13:32 EDTPFEBiotechs plummet with TPP seen as industry negative
Biotechs are falling intraday after reports that the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, has language that the exclusivity period for bioligics, or drugs derived from a biological sources, would be eight years, less than the twelve years it is currently in the United States. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In the U.S., biologics are protected from competition by follow-on products for twelve years from the time they are first granted marketing approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a protection that is distinct from patent protection. Recent reports on the TPP suggest that the protection will last five years with an additional safety monitoring period of up to three years before a biosimilar can be registered, which would effectively be an eight year exclusivity period. ANALYST REACTION: Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer, however, said the development is a "step forward," especially since it does not overrule the 12 years' exclusivity for the drugs in the U.S. While the sector asked for twelve years' exclusivity to match the U.S., eight years is a "reasonable compromise," the analyst argued. His top picks were Alexion (ALXN), Celgene (CELG), and Amgen (AMGN) in the large-cap space, GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH) and bluebird bio (BLUE) among mid-caps, and Flex Pharma (FLKS), Lion Biotechnologies (LBIO), Otonomy (OTIC), and Ignyta (RXDX) in the small-cap sector. Further, Schimmer stated that more names look "increasingly compelling" amid the selloff. NOTABLE DECLINERS: Alexion is lower by 2.53%, Celgene is down 4.32%, Amgen is declining 1.91%, Biogen (BIIB) is down 3.4%, and Gilead Sciences (GILD) is falling 2.22%. STOCKS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the pharmaceutical space include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).

Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said he views the news that Spark Therapeutics (ONCE) "highly anticipated" SPK-RPE65 Phase 3 gene therapy study for congenital blindness met its primary endpoint as a positive for the ophthalmology gene therapy field as well as the broader gene therapy sector. Schimmer added that Applied Genetic Technologies' (AGTC) early clinical data in the second half of this year will be a further test of the ophthalmology gene therapy platform. The analyst noted that other companies with gene therapy programs include Avalanche (AAVL), Biogen (BIIB), bluebird bio (BLUE), BioMarin (BMRN), Cellectis (CLLS), Medgenics (MDGN), uniQure (QURE), Pfizer (PFE), Regeneron (REGN) and Sangamo (SGMO).

08:16 EDTPFEPfizer upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley upgraded Pfizer to Overweight and raised its price target to $38 from $35. Analyst David Risinger expects revenue growth to turn positive in 2016 after years of declines and said Pfizer has a strong balance sheet to take advantage of weakness in the pharma and biotech sectors. Risinger sees share upside with limited downside risk as fundamentals improve and management takes advantage of its strong financial position.
