'Never seen anything like this,' H.C. Wainwright says of Nektar
H.C. Wainwright analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay says he's "never seen anything like this" and that it's time for the board of Nektar Therapeutics to step in. Significant numbers of patients in the Pivot and the majority in the Propel study were treated with drug product that did not meet release criteria, leading to inadequate and poor responses, "at least that is the current hypothesis," Chattopadhyay tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the missteps "seriously dent" confidence in the management team's ability to execute. He reiterates a Neutral rating on shares of Nektar.

Jefferies downgrades Nektar on increased uncertainty with lead program
Jefferies analyst David Steinberg downgraded Nektar Therapeutics to Hold from Buy and cut his price target for the shares to $23 from $59. The company last night disclosed a manufacturing issue that resulted in batch to batch variability in certain early lots of bempeg used in clinical testing, Steinberg tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the disclosure increases uncertainty surrounding Nektar's lead program. While management believes they have a handle on the situation, their hypothesis may not be confirmed for some time, says the analyst.

William Blair an 'aggressive' buyer of Nektar on today's 37% selloff
William Blair analyst Andy Hsieh is an "aggressive" buyer of Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR) on today's selloff. The stock is down after management disclosed that the scope of collaboration with partner Bristol-Myers (BMY) is now narrowed to roughly five or six registrational trials from the planned 18 first announced in January of this year, and that there were some issues pertaining to the manufacturing of bempegaldesleukin that potentially led to the drastic difference in response rate between the November 2017 and June 2018 data announcement of the Phase II PIVOT-02 results, Hsieh tells investors in a research note. While acknowledging that the development is "directionally negative," the analyst believes the magnitude of the Nektar selloff overshoots the potential impact. In addition, Nektar is working with the FDA and partner Bristol-Myers to resolve the manufacturing issue by establishing new quality control initiatives, Hsieh points out. He believes empegaldesleukin "remains differentiated" and he keeps an Outperform rating on Nektar Therapeutics. The stock in premarket trading is down 37%, or $10.92, to $18.65.

Nektar price target lowered to $41 from $75 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst George Farmer lowered his price target on Nektar to $41 after the company discovered "defective bempeg drug lots administered in PIVOT-2" study, saying the development clouds his view of on-going non-small cell lung, renal cell, and urothelial carcinoma trials. The analyst still keeps his Outperform rating on Nektar given the high potential of bempeg in melanoma, but expects the negative sentiment to persist until the next pivotal trial updates in the second half of 2020.
