Coherus should be bought on weakness from Enbrel ruling, says Barclays
Barclays analyst Balaji Prasad recommends buying shares of Coherus Biosciences (CHRS) on any weakness from Amgen's (AMGN) favorable Enbrel patent ruling against Novartis (NVS). Coherus is developing its own Enbrel generic, says the analyst, whose model already factors a launch in Q2 of 2029, following the expiration of the last U.S. Enbrel patent. As such, Prasad is making no change to his estimates following Friday's decision. He remains positive on Coherus and would use any share weakness as an opportunity to add a "fundamentally sound company." Prasad reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $31 price target.

Amgen a 'cleaner' story with Enbrel overhang removed, says Citi
Citi analyst Mohit Bansal says the favorable Enbrel patent ruling makes Amgen a "cleaner biotech story." This was a key overhang on Amgen, and the removal could let investors become more constructive on the company's pipeline, Bansal tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst thinks Amgen's legacy business decline is now approaching an inflection point where other products could offset it. He keeps a Buy rating on Amgen shares.

Amgen wins 'big' in courtroom, Enbrel overhang removed, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond reiterates an Overweight rating and a $210 price target on Amgen's (AMGN) shares following news that the company has won the Enbrel IP litigation with challenger Sandoz. The analyst notes that this challenge could have pulled forward Enbrel's LOE from 2029 to essentially right now, which has been the number 1 concern surrounding the stock. With shares up about 6% on this news, Raymond sees the reaction as appropriate and, while the stock is approaching his target at these levels, he believes shares are likely to grind higher on this removed overhang. Sandoz is a division of Novartis (NVS).

Amgen price target raised to $202 from $197 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jim Birchenough raised his price target for Amgen to $202 from $197 following the positive District Court decision on ENBREL patents. With validity of ENBREL patents affirmed, the analyst also adjusted his sales estimates to reflect stable trends, and lack of biosimilar erosion beyond 2019. Nonetheless, Birchenough reiterates a Market Perform rating on the shares as he believes the stock is fully-valued relative to growth, even with upward revision to ENBREL estimates.

The analyst also raises his FY19 and FY20 EPS outlook by 13c and 15c to $3.55 and $3.90 respectively to account for the earnings beat in the quarter and to reflect "greater visibility of expense-reduction-driven earnings growth."

JPMorgan prefers shares of US Foods over Sysco
JPMorgan analyst John Ivankoe says his conversations with the US Foods (USFD) investor relations team suggest the company's business is performing better than Sysco (SYY) and largely holding Q1 trends into Q2. Following the recent pullback in the shares, US Foods is the better name to own of the two, Ivankoe tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on both names.

Michaels (MIK) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Elizabeth Suzuki citing a U.S. arts and crafts consumer survey that she said gave some color on why the company's same-store sales growth has been "lackluster. 5. News Corp. (NWSA) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Alexia Quadrani saying while the stock may appear attractively valued, she has little conviction in forward estimates.

JPMorgan downgrades News Corp. to Underweight, cuts price target to $12
JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani last night downgraded News Corp. to Underweight from Neutral and lowered her price target for the shares to $12 from $13. The analyst says that while the stock may appear attractively valued, she has little conviction in forward estimates. Quadrani, who points out she's reduced News Corp.'s estimates 12 times over the last three years, believes challenges will persist in the company's News and Information Services and Subscription Video Services divisions. Further, she sees weakness in new listings at REA and "further headwinds to growth continuing." The analyst looks for stabilization in her estimates or signs of strategic change as catalysts to reevaluate her rating.

News Corp. downgraded to Underweight on Foxtel OTT risks at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Andrew McLeod downgraded News Corp. to Underweight from Equal Weight, noting that its Australian payTV unit, Foxtel, will launch a new OTT sports service by the end of 2018, which presents the "obvious risk" that its existing subscriber base and high ARPU will come under pressure. While McLeod believes it's a risk that should be taken because "history says that if Foxtel doesn't disrupt itself, someone else will," he also cut his estimates and value for the unit. McLeod lowered his price target on News Corp. shares to $12.50 from $17.00.

Hannan believes the market is not adequately reflecting the full value of REA and Move in News Corp.'s shares.

JPMorgan downgrades CenturyLink to Underweight, calls dividend inappropriate
JPMorgan analyst Phil Cusick downgraded CenturyLink to Underweight from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $10 from $14. The company reported Q2 results with better adjusted EBITDA on improved cost of service despite weaker revenue in both Consumer and Business segments, Cusick tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, believes CenturyLink's business will remain challenged. He views the continued payment of a dividend as inappropriate given the company's "elevated" leverage profile and "persistently weak" revenue trends. Without massive capital investment, CenturyLink's consumer business can't inflect toward growth or be sold at an accretive multiple, says Cusick.

CenturyLink no longer deserves Underperform rating, says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Frank Louthan upgraded CenturyLink to Market Perform from Underperform following roughly in-line results for the second quarter and "steady" guidance. In a research note to investors, Louthan says integration issues at CenturyLink "appear to be behind them," and that while he still sees the top line declines as a continuing issue that restricts value, he feels that with a situation that could see more go right than can go wrong, he believes CenturyLink no longer deserves an Underperform rating.
