Hold
Madrigal Pharmaceuticals initiated with a Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst Derek Archila initiated Madrigal Pharmaceuticals (MDGL) with a Hold rating and $126 price target, stating that he is positively biased heading into Phase 3 amid emerging evidence that point to the possibility resmetirom could demonstrate a benefit on fibrosis over time. However, he thinks the stock could be volatile around updates from competitors such as Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) and Genfit (GNFT) and sees few catalysts specific to Madrigal to drive shares up in the next 12-18 months, Archila tells investors.

Buy
Viking Therapeutics initiated with a Buy at Stifel

He is confident that the FDA will allow Viking to initiate a Phase 2b study in biopsy proven non-alcoholic steatohepatitis patients, Archila tells investors.

Viking posting for VOYAGER includes 'nothing concerning,' says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Joon Lee said he sees "nothing concerning" in the ClinicalTrials.gov posting for Viking Therapeutics' VOYAGER study, stating that the inclusion criteria is "minimally restrictive." He also heard some investors voice concern that the study may only be six months, but he spoke with the company's CEO, who confirmed it will be a 12 month study. The analyst, who thinks confusion about the study may have lead to share weakness in recent days, reiterates a Buy rating on Viking shares.
