Large cap pharma could benefit from upcoming executive order, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that, based on press reports, large cap pharma could benefit from President Trump's upcoming executive order on drug pricing. The firm says the articles indicate that the order will not create major reforms or do anything to lower consumers' costs or solve current pricing issues. Publicly traded companies in the space include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).

Kite Pharma has significant manufacturing advantage over peers, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst John Newman said Kite Pharma (KITE) has a quicker turnaround time for its axi-cel CART therapy for DLBCL versus its competition, which should translate into a commercial advantage for them. The meaningful manufacturing capability gives it a clear advantage over competitor Novartis (NVS), said Newman, who reiterated his Buy rating and raised his price target to $115 from $90 on Kite shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Oracle (ORCL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Joseph Bonner saying the company's fourth quarter results show that its cloud business is already having "some success." 2. RH (RH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank analyst Adam Sindler saying he believes there will be less revenue pull forward from its current inventory correction actions than is expected and he thinks the company, and the bulls, will continue to buy shares on any pull back, driving down its share count. Sindler raised his price target on the parent of Restoration Hardware to $66 from $45. 3. Novartis (NVS) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Emmanuel Papadakis citing better than expected CANTOS results. 4. AK Steel (AKS) and U.S. Steel (X) were upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank, while Century Aluminum (CENX) was upgraded to Hold from Sell. 5. Vertex (VRTX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham with analyst Alan Carr saying he predicts Vertex will identify at least one safe and effective triple regimen for commercial launch by the end of 2020. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

PRA Health upgraded to Outperform at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Erin Wilson Wright upgraded PRA Health (PRAH) to Outperform from Neutral on greater enthusiasm for the company's recent partnership with Takeda (TKPYY), an incrementally more positive outlook for the broader functional outsourcing market, and relatively healthy CRO industry fundamentals. The analyst also raised her price target on PRA Health's shares to $67 from $50.

Exelixis down with licensing deal seen as impacting takeover potential
Shares of Exelixis (EXEL) are moving lower after the company last night announced a licensing agreement for the commercialization and further clinical development in Japan of cabozantinib, its oncology medicine, with Takeda Pharmaceutical (TKPYY). Deutsche Bank analyst Andrew Peters said earlier today that while Exelixis' licensing agreement is "clearly encouraging" and highlights the value of cabozantinib, the news could impact "near-term expectations regarding strategic activity, as Japanese rights would be similarly valuable to maintain." Exelixis is down 4%, or 66c, to $17.62 in afternoon trading, a sign that the deal with Takeda could be dampening investor expectations of a buyout in the near-term. The company maintaining the U.S. rights is key, Peters told investors in a research note, adding that the U.S. is core to the valuation and the company's strategic positioning. The analyst has a Buy rating on Exelixis with a $20 price target.

Array BioPharma strength likely aided by M&A speculation, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff noted that Array BioPharma (ARRY) shares hit a 52-week high during Friday's trading, which he attributes to M&A speculation following Ariad's (ARIA) agreement to be acquired by Takeda (TKPYY). Tenthoff, who sees several business development opportunities for Array, reiterates his Overweight rating and $15 price target on the shares.
