10:31 EDTGILD, CLDX, NPSP, INCYOppenheimer 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.

07:21 EDTGILDGilead 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.
