10:31 EDTCLDX, INCY, GILD, NPSPOppenheimer sees opportunities following biotech decline
After biotech stocks declined on Friday, Oppenheimer believes that the weakness in the sector has created a buying opportunity. The firm identifies Celldex (CLDX), Incyte (INCY) and NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP) as interesting biotech names. WHAT'S NEW: On Friday, biotech investors were concerned by a letter sent by several members of Congress to Gilead (GILD) regarding the price of its Hepatits C drug, Sovaldi, Oppenheimer analyst Dr. Boris Peaker wrote in a note to investors. However, the biotech sector's strong pricing power is unlikely to be curtailed In the near-term, Peaker believes. Since competing drugs are priced at similar levels as Sovaldi, Congress would have to lower the drugs' prices through legislation, which is unlikely to occur, Peaker forecast. Celldex's stock is attractive since its top drugs are very innovative, face no direct competition, are wholly owned by the company, and are unlikely to have biosimilars, Peaker wrote. Meanwhile, Incyte's Jakafi, a treatment for Myelofibrosis, could be used as a treatment for solid tumors following additional studies, the analyst forecast. Additionally, Jakafi is "highly innovative," and has not experienced any pricing pressures, the analyst stated. NPS' two major products, Gattex and Natpara, are both orphan drugs that provide significant benefits to patients and do not have any looming competition, Peaker said, adding that Gattex's U.S. sales should continue to be strong. Gattex is used to treat short bowel syndrome, while Natpara is supposed to treat hypoparathyroidism. Oppenheimer has Outperform ratings on all the stocks named. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Gilead fell 2.3% to $70.40, Celldex gave back 6.6% to $20.10, Incyte tumbled 5.8% to $56, and NPS sank 5.8% to $28.35.

11:00 EDTGILDMylan expands Hepatitis C licensing agreement with Gilead
Mylan (MYL) announced that its subsidiary Mylan Laboratories Limited is expanding its hepatitis C licensing agreement with Gilead Sciences (GILD) to include the non-exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute the investigational NS5A inhibitor GS-5816 and single tablet regimen of sofosbuvir/GS-5816, once approved, in 91 developing countries. The single tablet regimen is being evaluated in Phase 3 clinical studies for the treatment of all six genotypes of hepatitis C. If approved by regulatory authorities, the sofosbuvir/GS-5816 regimen would become the first all-oral single tablet regimen for all hepatitis C genotypes. A pan-genotypic therapeutic option is particularly important for developing countries, where genotype testing is often unreliable or not readily available. This agreement is in addition to the licensing and technology transfer agreement that Mylan entered into with Gilead in September 2014, which grants Mylan the non-exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute sofosbuvir and ledipasvir/sofosbuvir in 91 developing countries. Mylan also partners with Gilead on expanding access to high quality, affordable antiretrovirals for the treatment of HIV/AIDS in India and other developing countries.
