BioMarin competitive positioning 'improved measurably,' says Piper Jaffray
Spark Therapeutics' (ONCE) update this morning for hemophilia A candidate SPK-8011 was disappointing both efficacy- and safety-wise, Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond tells investors in a research note titled "Spark Fails to Ignite; Valrox Competitive Positioning Just Improved Measurably." He believes the news "goes a long way" to putting this potential threat to BioMarin (BMRN) "to bed." The analyst is incrementally positive on BioMarin's competitive positioning in hemophilia A and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $120 price target. The Spark data compares unfavorably to BioMarin's valrox, Raymond writes. He remains a buyer of BioMarin with an Overweight rating and $120 price target. The stock in premarket trading is up $5.55 to $103.50.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) downgraded to Underperform from Hold at Needham with analyst Rajvindra Gill saying the stock remains overvalued in spite of its 16% decline from the the June 2017 peak. 2. Procter & Gamble (PG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Steven Strycula saying the company's reinvestment cycle limits earnings and stock upside. 3. Terex (TEX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Andrew Casey saying his crane check was good but not great, with demand appearing to sequentially flatten. 4. Spark Therapeutics (ONCE) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Kennen MacKay saying that after a strong run-up in the stock price driven by lofty expectations for the ongoing Phase 1/2 trial of SPK-8011 in patients with hemophilia, achieving mean FVIII expression levels of 30-55% anticipated by the Street could prove "challenging" as "data to date has not indicated clear dose responsiveness." 5. Hyatt (H) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Berenberg with analyst El Kassir saying Hyatt continues to benchmark well on its pipeline, however, there is little scope for future growth to accelerate from current levels. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Spark Therapeutics cut to Sector Perform at RBC Capital on SPK-801 concern
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Kennen MacKay downgraded Spark Therapeutics to Sector Perform from Outperform and kept his $75 price target. The analyst notes that after a strong run-up in the stock price driven by lofty expectations for the ongoing Phase 1/2 trial of SPK-8011 in patients with hemophilia, achieving mean FVIII expression levels of 30-55% anticipated by the Street could prove "challenging" as "data to date has not indicated clear dose responsiveness." McKay also cites the possibility of regulatory delays to gain approval for sale of Luxturna among the risks for Spark Therapeutics.
