Spark Therapeutics rallies after FTC says Bruce Hoffman staying until November

Shares of Spark Therapeutics (ONCE) are rallying after the Federal Trade Commission announced this morning that Bureau of Competition Director Bruce Hoffman will be leaving the agency in November after serving in the position for more than two years. FTC Chairman Simons announced his intention to appoint Ian Conner, currently Deputy Director of the Bureau of Competition, to succeed Hoffman. Conner has served as Deputy Director since September 2017. Roche (RHHBY) on September 30 extended the offering period of its previously announced tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Spark Therapeutics for $114.50 per share. Investors may see the departure of Hoffman as a positive for the takeover winning approval as Hoffman likely wouldn't be leaving in the middle of a review of the deal, according to Bloomberg's Joshua Fineman. Shares of Spark are up 4%, or $3.72, to $99.98 in afternoon trading.

BioMarin data alleviates valrox durability overhang, re-awakens M&A, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse raised its price target for BioMarin (BMRN) to $133 from $131, while nudging up valrox Probability of Success to 75% from 65%. The firm thinks the valoctocogene roxaparvovec data largely alleviates the valrox durability overhang and re-awakens an M&A thesis on BioMarin on the value of its gene therapy platform. The company's de-risked Phase 3 valrox program and established mfg infrastructure put the company's gene tx assets in the valuation range up to that established by the AveXis (AVXS) and Spark Therapeutics (ONCE) transactions, Credit Suisse contends.

uniQure weakness a buying opportunity, says Janney Montgomery Scott
Janney Montgomery Scott analyst Yun Zhong said he does not see any fundamental reason for today's weakness in shares of uniQure (QURE), attributing the pullback as likely due to profit taking following some recent strong performance. Roche's (RHHBY) deal to buy Spark Therapeutics (ONCE) in February had a positive impact on the overall gene therapy sector and investor speculation has contributed to an over 30% increase in uniQure shares over the past two weeks, noted Zhong, who said his valuation does not include any acquisition assumption or premium. The analyst, who sees uniQure having the first FDA approval for an AAV gene therapy for hemophilia B and the first AAV gene therapy program in the clinic for Huntington's disease, keeps a Buy rating on the stock and would be a buyer amid today's weakness.

Bluebird Hem A collaboration not stock moving, but worth monitoring, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Benjamin Burnett said he does not expect news that Blubird Bio (BLUE) is entering the Hemophila A race via a collaboration with Novo Nordisk (NVO) to be stock moving, but he does think it is "certainly worth monitoring." Biomarin's (BMRN) gene therapy candidate Valrox sets "the bar for genetic medicines in heme A today," said Burnett, who noted that gene therapies from Spark (ONCE) and Pfizer (PFE) are also in the clinic. However, "there does appear to be room for efficacy improvement as none of the clinical data generated from genetic medicines to date is a clear home run," Burnett added in his note to investors. He keeps a Hold rating on Bluebird Bio shares.

Competition questions for Biogen, Ions' Spinraza not dissipating soon, says JPMorgan
Following Biogen's (BIIB) quarterly results, JPMorgan analyst Jessica Fye notes that while there seems to be limited second quarter impact to the company's and partner Ions Pharmaceuticals' (IONS) Spinraza from Novartis' (NVS) Zolgensma international revenues were down quarter over quarter for a variety of reasons despite double-digit patient growth. Overall, the analyst maintains her view that Roche (RHHBY) and PTC Therapeutics' (PTCT) Risdiplam represents a key potential competitive threat to Spinraza given the convenience of oral dosing and with filing for Risdiplam anticipated in the second half of 2019, in addition to Zolgensma's launch, Fye does not see questions related to competition for Spinraza dissipating anytime soon. The analyst reiterates a Neutral rating on Ions Pharmaceuticals' shares.

Roche upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Michael Leuchten upgraded Roche to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to CHF 300 from CHF 270. The company's legacy portfolio, built around Herceptin and Rituxan, is showing greater resilience while its "credible" neuroscience pipeline is taking shape, Leuchten tells investors in a research note. As such, he now sees Roche's business model as less challenged.

Novartis' ofatumumab to be 'strong' competitor to Roche drug, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Richard Parkes tells investors in a research note after attending the ECTRIMS conference in Stockholm that data from Novartis' (NVS) ASCLEPIOS trials suggests ofatumumab will be a "strong" competitor for Roche's (RHHBY) Ocrevus in relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis. Parkes says he expects physicians to view the drugs as having broadly comparable and highly compelling efficacy, with ofatumumab's at-home dosing an attractive option for some patients, suggesting meaningful upside potential to his current 2024E ofatumumab sales of $1.1B and possible risks to his forecasts for Roche's Ocrevus. According to physician feedback, Parkes says the drugs are likely to share a rapidly growing market. Parkes maintains a Hold rating and 90 CHF price target on Novartis shares.

Guggenheim upgrades Regeneron to Buy, says sentiment too negative
As previously reported, Guggenheim upgraded Regeneron (REGN) to Buy from Neutral as analyst Yatin Suneja noted that Eylea has maintained its dominance in the branded anti-VEGF retinal disease market despite "stiff branded competition" from Roche's (RHHBY) Lucentis and off-label use of Roche's Avastin. Eylea's expansion into new indications has resulted in a diversified business and defensible market position, argued Suneja, who also believes the Street is substantially under-appreciating the market opportunity for Dupixent, which is expected to drive significant leverage in the Sanofi (SNY) antibody collaboration that recently became profitable. Suneja raised the price target on Regeneron shares to $403 from $355.
