from Underperform after the company reported surprise positive headline results from the Phase 3 PACIFIC trial for Imfinzi in stage 3 unresectable lung cancer in all-comers, with positive progression free survival data. The analyst believes that AstraZeneca is in a "unique position" with this indication, with a likely two to three years lead versus competitors, as other P3s are not due until 2020+. Harper expects U.S. approval for AstraZeneca in this indication before the end of 2017.

GlaxoSmithKline possible move to buyout Novartis stake makes sense, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez is not surprised by the news that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) may buyout Novartis' (NVS) 36.5% stake in its Consumer Healthcare joint venture through a GBP8B deal sooner rather than later. The analyst believes this buyout could be beneficial as the infusion of additional cash from the buyout could bolster Novartis appetite for large scale M&A, including companies such as AstraZeneca (AZN) whose immune-oncology assets could complement its small-molecule focused oncology portfolio, according to the London Times.

Outperform
AstraZeneca price target raised to $36 from $33 at Leerink
Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez raised his price target for AstraZeneca to $36 after hosting a call with a lung cancer specialist. The specialist believes that once approved, the uptake of AstraZeneca's Imfinzi in Stage III unresectable non-small cell lung cancer will be "significant" given the poor outcomes and general lack of an effective treatment standard in this setting, Fernandez tells investors in a research note. The analyst raised his peak worldwide forecasts for the drug by $1B and keeps an Outperform rating on AstraZeneca.

Overweight
Clovis upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Cory Kasimov upgraded Clovis Oncology (CLVS) to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $72 from $58. The stock closed yesterday up 2%, or $1.05, to $49.56. The shares are down 35% over the last two months for "no clear fundamental reason," Kasimov tells investors in a research note. The analyst is "increasingly comfortable" recommending Clovis ahead of its Phase 3 study evaluating Rubraca in maintenance ovarian cancer now that more PARP class data has emerged. He has not seen "convincing evidence" that there is a clear efficacy difference between Clovis' rucaparib, Tesaro's (TSRO) niraparib and AstraZeneca's (AZN) olaparib.
