Ligand downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank analyst Esther Rajavelu downgraded Ligand Pharmaceuticals to Sell saying the stock "is ahead of itself" at current levels. With 67% of its partnered pipeline in pre-clinical/Phase 1 development, and no potential blockbuster launch in the next 12 months, Ligand "presents potential downside risk when viewed through a one-year lens," Rajavelu tells investors in a research note. The analyst raised her price target for the shares to $105 from $104. Ligand closed Friday down $1.40 to $140.31.
