FBR sees 'prime' merger environment for biotechs under Trump
Potential tax reform and FDA policy changes under President Trump could "prime the pump" for acquisitions of clinical-stage biotech companies by Big Pharma, FBR Capital analysts led by Chris Meekins tell investors in a research note. These police moves, coupled with the repeal of some taxes associated with the Affordable Care Act, are likely to increase funds for companies looking to make acquisitions, the analysts contend. Within its coverage universe, FBR sees TESARO (TSRO), Agile Therapeutics (AGRX), Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), Acceleron Pharma (XLRN), Abeona Therapeutics (ABEO), Aurinia Pharmaceuticals (AUPH), Geron (GERN) and Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) as "primary targets for those looking to make acquisitions."

Abeona Therapeutics price target raised to $14 from $8 at Maxim
Maxim analyst Jason McCarthy raised Abeona's price target to $14 from $8 saying he expects multiple data points across several gene therapy programs to potentially push shares higher. The analyst said clinical development is underway in Abeona's Sanfilippo with positive data in two patients so far, and data from more patients are expected this fall. The company is also advancing a second Sanfilippo gene therapy, ABO-101, into the clinic later this year. Also, Abeona has brought on board a more advanced gene therapy from Stanford University, EB-101, to treat a rare skin disease which demonstrated positive data in five patients and has advanced to phase II, McCarthy wrote.

Abeona short report 'factually incorrect and misleading,' says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Elemer Piros said the short report published on Seeking Alpha regarding Abeona Therapeutics is "factually incorrect and misleading." Abeona infuses its drug to the bloodstream, unlike Lysogene, whose failed clinical trial was conducted with a gene therapy that was directly injected into a handful of brain regions, Piros points out. Abeona also employs an AAV9 vector, which "delivers and promotes expression" in both neurons and glial cells, according to Piros, who reiterates his Buy rating and $21 price target on Abeona shares.

Dominion allows isobutanol option with Intrexon to expire, says JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Jason Butler said that Intrexon (XON) management confirmed in conversations with him yesterday after the markets closed that Dominion (D) allowed its option with Intrexon Energy Partners for isobutanol production facilities in North America to expire without opting in. While "somewhat disappointing," Butler said he remains confident that Intrexon and the IEP joint venture, which was formed with undisclosed investors that do not include Dominion, are making progress and Dominion's decision should not impact IEP's ability to continue advancing its efforts toward commercial production. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $42 price target on Intrexon shares.
