Novartis prevails in Gilenya patent challenge brought by Teva and Apotex

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Trial and Appeal Board wrote that petitioners Apotex, Teva (TEVA) and Sun Pharmaceutical failed to show, by a preponderance of the evidence, that claims 1-6 of U.S. Patent No. US 9,187,405 held by Novartis (NVS) related to its Gilenya are unpatentable, according to a decision dated July 11 that was posted to the USPTO site.

Drug stocks may not react favorably to Pfizer price rollback, Trump tweets, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst David Maris notes that there was widespread media coverage of drug price increases taken recently by several large cap drug companies, with President Trump criticizing Pfizer (PFE) for taking these price increases. On Tuesday, Pfizer confirmed it was rolling back its July drug price increases following a conversation with President Trump, he adds. Maris believes that drug stocks will not react favorably to this news, given the chilling effect this will likely have on others looking to take price increases. Nonetheless, the analyst points out that the price increases taken in July are only a small number of increases taken over the past year or several years, so the impact of the rollback to the healthcare system is insignificant in the big picture. Other publicly traded companies in the space include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).

Cryoport price target raised to $22 from $12.50 at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Richard Baldry raised his price target for Cryoport (CYRX) to $22 from $12.50 while reiterating a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst notes that the European Medicines Agency recommended "marketing authorizations" for therapies developed by two of Cryoport's clients, Gilead's (GILD) Yescarta and Novartis' (NVS) Kymriah. Baldry believes these two approvals roughly double the addressable market for the therapies and offer upside potential to our 2019 forecasts.

Adamis price target raised to $10 from $7 at H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Jason Kolbert raised his price target for Adamis Pharmaceuticals (ADMP) to $10 after the company announced that Novartis (NVS) division Sandoz division will commercialize Symjepi. While the deal took longer than expected, the terms of a 50:50 split is better than anticipated, Kolbert tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees Sandoz as a "great partner" and reiterates a Buy rating on Adamis.

Perrigo downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Jami Rubin downgraded Perrigo (PRGO) to Sell and lowered her price target for the shares to $74 from $78. The analyst sees "no meaningful risk" to estimates but expects the "business to drift" due to a lack of meaningful new launches in the pipeline. The market may also attribute a lower multiple to Perrigo's consumer business as rates rise, which creates downside risk to the equity, Rubin tells investors in a research note. She sees more upside in other stocks, namely Mylan (MYL) and Teva (TEVA).

Teva added to CIti's US Focus List with 'favorable' risk-reward profile
Citi analyst Liav Abraham added Teva to his US Focus List, telling investors in a research note that he continues to see a "favorable" risk-reward profile and that the stock benefits from the most clear and material upside to estimates among the stocks in his coverage universe. He views earnings upside as the most material driver of stock price performance for the specialty pharma sector over the near to medium term, "especially against a backdrop of fundamentals that appear to have stabilized." Looking ahead, Abraham sees a guidance raise along with Q2 earnings.

Teva price target raised to $28 from $25 at Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Jami Rubin raised Buy rated Teva's price target to $28 from $25 following meetings with management last week. The analyst said there has been a "stark shift" by interim management from being fairly reactionary and directionless to now being a company led by leaders who are "action-oriented" with a rapid and clear path to recovery. Rubin said the discussions focused on progress on price cuts, deleveraging, stabilization of the US generics business, specialty opportunities, and the next chapter of growth expected in 2020. The analyst believes guidance is likely to be revised higher as Copaxone has show to be more durable despite generic competition and US generics have stabilized and guidance still assumes ProAir competition this year. Further, Rubin sees upside potential from Austedo and Fremanezumab that could drive EBITDA upside and cash flow for faster debt repayment.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Francesca's (FRAN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Susan Anderson saying she has increased confidence in the company's turnaround following meetings with management. 2. Chevron (CVX) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Pavel Molchanov saying Chevron offers relatively more leverage than most peers to higher oil prices, which should reach cyclical highs over the next 6 to 12 months, while low WTI exposure maximizes earnings and free cash flow generation. 3. Trovagene (TROV) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Maxim with analyst Jason McCarthy citing the positive news from the company's lead drug candidate PCM-075 as well as its completion of a capital raise. 4. RBS (RBS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Investec. 5. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Wells Fargo with analyst David Maris citing a "positive meeting" with Teva's CEO Kundefinedre Schultz and CFO Mike McClellan in Israel.
