Ligand price target raised to $300 from $260 at Argus
Argus analyst Jasper Hellweg raised his price target on Ligand Pharmaceuticals to $300 and kept his Buy rating, saying that valuation is more in line with the Price/Earnings to Growth industry average ratio of 1.7-times. The analyst notes that the company is "on track" to post solid earnings growth over the period of the next several years thanks to its primary products of Promacta for clotting and Kyprolis for melanoma. Hellweg adds that Ligand also offers a "strong pipeline of new products" having partnered with over 100 pharmaceutical and biotech companies, with over 170 programs under license or in clinical development at this time. The analyst further points to the company's "clean" balance sheet and a "promising" technical pattern of its stock price.

Buy
Ligand price target raised to $270 from $257 at H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis raised his price target for Ligand Pharmaceuticals (LGND) to $270 after Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) announced that VK2809 Phase 2 data in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and elevated LDL-cholesterol hit their endpoints "in a significant fashion." The analyst believes VK2809 represents an important value driver for Ligand. Currently, Ligand owns approximately 10.4% of Viking's shares outstanding and if approved, Ligand is also entitled to tiered royalties of 3.5%-7.5% of VK2809 sales, Pantginis tells investors in a research note partially titled "Viking, Value, and Ligand; a Nice Match." He keeps a Buy rating on Ligand.

Ligand price target raised to $280 from $270 at H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis raised his price target for Ligand Pharmaceuticals (LGND) to $280 after Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) and investigators presented updated VK5211 data in an oral plenary presentation at the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research meeting. VK5211 produces significant muscle growth in hip fracture patients and treated patients experienced overall weight gain, with loss of body fat, Pantginis tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the chances for an outright acquisition of Viking has increased with VK2809 and VK5211 having the potential to address very large markets. He keeps a Buy rating on Ligand.
