12:06 EDTCELGCelgene climbs after analyst spotlights underappreciated opportunities
Shares of Celgene (CELG) are climbing after research firm BMO Capital wrote that several of the drug maker's less prominent opportunities could each generate more than $1B in revenue. WHAT'S NEW: Although most investors are focusing on the outlook for Celgene's Revlimid drug as a treatment for myeloma, a number of Celgene's other opportunities could generate combined revenue that is several times greater than the sales that the company could generate from that drug in that indication, BMO Capital analyst Dr. Jim Birchenough wrote. Among these other opportunities are Celgene's GED-0301 drug as a treatment for Crohn's, its Otezla drug as a treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis, and its demcizumab drug for solid tumors, the analyst explained. Additionally, Revlimid could be approved for treating other diseases, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the analyst forecast. Several of Celgene's mid-to-late stage drugs could each generate more than $1B in sales and they could cumulatively amount to several times the value of the opportunity of Revlimid as a treatment for myeloma, Birchenough stated. He kept a $110.50 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Also upbeat on Celgene recently was Barron's. The stock looks like a buy, Barron's stated on June 19, citing Celgene's stock split and share buybacks along with its long-term EPS outlook. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Celgene rose 2.4% to $87.90.

13:36 EDTCELGBiotech 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.
