Court allowed Merck to hide popular drug's risks, Reuters says

Lawsuits claim Merck's baldness drug Propecia causes sexual problems and depression, allegations the company has denied in court filings, Reuters' Dan Levine reports. According to a Reuters investigation, the judge sealed evidence suggesting the maker downplayed the side effects. Filing errors in a federal court case allowed Reuters' reporter to view material that lawyers had intended to keep confidential. Reference Link

Oppenheimer downgrades Intec Pharma after 'major setback' of trial miss
As previously reported, Oppenheimer analyst Jay Olson downgraded Intec Pharma (NTEC) to Perform from Outperform after the company announced "a major setback" as the ACCORDANCE study did not achieve statistical superiority to Sinemet on the primary endpoint of reduction in daily OFF time. He noted that the company still has additional opportunities with other drugs, including proprietary partnerships with Novartis (NVS) and Merck (MRK), but said the read across from AP-CD/LD to other AP applications in different diseases is uncertain following this morning's news.

Buy
Merck price target raised to $105 from $95 at Argus
Argus analyst David Toung raised his price target on Merck to $105 and kept his Buy rating after its "strong" Keytruda-driven Q2 earnings beat, also boosting his FY19 and FY20 EPS view by 16c and 10c to $4.89 and $5.35 respectively. The analyst sees Merck's "blockbuster" Keytruda drug on track for additional indications in the U.S., Japan, China and Europe, with additional growth drivers coming from its Gardasil, Bridion, Lynparza, and Lenvima programs.
