J&J verdict likely to increase attention on lawsuits, says Credit Suisse

After a Missouri jury on Thursday ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $4.69B to 22 women who alleged the company's talc-based products, including its baby powder, contain asbestos and caused them to develop ovarian cancer, Credit Suisse analyst Vamil Divan said the large number of ongoing litigations are gaining the attention of investors and is not expected to slow. Given the number of cases related to both talc and mesh and the size of the potential verdicts, Divan says it is "challenging" to put reasonable ranges on what J&J's ultimate liability may end up being, though he notes that J&J has been able to overturn many of the cases and has appealed all of the unfavorable verdicts. Divan maintains an Outperform rating and $151 price target.

Johnson & Johnson price target lowered to $143 from $155 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Glenn Novarro lowered his price target on Johnson & Johnson to $143 ahead of its Q2 results, saying the trends in the U.S. prescription drug market suggest that any upside in the company's Pharmaceutical segment is unlikely. Novarro expects the management to affirm its FY18 guidance for operational growth and earnings, but warns that the revenue guidance may see a downgrade due to the recent USD strength. The analyst also lowered his FY18 revenue projections to $81.1B from $81.3B and FY19 forecast to $80.6B from $83.0B.

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).

Johnson & Johnson upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Jami Rubin upgraded Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) to Neutral with an unchanged price target of $134. The shares closed yesterday down $1.11 to $126.24. The stock is down 10% year-to-date and 15% from its recent all-time high of $148, Rubin tells investors in a research note. She notes J&J is trading in line with the large cap Pharmaceuticals group at 15 times 2019 estimates. The company's non-operational earnings revisions are now better understood by investors at current share levels, Rubin contends. The analyst this morning also downgraded Perrigo (PRGO) to Sell from Neutral.
