Axovant Sciences upcoming results may drive valuation upside, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jay Olson notes that Axovant Sciences faces two substantial binary events including the Phase 3 MINDSET study results at the end of September and the Phase 2 HEADWAY study results in Q4. The combination of these two events could drive up to 100% valuation upside, he contends. Further, the analyst believes the company is positioned to deliver the first new symptomatic Alzheimer's Disease drug approved by the FDA in over a decade. Olson reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Outperform
Axovant Sciences price target raised to $30 from $26 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jay Olson raised his price target for Axovant Sciences to $30 after leaving a meeting with management "incrementally more positive." The analyst is "encouraged" by management's vision which he says extends beyond dementia into other areas of high unmet need within neurology. He believes the focus on dementia with Lewy bodies and Lewy body dementia, which includes Parkinson's disease dementia, could "create significant value for shareholders." Olson sees a favorable risk/reward profile for intepirdine in the Phase 3 Mindset study with top-line results due in late September. He keeps an Outperform rating on Axovant.

Jefferies sees Axovant shares hitting $5 or $90 on Sept. data
Jefferies analyst Biren Amin last week hosted investor meetings with Axovant Sciences' incoming CEO David Hung and Vivek Ramaswamy, who is transitioning to CEO of privately held Roivant. He notes the stock is up 45% since the announcement. "This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard," Hung said of the investor theory that he believes intepirdine will fail, Amin tells investors in a research note. It seems Axovant's profile fit what Hung was looking for and he conducted extensive due diligence on both intepirdine and nelotanserin, the analyst writes. He adds that the new CEO believes both products, in aggregate, offer five opportunities for value creation. Regarding the late September Phase III readout for intepirdine in mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease, Amin believes Axovant shares could trade to $80-$90 with strong improvement on the Alzheimer's disease assessment scale, or ADS-cog, of 1.5 point at 24 weeks and positive ADCS-adl, or Alzheimer's disease cooperative study - activities of daily living outcome. With a more moderate outcome where ADS-cog ranges between 0.7 and 1.3 point improvement and ADCS-adl does not achieve statistical significance, the analyst thinks the shares could still range higher to $45-$50. If the Mindset trial fails, he thinks the shares could drop to $5. Axovant closed Thursday up $2.20 to $22.

Charter offer would likely have to be at least $500 per share, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick believes SoftBank (SFTBY) is one of the few companies that could offer a big enough price to take control of Charter Communications (CHTR). While a deal is not very likely, Softbank Chairman Masayoshi Son "is never to be counted out as a buyer," Cusick tells investors in a research note. He believes a Charter acquisition offer would likely have to be in the $500 per share or higher range. Charter shares in premarket trading are up $31.74 to $402 after the Wall Street Journal reported Friday night that SoftBank has interest in merging the company with Sprint. Cusick estimates annual synergies between Sprint (S) and Charter could be around $2B, with minimal cost to integrate versus a Sprint and T-Mobile (TMUS) merger "which would have more eventual cost savings but cost much more to integrate." A Sprint and Charter deal would not have a difficult regulatory review, the analyst believes. Cusick adds that if Charter looked like it was going to sell to Softbank, Comcast (CMCSA) would have to decide if it ever did want to buy Charter and "move more quickly with an even bigger premium."

JPMorgan says odds of T-Mobile, Sprint merger have 'increased dramatically'
JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick believes T-Mobile (TMUS), Sprint (S) and DISH (DISH) are in play and that a combination of any of them could happen. In addition, each of the three companies could become targets for larger wireless players, domestic cable companies, Internet giants and foreign buyers, Cusick tells investors in a research note. He thinks the likelihood for a Sprint and T-Mobile tie-up in the near term has "increased dramatically" since September, from 10% to over 35%, including now a greater than 50% chance of announcement and 70% chance of approval if announced. Parents Softbank (SFTBY) and Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) have increased their preference for a deal in the last six months and that the value of $5B of annual synergies "is enough to smooth over most disagreements on relative value," Cusick contends. He sees the most likely case as Sprint/Softbank buying T-Mobile, but feels a more even merger or even Deutsche Telekom/T-Mobile paying a premium to retain a majority of the combined company is possible.

SoftBank downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Peter Milliken downgraded Softbank (SFTBY) to Hold saying the company's rebuilding efforts should take time. The analyst expects the stock to trade largely in line with Alibaba (BABA), Sprint (S) and the yen over the next 12 months, and he feels much of the upside has already been realized in the first two.
