Geron initiated with an Overweight at Cantor Fitzgerald

Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Charles Duncan started Geron with an Overweight rating and $4 price target. Geron's "first-in-class" telomerase inhibitor imetelstat leverages a novel drug target to address myelodysplastic syndrome and myeloproliferative neoplasms, Duncan tells investors in a research note. The analyst views the company's shares as undervalued.

Geron upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham
Needham analyst Chad Messer upgraded Geron (GERN) to Buy with a price target of $3, saying the return of development rights for imetelstat in September by Janssen (JNJ) has created a "buying opportunity". The analyst cites the program's subsequent readouts from Phase II IMbark and IMerge studies in myelofibrosis and myelodysplastic syndrome, which he states has "established efficacy in both patient populations." Messer further contends that big pharma passing on imetelstat does not reflect a fundamental issue with the drug itself.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Doug Creutz saying he views Disney's "catalyst path for the next year as highly attractive" and believes Thursday's investor day will likely be a "deck-clearing event for sentiment." 2. Comcast (CMCSA) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie with analyst Amy Young saying she remains bullish on pure-play Altice and efforts across Sky, Xfinity, and NBCU. 3. Geron (GERN) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham with analyst Chad Messer saying the return of development rights for imetelstat in September by Janssen (JNJ) has created a "buying opportunity." 4. Public Storage (PSA) upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies with analyst Omotayo Okusanya saying with interest rates set to be lower for longer, equity risk premiums have dropped. 5. PerkinElmer (PKI) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Patrick Donnelly saying the continuation of the company's growth acceleration should exceed "conservative" expectations.

Geron price target raised to $4.50 from $3.25 at B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst George Zavoico raised his price target for Geron to $4.50 from $3.25 after the company recently presented new results from its two trials of imetelstat in two different blood cancers. The results provide "strong evidence" of safety and efficacy that is "markedly superior" to current standard of care, Zavoico tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on Geron.
