Ligand shares weak on RVT-1502 update, says H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis attributes the post-earnings selloff today in shares of Ligand Pharmaceuticals to the company's update on RVT-1502. As part of its quarterly update this morning, Ligand indicated its belief that development of RVT-1502 with partner Metavant in the U.S. is highly unlikely to occur for diabetes, Pantginis tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes this clarity is responsible for today's share weakness but he points out that he's already incorporated this news into his valuation. On May 3 Pantginis removed the asset from his valuation, which lowered his price target for Ligand to the current $214. However, the company's growing OmniAb "juggernaut" continues to not be valued, and is a "company and franchise unto itself," says the analyst. He reiterates a Buy rating on Ligand Pharmaceuticals.

Ligand upgraded to Overweight on pipeline potential at Barclays
As previously reported, Barclays analyst Balaji Prasad upgraded Ligand to Overweight from Equal Weight as he believes greater clarity on its pipeline offers strong support for its revenue potential and he revised his revenue forecasts for FY19-FY23 due to increased royalty estimates. The analyst pointed toward the upcoming sNDA for Baxdela IV in community-acquired bacterial pneumonia and Sparsentan topline Phase 3 data in FSGS, expected in the second half of 2020, as events to watch. Additionally, new Phase 3 data on Kyprolis + Darzalex may increase overall prescription levels, said Prasad, who also sees an improved risk/reward following the stock's recent underperformance compared to the NYSE ARCA Pharma Index. Prasad raised his price target for Ligand shares to $132 from $110.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Hyatt (H) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Stephen Grambling saying the company is moving more aggressively towards asset light model, which should drive free cash flow and a re-rating in the shares. 2. Ligand (LGND) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Balaji Prasad saying he believes greater clarity on its pipeline offers strong support for its revenue potential and he revised his revenue forecasts for FY19-FY23 due to increased royalty estimates. 3. Twilio (TWLO) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Meta Marshall saying the company is building out a next-generation communication platform, with multiple expansion markets "still in their infancy." 4. KKR (KKR) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexander Blostein saying KKR is entering a period of accelerated earnings growth, driven by its upcoming fund-raising cycle and maturing investment portfolio, which should yield above-consensus incentive income and earnings. 5. Cousins Properties (CUZ) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Blaine Heck saying the company's share underperformance year-to-date relative to peers is not warranted given its exposure to office markets that should see solid rent growth over the next 12-24 months. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
