Gilead's long-term position in oncology unclear, says Needham
Needham analyst Alan Carr says that while the acquisition of Kite Pharma (KITE) creates an opportunity for Gilead Sciences (GILD) to become an important player in oncology, there is enough uncertainty around the technology and the competitive landscape such that it is unclear whether Gilead will emerge a long-term leader in the space. The analyst keeps a Hold rating on Gilead shares.

Wells Fargo sees little chance of higher bid for Kite Pharma
The price paid by Gilead Sciences (GILD) "more than adequately" reflects potential value from Kite Pharma's (KITE) AxiCel and adoptive cellular therapy pipeline, Wells Fargo analyst Jim Birchenough tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees "little chance" of a higher offer or a price bump by Gilead. He raised his price target for Kite shares to $180 and keeps a Market Perform rating on the name. The stock in afternoon trading is just below Gilead's $180 per share takeover offer at $178.12. The shares are up 28% on the day, or $39.02.

Juno Therapeutics upgraded on Kite deal at Wedbush
As noted earlier, Wedbush upgraded Juno (JUNO) to Outperform from Neutral. Analyst David Nierengarten,upgraded Juno following Gilead's (GILD) proposed acquisition of Kite Pharma (KITE). The analyst believes the acquisition serves as validation for the CAR-T cell therapy space and thinks the deal will enhance the awareness of and infrastructure supporting CAR-T therapies by the time Juno's JCAR017 hits the market in late 2018/early 2019. Nierengarten estimates that Juno's pipeline in hematologic malignancies will generate peak U.S. sales of $2B. Target to $42 from $24.
