Stifel analyst Derek Archila noted that ICER, an independent and non-partisan research organization that analyzes the benefits along with costs of treatments, issued a draft report assessing the value and effectiveness of Aimmune's (AIMT) AR101 and DBV Technologies' (DBVT) Viaskin peanut for peanut allergy. He believes ICER's cost-effectiveness analysis re-affirms his cautious approach on the peanut immunotherapy category and believes the report presents a modest headwind for the stocks. However, this was only a draft report in which ICER made assumptions for costs since no official pricing has been announced for either therapy, Archlia noted. He maintains Hold ratings on both Aimmune and DBV Technologies.

Goldman Sachs analyst Graig Suvannavejh started DBV Technologies (DBVT) with a Buy rating and $14 price target. DBVT is a late-stage specialty biotech company, with a proprietary technology platform that could be used to treat a range of food allergies, Suvannavejh tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees 66% upside from current share levels given the potential catalysts over the next 18 months, which include the Biologics License Applications re-filing in Q3 and FDA acceptance in Q4, a potential panel hearing in mid-2020, and likely final U.S. approval by the end of 2020. Suvannavejh sees an 85% probability of success for DBV's Viaskin Peanut and views the treatment as a more compelling option versus Aimmune's (AIMT) AR101 on overall safety and product presentation profiles.
