Court rules Merck can be sued for generic drug injury, Reuters reports

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled that Merck and other brand name drug makers can be sued over injuries sustained on generic versions of its drugs if it failed to update warning labels, according to Reuters. Merck was originally sued because a 2011 Supreme Court decision prevents generic drug companies from being sued for inadequate warning labels.Reference Link

Leerink ups Heron Therapeutics target to $29 after competitor setback
Leerink analyst Ami Fadia raised her price target for Heron Therapeutics (HRTX) to $29 from $27 after Tesaro (TSRO) announced earlier this week that it has withdrawn all promotional support for IV Varubi, based on numerous reports of anaphylaxis. Heron's Cinvanti, Tesaro's Varubi and Merck's (MRK) Emend are the only three branded NK-1 antagonists in the market today for chemo induced nausea and vomiting, Fadia tells investors in a research note. With Emend expected to go generic soon, Cinvanti will be the sole marketed branded agent, the analyst adds. She increased her 2023 estimate for Cinvanti from $150M to just under $200M and keeps an Outperform rating on Heron Therapeutics. The analyst continues to see upside for the stock ahead of the two Phase 3 trials for HTX-011 expected to read out in Q2.

Leerink upgrades Merck to Outperform ahead of KN-189 presentation
Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez upgraded Merck (MRK) to Outperform from Market Perform with an unchanged price target of $66. The shares closed Friday up 38c to $55.14. Keytruda will continue to dominate the first-line non-small cell lung cancer market, Fernandez tells investors in a research note. Following his firm's lung cancer survey, the analyst believes Merck will deliver upside to consensus Keytruda estimates along with positive earnings leverage in the second half of 2018 and 2019. He thinks KN-189 likely will show a clinically meaningful overall survival benefit for the Keytruda plus chemo combo in all patients, including a strong benefit in patients with moderate or low PD-L1 biomarker levels. Fernandez does not believe Bristol-Myers' (BMY) Opdivo and Yervoy combo will supplant Keytruda as the market leader. The analyst thinks now is the time to own shares of Merck.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Time Warner (TWX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst John Hodulik saying while he expects the takeover by AT&T (T) to receive regulatory approval, he believes the current environment would make Time Warner's assets "highly attractive" to other media companies and Internet-based competitors were the deal to be blocked. 2. Carlyle Group (CG) and Apollo Global (APO) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. 3. Merck (MRK) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Leerink with analyst Seamus Fernandez saying Keytruda will continue to dominate the first-line non-small cell lung cancer market. 4. SAP (SAP) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Stewart Materne III saying that he believes the risk/reward is more attractive at current levels following the stock's 6% pullback. 5. Aratana Therapeutics (PETX) upgraded to Buy on valuation at CL King with the firm citing favorable risk/reward. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
