Vertex to present 11 abstracts from CF R&D program at NACFC

Vertex Pharmaceuticals announced that 11 abstracts from its cystic fibrosis research and development program will be presented at the annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference in Indianapolis, November 2 to 4, 2017. Previously announced data from the Phase 3 EVOLVE and EXPAND studies of the investigational tezacaftor/ivacaftor combination in people with CF ages 12 and older who have certain mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator gene will be presented for the first time. Additionally, data from the Phase 3 extension study of ORKAMBI in children with CF ages 6 to 11 who have two copies of the F508del mutation and real-world KALYDECO data will be presented. The company also submitted an abstract for the late-breaking poster session with previously announced Phase 1 and Phase 2 data for three different next-generation correctors -- VX-440, VX-152 and VX-659 -- in triple combination regimens with tezacaftor and ivacaftor in people with CF who have one F508del mutation and one minimal function mutation and in people with two copies of the F508del mutation. Collectively, the data at the Conference demonstrate continued progress across the company's CF program goals of providing enhanced treatment options for more people, demonstrating the disease-modifying effects of CFTR modulators, and expanding CFTR treatment options to all people with CF through the development of new medicines.

Alexion, Celgene top picks at Leerink
Leerink analyst Geoffrey Porges notes large cap biotech stocks have performed strongly this year and have reversed some of the wide discount they were carrying compared to their history and to other medical products sectors. Further, he points out consensus revenue and earnings estimates for biotech companies have started to trend positively, after negative revisions earlier in the year. Porges still sees significant upside for many of the names in his coverage, and he anticipates that further appreciation can occur on the basis of recovering sentiment and multiples, further estimate revisions toward his current models, and confirmation of option value for unpriced pipeline opportunities. The analyst top picks are now Alexion (ALXN), Celgene (CELG), Regeneron (REGN), and Vertex (VRTX). Among his Market Perform rated stocks, his preference would be for AbbVie (ABBV).

Oppenheimer analyst Hartaj Singh raised his price target for Vertex to $175 from $150 following Q2 results and business update to investors.

Neutral
Vertex downgraded to Neutral on valuation after CF data jump at UBS
As previously reported, UBS analyst Carter Gould downgraded Vertex to Neutral from Buy, arguing that the valuation of its cystic fibrosis franchise appears "full" following the run-up in the stock on the heels of the company's data from Phase 1 and Phase 2 studies of three different triple combination regimen. Gould raised his price target on Vertex shares to $174 from $135, as he sees visibility for the CF franchise to approach $8B in revenue by the end of the 2020s.
