William Blair sum-of-the-parts analysis yields $19.80 value for Pfenex
The majority of Pfenex (PFNX) investor focus has been placed on lead asset PF708, the therapeutic equivalent product candidate to Forteo, William Blair analyst Andy Hsieh tells investors in a research note, citing his talks with clients. The analyst, however, sees "potential for significant value" from the company's collaboration with Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ). The deal with Jazz could provide patients with an alternative to Erwinaze/Erwinase, which currently suffers from significant supply constraints, and CRM197, a carrier protein that is incorporated as an adjuvant in several vaccine candidates, including Merck's (MRK) pneumococcal vaccine, V114, Hsieh writes. Based on these royalties, the analyst conducted a sum-of-the-parts analysis for Pfenex based on discounted cash flow, and the resulting net present value yielded a value of $19.80 per share. The stock closed Monday at $4.26. The analyst believes the company's "value-creating" catalysts this year, including milestone payment from Jazz for the successful tech transfer of PF743 and PF745 and the approval of PF708, coupled with his valuation analysis, affirm his bullish thesis. Hsieh believes Pfenex shares offer one of the best risk/reward symmetries in small-cap biotech and reiterates an Outperform rating on the name.

Merck opportunity in China is underappreciated, says Cantor Fitzgerald
After taking a deeper look at the Chinese PD-1 market, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Louise Chen believes it could equate to billions of sales that are not yet in the forecasts for Merck's Keytruda. She thinks the peak sales potential of PD-1s in China remains underappreciated. China's pharma market can grow to $225B by 2025, which would support a growing PD-1/PD-L1 market, Chen tells investors in a research note titled "Deep Dive into China: A Complicated but Underappreciated Opportunity." The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Merck with a $95 price target.

Bayer shares likely to remain 'depressed' pending trial success, says Citi
While sentiment will "clearly take a knock" at the second Roundup trial going against Bayer (BAYRY), both verdicts were delivered by juries in California and EUR 22B of litigation risk is already priced into the shares, Citi analyst Peter Verdult tells investors in a research note. The analyst says his legal checks continue to instruct him to be more focused on the upcoming Hall vs. Monsanto trial being held in St Louis from April 1. He says that verdict will better determine whether his estimate of a potential settlement liability of $1B-$6B needs to be refined. However, Bayer shares will "likely remain depressed" until there is evidence of the company prevailing in one or more of the six cases to go to trial in 2019, Verdult contends. He keeps a Buy rating on the stock but prefers other Pharma plays AstraZeneca (AZN), Sanofi (SNY), Novartis (NVS) and Merck (MRK).

Procter & Gamble price target raised to $102 from $95 at UBS
UBS analyst Steven Strycula raised his price target on Procter & Gamble (PG) to $102, saying that yesterday's sell-off on investor concerns about the company's ability to boost margin "overlooks" the "upcoming inflection". The analyst keeps his Neutral rating, but notes that the Q3 margin pressure was "transitory" as it was impacted by adverse FX, commodities, higher bonus, and Merck (MRK) integration headwinds.
