Viking Therapeutics initiated with a Buy at Stifel

Stifel analyst Derek Archila initiated Viking Therapeutics with a Buy rating and $14 price target, citing his belief that the IND for VK2809 will be accepted and his view that concerns around the drug's tolerability profile are unwarranted. He is confident that the FDA will allow Viking to initiate a Phase 2b study in biopsy proven non-alcoholic steatohepatitis patients, Archila tells investors.

Viking Therapeutics data 'compelling' at low doses, says H.C. Wainwright
Viking Therapeutics reported additional results this morning from its 12-week Phase 2 data of the lower 5mg dose of VK2809 in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The "compelling" results show "impressive" safety and efficacy at low doses, H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis tells investors in a research note. Importantly, VK2809 at low doses is able to "significantly reduce" liver fat content in 12 weeks to an extent similar to the one demonstrated by the higher doses tested, says the analyst. He reiterates a Buy rating on Viking Therapeutics with a $31 price target.

Viking bear thesis based on 'fears and alternative facts,' says H.C. Wainwright
Bear pressure on Viking Therapeutics is "winning by share performance metric," but it is based on "fears and alternative facts," H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis tells investors in a research note. He believes Viking's shares are not reflecting the "compelling data" delivered to date for VK2809, as well as VK5211. The "massive" short interest, currently about 45% of shares outstanding, has been putting "significant pressure on the shares following highly positive news events," says Pantginis. The analyst continues to believe VK2809 represents a potential best-in-class molecule that could "also benefit from the clear definition of regulatory paths and questions established by others." He reiterates a Buy rating on Viking Therapeutics with a $31 price target.

Viking Therapeutics risk/reward symmetry skewed to upside, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Andy Hsieh reiterates an Outperform rating on Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) after hosting investor meetings the company's CEO Brian Lian. The analyst continues to view Viking's risk/reward symmetry as skewed to the upside, especially with the recent sector volatility and the "continued significant valuation gap" with competitor Madrigal Pharmaceuticals (MDGL). Viking is on track to file an investigational new drug application later this year to the FDA's Division of Gastroenterology and Inborn Errors Products, which would enable the company to initiate the Phase II biopsy-confirmed nonalcoholic steatohepatitis study, Hsieh tells investors in a research note.

Hold
Madrigal Pharmaceuticals initiated with a Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst Derek Archila initiated Madrigal Pharmaceuticals (MDGL) with a Hold rating and $126 price target, stating that he is positively biased heading into Phase 3 amid emerging evidence that point to the possibility resmetirom could demonstrate a benefit on fibrosis over time. However, he thinks the stock could be volatile around updates from competitors such as Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) and Genfit (GNFT) and sees few catalysts specific to Madrigal to drive shares up in the next 12-18 months, Archila tells investors.
