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).

PTAB decision on Gilenya positive for Celgene, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond expects the market to react positively with respect to Celgene (CELG) shares, at least initially, following the Patent Trial and Appeal Board decision regarding ozanimod competitor Gilenya from Novartis (NVS). Yesterday, the PTAB issued a decision that upholds validity of Gilenya's dosing patent in response to inter partes review petitions from multiple generic filers, Raymond tells investors in a research note. While this decision will likely be appealed, it opens up the possibility for Gilenya intellectual property runway out to 2027, when the dosing patent expire, the analyst adds. Raymond believes that not having a generic S1P class at launch for ozanimod is positive for Celgene. However, without the removal of first dose monitoring, ozanimod is not likely to be differentiated enough to make a difference, the analyst says, citing physician feedback. He keeps a Neutral rating on Celgene with a $95 price target. The stock in early trading is up 2% to $84.92.

AvroBio initiated with an Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst David Lebowitz initiated AvroBio (AVRO) with an Overweight rating and $37 price target, noting that its a unique gene therapy company that has human clinical data for one of its programs at the time of its initial public offering. He points to Novartis' (NVS) recent acquisition of AveXis for $8.7B, or an 88% premium, as an illustration of the substantial interest in and valuation premium put into many names in the gene therapy space.

Novartis report has negative read through for Teva, Mylan, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst David Maris noted that Novartis (NVS) lowered its 2018 guidance for Sandoz along with its Q2 report and reportedly told Bloomberg that it would consider selling the generic drug unit. He sees a negative read through for companies with large U.S. commodity generic exposure, such as Teva (TEVA) and Mylan (MYL), from Novartis' report, Maris tells investors. He also noted that Novartis said it will not increase prices on its drugs in the U.S. for the rest of 2018, as Pfizer (PFE) recently has also said, calling this "a wise approach and correct read of the increasing intensity of the scrutiny around rising healthcare costs." Maris continues to expect the " chilling effect" on price increases to spread through the industry. Lastly, the analyst pointed out that the Amgen-partnered (AMGN) launch of Aimovig is off to a strong start, which he believes bodes well for Teva's fremanezumab and Eli Lilly's (LLY) galcanezumab.

uniQure pullback on Pfizer study unwarranted, says H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay notes that shares of uniQure (QURE) dropped 11% yesterday after Pfizer (PFE) initiated an "open-label, non-investigational product, multi-center, lead-in study to evaluate at least 6 months of prospective efficacy and selected safety data of factor IX prophylaxis replacement therapy in moderate to severe adult Hemophilia B subjects who are negative for neutralizing antibodies to adeno-associated virus vector-spark100". This has been potentially misconstrued as the initiation of the Phase 3 study, suggesting competitive threats for uniQure earlier than anticipated, Chattopadhyay tells investors in a research note. However, this is not to be mistaken as a gene therapy Phase 3 program, as there is no gene therapy treatment cohort, the analyst adds. Further, Chattopadhyay points out that Pfizer's observation study is expected to be completed during November of 2020, which he believes puts uniQure at least a year, if not more, ahead. In addition, the analyst continues to believe that Pfizer is likely to encounter intellectual property headwinds given uniQure's patent asset protecting both the mPadua gene cassette and its method of use to treat hemoglobinopathies. He views the selloff yesterday in shares of uniQure as unwarranted and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $42 price target.

Aclaris offers best risk/reward of hair loss players, says Cantor Fitzgerald
The potential for JAK inhibitors to treat alopecia areata may be underappreciated by investors because the Street does not appear to be ascribing enough value to the opportunity, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Louise Chen tells investors in a research note. Of the three companies she covers developing JAKs for hair loss, Aclaris Therapeutics (ACRS), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Pfizer (PFE), the analyst believes Aclaris offers the best risk/reward and greatest upside potential. The company has a market cap below $700M and two potential "shots on goal" for alopecia areata, Chen writes. She estimates combined peak sales of $1B-plus for both opportunities and keeps an Overweight rating on Aclaris. The physicians the analyst spoke to believe the company's JAKs for hair loss will work.

Piper maintains Overweight on Regeneron on tanezumab news
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond keeps an Overweight rating on Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) on news that tanezumab, Pfizer (PFE) and Eli Lilly's (LLY) anti-NGF antibody that is a competitor to Regeneron's fasinumab, successfully completed the first of several Phase 3 trials. Fasinumab remains an unmodeled opportunity, but the read-through from tanezumab is positive and the market for an effective, non-opioid chronic pain treatment is "massive," Raymond tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out that Regeneron and Teva (TEVA) still expect to report Phase 3 data starting later this year. Raymond keeps an Overweight rating on Regeneron with a $450 price target.
