12:55 EDTACHN, GILD, ABTAchillion drops after competitors report promising HCV data
Achillion (ACHN), which is developing a hepatitis C virus, or HCV, treatment, is retreating after two other companies reported that their HCV treatments had performed well in tests. Gilead (GILD) reported that it did not detect HCV in the RNA of 25 HCV patients four weeks after they were treated with the company's investigational drug. Meanwhile, Abbott (ABT) said that its HCV treatment, SVR12, had produced "high sustained viral response rates" in patients. In a note to investors earlier today, Deutsche Bank analyst Alethia Young wrote that she expects Gilead to obtain 65% of the HCV market, but she predicts that Achillion will garner a 15% share. Moreover, the analyst believes that Achillion's treatment is simpler and better than that of Abbott. She thinks that the decline in Achillion's stock today is overdone, and recommends buying the shares on weakness. Similarly, Wells Fargo analyst Brian Abraham believes that Achillion's data suggests that its treatment could be as good as or better than that of Abbott’s. Achillion is well-positioned to participate in the HCV market, and today's weakness has created an attractive entry point in the stock, he wrote. In early afternoon trading, Achillion slumped $1.06, or 11.76%, to $7.91.
