Piper Jaffray says Amgen should buy Alexion

Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher J. Raymond maintained an Overweight rating on both Amgen (AMGN) and Alexion (ALXN), noting in a research note titled 'AMGN for ALXN - Not Saying it Will Happen But We Still Think it Should Happen' that "less-than-mainstream"Spanish publication Intereconomia reported that Amgen is in final phases to acquire Alexion. While the analyst questions the validity of this report, he feels the move "could make a ton of sense, with significant accretion even at $200/share."

Amgen, Celgene downgraded to Neutral on valuation at Mizuho
As previously reported, Mizuho analyst Salim Syed downgraded Amgen (AMGN) and Celgene (CELG), each to Neutral from Buy, "solely" on the stock's current trading prices nearing what the analyst views as appropriate valuations. Amgen has run up over the last week by about 10% following a "very clean Enbrel litigation win," but the stock price now gives full credit for its Enbrel IP, said Syed, who raised his price target on Amgen shares to $212 from $208. He also cut his price target on Celgene shares to $100 from $103, based on a calculation of one Bristol-Myers (BMY) share being worth $47, plus $50 cash per share and $3 for a risk-adjusted CVR valuation.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Air Products (APD) downgraded to Neutral from Positive at Susquehanna. 2. Whiting Petroleum (WLL) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at Scotiabank and to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens. 3. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Mizuho. 4. Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP) and Peabody Energy (BTU) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 5. Trillium Therapeutics (TRIL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at H.C. Wainwright with analyst Swayampakula Ramakanth saying the stock's 80% drop in price to 26c per share from $1.32 in the last six months could "lead to a cash crunch," leaving significant risk for its ability to raise sufficient capital to fund ongoing clinical studies. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Amgen price target raised to $192 from $189 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Kennen MacKay raised his price target on Amgen to $192, boosting his out-year estimates for Embrel sales as well as to reflect the "blockbuster" potential of AMG510. The analyst keeps his Sector Perform rating, noting that he still awaits data updates to better assess durability and competitor dynamics.

Alexion shares still range-bound on 'unfounded' concerns, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond is "incrementally positive" on Alexion shares following the company's "strong across-the-board" Q2 results. The stock, however, remains range-bound on "unfounded" concerns over the trajectory of Soliris/Ultomiris and the company's ability to diversify away from the franchise, Raymond tells investors in a research note. The analyst continued to think patient investors will be rewarded and he reiterates an Overweight rating on Alexion with a $180 price target. He continues to like the setup at current share levels.

RA Pharmaceuticals double downgraded to Market Perform at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James analyst Steven Seedhouse double downgraded RA Pharmaceuticals (RARX) to Market Perform from Strong Buy after the stock's rise to $36 per share from about $5.50 per share in March 2018. While he views zilucoplan as a promising therapy for generalized myasthenia gravis, or gMG, the market is pricing the stock "appropriately" for a drug that appears to be competitive with Alexion's (ALXN) Soliris, Seedhouse tells investors.

Overweight
Alexion assumed with an Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Cory Kasimov assumed coverage of Alexion Pharmaceuticals with an Overweight rating and $172 price target. The rating is unchanged and the target is lowered from $179 relative to his firm's prior coverage. The analyst says early switch metrics on Soliris/Ultomiris conversion gives him confidence that Alexion's greater than 70% guidance by mid 2020 is achievable and potentially conservative. This may also have favorable read-through for Ultomiris in other indications that could contribute meaningfully to better than expected durable growth over the intermediate term, Kasimov tells investors in a research note.

Xencor price target raised to $54 from $43 at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst David Nierengarten raised his price target for Xencor (XNCR) to $54 from $43 as he believes it remains a de-risked platform name, no near-term cash needs, and with support for its valuation from Alexion (ALXN) Ultomiris royalties, and a potentially more significant royalty stream from tafasitamab with multiple early-stage pipeline candidates to provide future upside. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Xencor's shares.
