Amgen (AMGN) declined to exercise its option on BIND Therapeutics' Accurin technology following completion of the collaboration.

The firm maintains its Outperform rating but lowers its price target to $20 from $21.

13:53 EDTAMGNAnthem has not made coverage decision about Amgen's Repatha, Bloomberg reports
Bloomberg cites an emailed statement from Anthem (ANTM) regarding Amgen's (AMGN) Repatha injection, which was approved last night by the FDA as an option for some patients who are unable to get their low-density lipoprotein cholesterol under control with current treatment options.
08:01 EDTAMGNAmgen pricing for Repatha competitive with Praluent, says Piper Jaffray
After the FDA announced last night that it has approved Amgen's (AMGN) Repatha injection, Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said that the drug's indications seem "generally in line" with those for Praluent from Regeneron (REGN) and Sanofi (SNY). Amgen disclosed an annual WAC of $14,100 for Repatha, which the analyst notes is about $500 per year below Praluent, but Schimmer said that the actual recognized price for each will ultimately be determined by discounting. Schimmer also noted that Amgen said it is working with payers and other purchasers on "innovative pricing programs," though he is uncertain if that means the company is working on a kind of "pay per performance" scheme. The analyst, who believes the market will prove large enough for both treatments, keeps a $200 price target and Overweight rating on Amgen shares.

13:36 EDTAMGNBiotech correction presents some opportunities, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Michael Yee said he won't try to pick the short-term bottom in biotech, but contends that any macro weakness in China shouldn't have any major impact to financials or fundamentals for the sector given their minimal exposure there. If the market continues to be volatile, Yee recommends a focus on names with defensive characteristics, such as higher margins and free cash flow yield, naming Amgen (AMGN), Celgene (CELG) and Gilead (GILD) as some examples. The analyst adds that he likes Vertex (VRTX) on the pullback for "more aggressive" growth investors. Yee has Outperform ratings on all of the stocks mentioned above.
