Merck price target raised to $95 from $85 at Argus

Argus analyst David Toung raised his price target on Merck to $95 and kept his Buy rating after its better than expected Q4 results, further citing the company's approval for additional indications of Keytrude in U.S., Japan, and Europe. The analyst is also positive on Merck's other "strong growth drivers" in Gardasil, Bridion, Lynparza, and Lenvima, as well as in animal health products.

Fly Intel: 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 Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Joseph Spak saying the company's more "tactful messaging" conveys downward pressure to growth expectations and also sees the "realities" of Tesla becoming a volume player highlighting its "challenges to scale and deliver high volume at high ASPs/margins." 2. Lowe's (LOW) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst Laura Champine saying she thinks she was previously too optimistic on Lowe's likely margin progression. 3. Williams-Sonoma (WSM) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Simeon Gutman saying he believes top and bottom-line pressures will intensify in 2019. 4. Merck (MRK) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Alex Arfaei citing the company's over-dependence on Keytruda, the Street's high expectations, and his views on upcoming competitor trials combining for a more balanced risk-reward on Merck. 5. Pfizer (PFE) and Mylan (MYL) were downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Merck initiating three Phase 3 trials with Keytruda for prostate cancer
Merck (announced the presentation of interim data from the Phase 1b/2 KEYNOTE-365 umbrella trial investigating Keytruda, Merck's anti-PD-1 therapy, in combination with various agents for the treatment of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. These early findings show anti-tumor activity across three cohorts of the study, which investigated Keytruda in combination with Lynparza for Cohort A, docetaxel and prednisone for Cohort B, and enzalutamide for Cohort C - with a safety profile consistent with each therapy alone. These results are being presented at the 2019 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in San Francisco. Based on the findings, Merck is initiating three new pivotal Phase 3 trials with Keytruda in combination with Lynparza, docetaxel and prednisone and enzalutamide. With the initiation of KEYLYNK-010, KEYNOTE-921 and KEYNOTE-641, Merck now has the only program to evaluate overall survival as a co-primary endpoint across three Phase 3 trials.
