New data from Assembly Biosciences look 'great,' says Jefferies

Assembly Biosciences presented this morning positive detailed results from its Phase IB study of oral ABI-H0731 in chronic hepatitis B patients, Jefferies analyst Michael Yee tells investors in a research note titled "New EASL Data Looks Great - Potent Efficacy Across HBV Populations - BUY." He believes the data show potent efficacy and dose response across hepatitis B patients as well as clean safety and tolerability. The analyst thinks Assembly "will increasingly be getting on the map" of big pharma and large biotech. The company remains an attractive takeover candidate for big companies in the anti-viral space as its drugs are "starting to play out," Yee contends. He keeps a Buy rating on Assembly Biosciences with a $75 price target.

Assembly Biosciences price target raised to $75 from $50 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Michael Yee raised his price target for Assembly Biosciences to $75 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst continues to like Assembly as a top smid-cap biotech idea given "emerging promising data" for core protein inhibitors in Hepatitis B, its "own strong and growing" pipeline with data catalysts this year, and "significant" market opportunity. Further, the analyst sees the company's $120M cash position as sufficient to move beyond 2018 and fund large Phase II studies.

Assembly Biosciences offers 'compelling' upside opportunity, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Michael Yee says Assembly Biosciences offers a "compelling asymmetric upside opportunity" given the company's potential for a functional cure in a multi-billion dollar opportunity in Hepatitis B. The analyst thinks Assembly's upcoming Phase IB data should show "positive and potent" antiviral responses and clean safety, further de-risking the program into Phase II. Yee keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $50 price target.
