06:55 EDTNVSGenocea could be takeover target after data, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff expects Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) will report positive Phase II GEN-003 post-immunization results late in Q2. GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target. Shares of the clinical-stage vaccine developer with a $227M market capitalization closed yesterday up 83c to $10.22.

15:54 EDTNVSGlaxo CEO defends strategy, warns of risks of chasing higher prices, FT says
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) CEO Andrew Witty defends the company's shift in focus from high-priced prescription drugs to higher volume, but lower priced, products, warning that chasing ever-higher prices risks undermining the industry and may create "its own tension that leads to some kind of change,” reported Financial Times, citing an interview. Witty acknowledges the company's asset swap with Novartis (NVS) opens the door to a potential break up, but argues there are benefits to keeping pharmaceuticals, vaccines and consumer goods together and there would be “no logic” in a split at this early time after the Novartis deal, the report added.

09:24 EDTSFLYBaird sees risk of pullback in Yelp with no deal
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors this morning that shares of Yelp are at risk of a pullback if a takeover is not consummated "within the relatively near future." Sebastian, while stating Yelp's content and review database could make an attractive acquisition candidate for a "number of platform companies," writes that the risk/reward is "roughly balanced" following last week's rally amid reports of a potential buyout. The analyst cautions that a sales process, as the Wall Street Journal reported Yelp is undertaking, does not guarantee a transaction, as Shutterfly (SFLY) recently showed. With a deal not consummating in the near term, Sebastian sees "increasing risks" in owning Yelp shares above the $50 level. The stock closed Friday at $49.93. Sebastian has a Neutral rating on Yelp with a $46 price target.
