The news is another negative for Valeant, which is about to launch its own psoriasis treatment, Siliq, in the second half of 2017, Maris tells investors in a research note. With Talz from Eli Lilly (LLY), Humira from AbbVie (ABBV), Cosentyx from Novartis (NVS) and now J&J as a new competitor, Valeant is unlikely to be competitive in the psoriasis market, Maris contends. He believes his peak sales estimate of $250M for Siliq may prove optimistic given the competition. Maris an Underperform rating on Valeant with a $9 price target.

At a "reasonable acquisition premium," Gilead could pay $173-$187 per share for Incyte and its earnings would be diluted through 2018, but thereafter would be increased by such a deal, estimated Porges.

Amgen downgraded on valuation lack of near-term catalysts at BMO Capital
As noted earlier, BMO Capital downgraded Amgen to Market Perform from Outperform. Analyst M. Ian Somaiya downgraded the stock based on valuation and his belief that American College of Cardiology guidelines probably won't be updated until late 2018, likely preventing a positive turning point in Repatha sales until 2019. Target $199.

Puma selloff today brings buying opportunity, says Leerink
Puma Biotechnology shares are down 11% after the company announced last night that its lead product Nerlyx is commercially available by prescription in the United States. Puma has frequently been discussed as a potential takeover target, and some investors associate the availability of Nerylyx negatively with respect to the sales prospects of the company, Leerink analyst Michael Schmidt tells investors in an intraday research note. He says that while a potential buyout could yield near-term upside of 50%-75%, the timing of acquisitions are always difficult to predict accurately. Schmidt's thesis on the shares is based on underlying fundamentals, which he views as "compelling." The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Puma and recommends buying the stock on today's selloff. The shares in midday trading are down 11%, or $10.22, to $84.83.

Puma 'soft launch' of Nerlynx underway, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Cory Kasimov says Puma Biotechnology management clarified to him that Nerlynx is now available via a "soft launch" with the full promotional launch still expected in September. Last night's announcement was triggered by "post approval inbound interest to multiple people within the company for access to the product," Kasimov tells investors in a research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on shares of Puma.
