Alexion execution 'remains undervalued,' says William Blair

William Blair analyst Raju Prasad says Alexion Pharmaceuticals' execution "remains undervalued" following the company's Q3 results. The company continues to diversify its pipeline through expansion into new indications and business development deals, resulting in 22 development programs across 11 assets, Prasad tells investors in a research note. He believes Alexion has the potential to address over 15 different indications spanning ultra rare and rare diseases and addressing sizable patient populations. With 10 potential launches by 2023, the next two years are expected to be "catalyst-rich," contends Prasad, who keeps an Outperform rating on Alexion shares.

Piper likes Alexion acquisition of Achillion, remains buyer of shares
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond keeps an Overweight rating on Alexion Pharmaceuticals (ALXN) with a $180 price target after this morning's announced acquisition of Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN). The deal brings in danicopan, an oral Factor D inhibitor, as combination therapy with Soliris for the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria and monotherapy for C3 glomerulopathy, and ACH-5228, a second generation oral Factor D inhibitor, expected to enter the clinic early next year, Raymond tells investors in a research note. The analyst likes the deal. Achillion has already shown proof of concept in PNH and strategically the company adds to the diversification of Alexion's pipeline, says Raymond. The analyst remains a buyer of Alexion shares.

Alexion reinstated with a Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Geoff Meacham reinstated coverage of Alexion Pharmaceuticals with a Buy rating and $130 price target. "Noise" around complement competition has overshadowed Alexion's "strong" fundamentals, driven by its Soliris/Ultomiris franchise, Meacham tells investors in a research note. The analyst likes the stock's risk/reward profile given the company's "differentiated" growth and "discounted" valuation.

Achillion acquisition by Alexion 'makes logical sense,' says SVB Leerink
SVB Leerink analyst Joseph Schwartz downgraded Achillion (ACHN) to Market Perform from Outperform with a price target of $6.30, up from $5. In a research note to investors, Schwartz says he thinks Alexion's (ALXN) proposed acquisition of Achillion makes logical sense as it brings highly complementary assets that can deliver a broader market opportunity together at a time "when the complement space could get more competitive." The analyst thinks the deal will close without any competing bids.

Piper a buyer of Alexion after 'another quarter of flawless execution'
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond said he remains a buyer of shares of Alexion following what he describes as "yet another beat/raise quarter with near flawless execution both commercially and developmentally." Despite similar results in the past several quarters, the stock "has languished," which Raymond attributes to what he views as overblown concerns regarding the tail trajectory for the company's C5 inhibitor franchise. However, Raymond contends that Ultomiris conversion is "well ahead of schedule," which the company is coupling "with an almost breathtaking pace of BD-driven pipeline diversification." He maintains an Overweight rating and $180 price target on Alexion shares.
