Piper says own Versartis into Phase III data later this month
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff recommends owning shares of Versartis into the Phase III Velocity data on somavaratan in pediatric growth hormone deficiency due by the end of September. The analyst continues to expect somavaratan to demonstrate non-inferior height velocity within the 2cm lower confidence interval to daily growth hormone at one year. Even if somavaratan produces numerically lower height velocity to daily growth hormone, this would be a win since less frequent dosing should result in higher real-world compliance and growth, Tenthoff tells investors in a research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on Versartis with a $26 price target.

Ascendis shares could move 20% on Versartis data, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Joseph Schwartz believes shares of Ascendis Pharma (ASND) could move up or down 20% on Versartis' (VSAR) somavaratan data in September. The data may have important read-through for Ascendis since it may indicate how much of the long-acting growth hormone market TransCon hGH will need to compete for. The analyst notes his base case scenario has Ascendis shares remaining flat or trading slightly down on somavaratan efficacy, which is "noninferior to daily Genotropin and safety which is acceptable." Schwartz reiterates a Market Perform rating on Ascendis with a $28 price target.

Piper a buyer of Versartis ahead of September data
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff says he's a buyer of Versartis shares ahead of the Phase III Velocity data on somavartan in pediatric growth hormone deficiency expected in September. The analyst is "confident" somavaratan will meet the primary endpoint of non-inferior height velocity at 12 months based on Phase II Vista data that showed consistent HV out to three years. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $26 price target.
