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.

After interviewing small groups of New York City area dermatologists, Bernstein believes that Celgene's psoriasis,treatment, Otezla, has a growing opportunity, due to its oral dosing, convenience, and lack of immunosuppression. The firm quotes doctors as saying that the drug serves as a useful "stepping stone," for patients who might need more intensive therapy, but want to postpone or avoid biologic Bernstein keeps a $158 price target and Outperform rating on Celgene.
