Expert IPF call positive for FibroGen, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Michael Yee says his call with two idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis experts was net positive for FibroGen (FGEN). Based on the available data, the experts estimated a 30%-40%-plus probability of success in Phase 3 for the company. The experts were "more conservative in the interpretation" of the data reported by Galapagos NV (GLPG), Yee tells investors in a research note. He reiterates a Buy rating on FibroGen given the "underappreciated value" for FG-3019 in IPF.

FibroGen price target raised to $65 from $48 at Citi
Citi analyst Joel Beatty raised his price target for FibroGen to $65 after the company's Phase 2 trial of Pamrevlumab in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis met its primary endpoint. The monotherapy benefit appears comparable to the two approved IPF drugs, which is encouraging, Beatty tells investors in a research note. He increased his probability of success for Pamrevlumab in IPF to 65% from 20%. FibroGen continues to be the analyst's top pick.

Regeneron asthma treatment still looks better than Amgen's, says Citi
Citi analyst Robyn Karnauskas says that while Amgen's (AMGN) and AstraZeneca's (AZN) asthma data is encouraging, Regeneron's (REGN) dupilumab appears to have better lung function profile in cross trial comparison. On a key endpoint of lung function improvement, Amgen's Tezepelumab does not appear to be providing a lot of benefit, Karnauskas tells investors in a research note. She notes that dupilumab in its phase 3 trial showed 12% improvement on lung function. Regeneron's asthma drug "is ahead and potentially better," Karnauskas writes. She keeps a Buy rating on Regeneron with a $575 price target.

As noted earlier, BMO Capital started coverage of AstraZeneca with a $38 price target and an Outperform rating. Analyst Alex Arfaei is upbeat on the company's strategy and predicts that its EPS will rise at a compound annual growth rate of 15% between 2017 and 2022. Arfaei expects the company's growth to be driven by its oncology franchise, and he believes that the franchise will drive its margins higher.

Regeneron selloff today a buying opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff notes shares of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) are trading lower after Phase IIb readouts from competitors Amgen (AMGN) and AstraZeneca (AZN) in asthma and AbbVie (ABBV) in atopic dermatitis met their primary endpoints. The analyst does not see an "immediate competitive threat" to Regeneron's Dupixent, which he says has successfully launched in atopic dermatitis following FDA approval in March. He recommends buying the shares on today's selloff ahead of expected "positive" Phase III Dupixent asthma data. Dupixent maintains at least a two-year lead ahead of these competitive agents, Tenthoff tells investors in an intraday research note. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Regeneron with a $557 price target.
