Conatus downgraded to Hold at SunTrust after failed ENCORE-NF trial

As previously reported, SunTrust analyst Edward Nash downgraded Conatus to Hold after it disclosed yesterday that its emricasan failed to demonstrate the desired effect in the Phase 2B NASH fibrosis study. The analyst says this represents the second major setback for the company and has led him to become "increasingly concerned about the prospect of the third Phase 2B readout, slated to be announced in mid-2019". Nash notes that he has removed all projected revenues associated with emricasan from his model.

Conatus price target lowered to $12 from $20 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst John Boris lowered his price target on Conatus (CNAT) to $12 after yesterday's release of the ENCORE-PH top-line results showing that a phase-2b study of Emricasan missed its primary endpoint. The analyst keeps his Buy rating however, stating that the drug still showed a "clinically meaningful" benefit in NASH" while pushing out the expected launch of the program to 2023, citing the anticipated evaluation of data for a potential combination with one of Novartis's (NVS) FXR agonists.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Facebook (FB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt saying Facebook has made too many enemies, including politicians, regulators, technology leaders, consumers, and employees, to not experience "long-term negative ramifications on its business." 2. Conatus (CNAT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Stephen Willey saying the Encore-PH trial missed its pre-specified primary endpoint but post-hoc analyses demonstrated a trend towards statistically significant/emricasan-mediated improvements in patients with compensated cirrhosis and elevated baseline hepatic venous pressure gradient values. 3. BHP Billiton (BHP) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Lyndon Fagan saying the stock has outperformed Rio Tinto (RIO) by 10% year-to-date, and is now trading "within range of our valuation." 4. Toll Brothers (TOL) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Michael Dahl citing a "sharper than expected weakness in orders and likelihood of further near-term declines," with softer margin assumptions attributed to a weaker outlook for orders. 5. Bluebird Bio (BLUE) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Tyler Van Buren saying the company is "incredibly innovative" company and bb2121 and LentiGlobin are essentially curing some patients, but the benefits "are not without serious risks." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Conatus price target lowered to $8 from $14 at H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Ed Arce lowered his price target for Conatus Pharmaceuticals to $8 from $14 after updating his model post the company's Q4 results. The analyst previously projected market launch for emricasan in the second half of 2021, but now adopts a "more normal, less aggressive timeline," reflecting in part the "highly competitive environment" expected over the next few years to recruit patients for Phase 3 nonalcoholic steatohepatitis trials. Arce now anticipates market entry in the first half of 2023. He affirms a Buy rating on Conatus.
