Overweight
Sogou initiated with an Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Alex Yao started Sogou with an Overweight rating and $17 price target. The company is the fastest growing search engine globally, and can accelerate traffic share and earnings growth through its Tencent-WeChat partnership, the analyst contends.

Antares CRL doesn't raise issues for Amag Pharmaceuticals, says Janney Capital
Janney Capital analyst Ken Trbovich noted that the FDA complete response letter issued to Antares (ATRS) for Xyosted did not pertain to the Quickshot subcutaneous autoinjector, which raises his confidence the FDA will not identify such issues as a short coming of the sNDA for Amag Pharmaceuticals' (AMAG) Makena SQ. However, he keeps a Neutral rating on Amag shares, noting that the primary uncertainty for the sNDA for Makena SQ is the fact that its peak plasma levels is higher than the upper bound the FDA uses to define bioequivalence.

Piper calls Amag's Makena write-down a 'head-scratcher'
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond calls Amag Pharmaceuticals' $319M Makena-related intangible asset write-down a "head-scratcher." The write-down indicates a deteriorating long-term view of the franchise, Raymond tells investors in a research note. The analyst, who admits he still doesn't understand the logic behind the move, lowered his price target for Amag shares to $16 from $18. He keeps a Neutral rating on the name.

Buy
Amag Pharmaceuticals price target lowered to $16 from $34 at Jefferies

Akebia recent selloff not based on fundamentals, says H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Ed Arce notes that since the close on November 8, shares of FibroGen (FGEN) are down 17% while Akebia Therapeutics (AKBA) is down 21.3%. He attributes some of the weakness to FibroGen's Q3 earnings call, in which concerns arose that cardiovascular events in the large Phase 3 roxadustat cardiovascular outcomes trials are accruing too slowly. The analyst believes this has no fundamental bearing on Akebia or vadadustat, however. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $24 price target.
