Ratio collar in Achillion adds to positions opened last week

Ratio collar in Achillion adds to positions opened last week. Trader on the PHLX paid 40c for 25K Dec 5 puts and sold 30K Dec20 7 calls for 6c, tied to a $6.11 delta hedge. Appears to add to similar flow last week when a customer bought 50K Dec 5 puts for 37.5c and sold 30K Dec20 7 calls 15c and sold 30K March 7 calls for a dime vs 3M shares $6.195. Combined, the 75K dec 5 puts may hedge 7.5M shares with the cost partly offset by the sale of 60K Dec20 7 calls and 30K March 7 calls.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Yeti (YETI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexandra Walvis saying the company's "strong" sales and brand momentum are now better understood by investors. 2. Electronic Arts (EA) downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on valuation with analyst Eric Handler saying the risk-reward on the stock appears to be "less compelling." 3. Cognizant (CTSH) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair, to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan, to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs, to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer, to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc, to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush and to Hold from Strong Buy at Needham after the company's earnings and guidance missed consensus estimates. 4. Target (TGT) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst Brandon Fletcher saying he thinks Target's continued emphasis on growth over cost containment is a "less wise" stance at this point. 5. Achillion (ACHN) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Geoffrey Meacham seeing a lack of near- to mid-term catalysts that are capable of changing the story on the stock. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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.

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.
