08:41 EDTGILDAttack on Gilead Sovaldi by Express Scripts 'noise,' says Maxim
After Bloomberg reported that Express Scripts (ESRX) said that it would attempt to build a coalition against the use of Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi once a rival drug is approved, Maxim views Express Scripts' statement as "noise." The firm says that Sovaldi is not the most expensive HCV drug, and reiterates its view that Sovaldi provides "compelling" value, when including the cost of failure rates in a cost/benefit analysis. Maxim keeps a Buy rating on Gilead.

10:45 EDTCELGMylan rises despite Meda rejecting takeover offer
Mylan (MYL) shares are higher this morning following a Financial Times report of its desire to buy Swedish rival Meda. Subsequent to the story being published, Meda confirmed it had been in talks with Mylan but rejected the company's takeover offer. WHAT'S NEW: The Financial Times reported that Mylan was considering buying Meda, a Swedish drugmaker, in a deal that would create a $23B+ pharmaceuticals business. Mylan reportedly hired advisers to put a deal together for Meda, and though the value of a deal was not noted, sources said Mylan was likely to pay a "significant" premium to Meda's market value, which was $4.5B at the end of trading on Thursday. Mylan's market value currently stands at $18.5B. A combination of the drugmakers would create a company with annual revenues of around $9B, the FT said, noting that would be half the size of generic drug rival Teva (TEVA). WHAT'S NOTABLE: Meda's board of directors confirmed that it was contacted by Mylan regarding a proposal to merge the companies, but the board decided to reject the proposal. Meda said all discussions between the company and Mylan have been terminated "without further actions." ANALYST REACTION: Citigroup upgraded Mylan to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target on the stock to $61 from $52 this morning. The firm cited potential operational and tax benefits from an acquisition of Meda, stating that in addition to expanding Mylan's geographic presence, the deal would increase its presence in specialty, OTC and branded generics. OTHER NEWS: Mylan sued Celgene (CELG) to block that company's efforts to keep generic versions of Revlimid and Thalomid off the market, Reuters reported. PRICE ACTION: Mylan shares are up $2.98, or 5.98%, to $52.84 in mid-morning trading.
