Merck names Michael Nally as Chief Marketing Officer

Merck announced that Adam Schechter, president of Global Human Health, is stepping down from his current position as of Dec. 31, 2018, and will be shifting to an advisory capacity to the CEO. The company is taking the opportunity to reshape its commercial organization and is creating two new Executive Committee roles. Frank Clyburn has been promoted to Chief Commercial Officer and Michael Nally has been promoted to Chief Marketing Officer. Frank Clyburn, who will take on the role of Chief Commercial Officer, effective Jan. 1, 2019, has held a number of leadership positions across Merck. Most recently, Clyburn was the President of the Global Oncology business. In his new role, Clyburn will report directly to Ken Frazier and will be a member of the Executive Committee. He will be responsible for all operations and P&L across Merck's human health commercial portfolio globally. Clyburn joined Merck in 2008 and has had responsibility for numerous global pharmaceutical franchises, including diabetes, cardiovascular and women's health, as well as leadership of marketing and sales teams. Michael Nally, who will become Chief Marketing Officer, effective Jan. 1, 2019, most recently led the company's Vaccines business. In his new role, Nally will report directly to Ken Frazier and will be a member of the Executive Committee. Nally will be responsible for Global Marketing and long-term franchise strategy across the portfolio. Nally has been at Merck since 2003 and served in a number of roles with responsibilities including being the Managing Director of UK, Ireland and Sweden as well a variety of roles in Commercial Operations, Business Development and Investor Relations.

Pfizer price hikes may bring industry scrutiny, says Wells Fargo
Pfizer's (PFE) plans to raise prices on a host of medicines may put the drug industry "further in the crosshairs of an administration and Congress that is set on lowering drug prices," Wells Fargo analyst David Maris tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out that Pfizer earlier this year was criticized by the Trump administration for drug price increases, and as a result, it rolled the price increases back. However, Pfizer's new price increases "are not egregious" and its advance warning may be an attempt to see if minor price increases will also bring the administration's rebuke, says Maris. Nonetheless, given how public the administration's previous rebuke was, the analyst thinks Pfizer's confirmation Friday could "enflame the debate around drug pricing, especially since it comes less than two weeks following an election that resulted in Democrat control of the House with many having run on a drug-price-controls/Medicare-for-All platforms." Other large drugmakers include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).

OncoSec price target lowered to $3 from $5 at Piper Jaffray
After OncoSec (ONCS) reported preliminary Phase 2b KEYNOTE-695 data for Tavo combined with Merck's (MRK) Keytruda in PD-1 refractory melanoma patients, Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff said the data, while early, show evidence of clinical activity, adding that he believes duration of response data will be important. However, OncoSec shares are down 52% today, which Tenthoff attributes to the lower response rate compared to prior data in different patients. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on OncoSec shares, but lowered his price target on the stock to $3 from $5 as he pushed out his approval projections for Tavo by one year in the U.S. and Europe.

Merck price target raised to $84 from $79 at Citi
Citi analyst Andrew Baum raised his price target for Merck to $84 and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst says his 20%-plus above consensus non-GAAP earnings estimates beyond 2022 are driven by a continued view that the market underestimates Merck's market share in the PDx and PARP spaces with Keytruda and Lynparza respectively.

Wells Fargo says Trump speech today won't be end of drug pricing proposals
Wells Fargo analyst David Maris notes that Politico and other media outlets are reporting that President Donald Trump will propose several new initiatives to address high drug prices when he speaks later today at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Maris thinks Trump's focus will be on how other countries are "freeloading" on U.S. innovation with lower negotiated pricing, stating that news reports make it appear that the administration is targeting the industry for action, rather than other countries to raise their spending. While Maris acknowledges the timing of the speech being near the mid-term elections, he believes these proposals are simply the follow-though of earlier promises. He also expects this is not the end of proposals to address the issue of U.S. 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).
