06:26 EDTBMY, RHHBY, MRKBristol-Myers lung cancer trials being underestimated, says Citigroup
After building a statistical model of Bristol-Myers' two critical registration trials for Opdivo in lung cancer, Citigroup believes the market is "materially" underestimating both Phase III trials. Citi says potential Opdivo FDA approval in 2015 in lung cancer would give Bristol-Myers an up to two year lead time versus Merck (MRK) and Roche (RHHBY). The firm estimates 2023 Opdivo revenue at $7B and reiterates a Buy rating on Bristol with a $60 price target.

07:21 EDTMRKGilead could be hurt by new HCV drugs, says Wells Fargo
Noting that data on a new Merck (MRK) HCV treatment is expected in November, Wells Fargo thinks Merck's HCV drug could be combined with Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi to shorten the duration of treatment to four weeks. Other companies could take similar actions, and Gilead's per patient revenues would be significantly reduced if this occurs, the firm warned. However, it continues to have an upbeat outlook on Gilead heading into what it sees as a strong quarter and is still upbeat on the company's long-term HCV opportunity. It keeps an Outperform rating on Gilead.

07:35 EDTBMY, MRKPerrigo potential buyers list could be limited, says Jefferies
After Globes reported that Perrigo retained an investment bank to assist with a potential merger, Jefferies says the list of potential buyers could be limited since the store brand business is fundamentally a high volume, lower margin model. The firm notes U.S. companies that currently do not have large over-the-counter divisions include Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Merck (MRK). Jefferies views the merger speculation surrounding Perrigo as not surprising given the company's strong long-term fundamentals and attractive Irish domicile. It has a Buy rating on the stock with a $160 price target.

12:43 EDTBMYBristol-Myers announces plans for Q3 submission of Opdivo BLA
Bristol-Myers Squibb announced earlier that, following discussions with the FDA, the company is planning a Q3 submission of a Biologics Licensing Application for Opdivo for previously treated advanced melanoma. This will mark the second tumor type for which Bristol-Myers Squibb has a regulatory submission underway for Opdivo in the U.S. “We continue to collaborate closely with the FDA on Opdivo and the planned submission in advanced melanoma represents an important step forward in our company’s commitment to deliver innovative treatment options for patients with cancer,” said Michael Giordano, MD, Head of Oncology Development, Bristol-Myers Squibb. The advanced melanoma BLA is based on data from Checkmate -037, a multinational, multicenter, randomized open-label Phase 3 trial evaluating Opdivo compared to dacarbazine or carboplatin/paclitaxel in patients with unresectable or metastatic melanoma who have been previously treated with Yervoy and, if BRAF-mutation positive, a BRAF inhibitor regimen. Bristol-Myers Squibb has proposed the name Opdivo, which, if approved by health authorities, will serve as the trade name for nivolumab.
