FDA grants regular approval for pembrolizumab combo for NSqNSCLC

The Food and Drug Administration approved pembrolizumab, marketed as Keytruda by Merck, in combination with pemetrexed and platinum as first-line treatment of patients with metastatic, non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer, or NSqNSCLC, with no EGFR or ALK genomic tumor aberrations. Pembrolizumab was previously granted accelerated approval for this indication in May 2017 based on improvements in overall response rate and progression-free survival for patients randomized to pembrolizumab administered with pemetrexed and carboplatin as compared with pemetrexed and carboplatin alone in the KEYNOTE-021 study. "Today's approval represents fulfillment of a postmarketing commitment demonstrating the clinical benefit of this product," the FDA stated on August 17. Reference Link

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).

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).

Merck Q2 estimates lowered below consensus at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst David Risinger cut his Q2 revenue estimate for Merck by 1% to $10.1B, which he notes is below the consensus view of $10.3B, and lowered his Q2 EPS estimate by 6% to 97c. This is below the consensus view of $1.03, which he argues "needs to come down." The two key drivers were lowering his estimates for Keytruda in the U.S. due to a more gradual ramp in first-line lung cancer patients and the negative impact of hedging, which he sees being similar to, but less pronounced, than in Q1. He lowered his full-year EPS view by only 1%, however, which puts it 2% below consensus. Risinger keeps an Overweight rating and $68 price target on Merck shares.

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).
