Raymond James analyst Laura Chico downgraded BioGen to Market Perform following the latest MS survey feedback that continues to show headwinds to the franchise. The doctors surveyed anticipate Roche's Ocrevus market share will more than double from current 3% to 7.7% by Q1 2018 as many view it as a safer, more efficacious alternative versus Tysabri. The analyst said MS headwinds are not new but his derived fair value for Biogen of $329 leaves little upside to where shares currently trade.

Stifel analyst Thomas Shrader upgraded Biogen to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $415 from $300. The biopharmaceutical company closed yesterday down $1.96 to $335.68. The analyst says he likes what he sees at Biogen again. In a research note titled "MS not imploding, R&D output exploding, Investors should be Reloading," Shrader calls Ocrelizumab a "remarkable drug" that should see a "measured" commercial rollout. Spinraza will eventually be routinely paired with gene therapy while Biogen's large number of additional programs "will increasingly be worth following," the analyst contends. Further, Shrader believes aducanumab's lack of clinical holds suggest that the drug "is safe enough to be used albeit with a slow commercial ramp."
