Roth Capital ups Madrigal price target to $400, examines possible M&A scenarios
Roth Capital analyst Yasmeen Rahimi noted that Madrigal Pharmaceuticals' (MDGL) "impressive" NASH resolution results published yesterday resulted in the stock's value being pushed up to make it the highest among "purely NASH" companies. Among large pharma companies, Rahimi believes those with the strongest metabolic franchises, large R&D teams, and sales forces focused on endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, and hepatologists likely have eyes on NASH assets, listing Merck (MRK), AstraZeneca (AZN), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Novo Nordisk (NVO) as examples. The historical acquisition price for NASH assets ranges from $200M to $1.7B, but Rahimi argues that Madrigal "can set the highest NASH price tag yet," estimating a potential takeout valuation of $5.6B. Rahimi raised her price target on Madrigal shares to $400 from $210 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

HHS 'smoke signals' worth noting for drugmakers, says Morgan Stanley
After HHS Secretary Alex Azar spoke at a two-hour Senate hearing, Morgan Stanley analyst David Risinger noted that Azar suggested that U.S. drug pricing needs to move to a system without rebates and said payments from drugmakers to PBMs should be eliminated. In listing four HHS actions that could hurt manufacturers, Risinger pointed out that Azar said he is interested in removing 100% cap on Medicaid rebates; he would like to adjust the Part D protected drug classes so that plans can extract rebates from manufacturers; HHS wants to require manufacturers to disclose drug list prices in TV ads; and HHS is focused on transitioning Part B to lower-priced private sector management. In summary, the analyst said that for drugmakers there was "no fire, but smoke signals worth noting." Publicly traded large-cap drugmakers include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).

Wells says Amazon deal, Walgreens results have negative read for drug pricing
After Amazon (AMZN) agreed to acquire online pharmacy PillPack, reportedly for $1B, Wells Fargo analyst David Maris noted that he has long stated that Amazon would enter the pharmacy business and warned about the risk to drug pricing in such a scenario. Maris also noted that Walgreens (WBA) reported its U.S. retail pharmacy comparable store sales fell 1.2% in Q3, adding that retailers tend to push drugmakers on price when they feel pressure and the read-through from its report may be negative for drug pricing. Publicly traded large-cap drugmakers include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).

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).
