11:21 EDTINCYIncyte rises after competitor drug put on hold by FDA
Shares of Incyte (INCY) are rising after a competitor's myelofibrosis drug was placed on full clinical hold by the FDA. WHAT'S NEW: CTI BioPharma (CTIC) announced Tuesday night that it received notice from the FDA that its Investigational New Drug Application for pacritinib had been placed on full clinical hold. Under the full clinical hold, all patients currently on pacritinib must discontinue the drug immediately and no patients can be enrolled or start pacritinib as initial or crossover treatment. CTI BioPharma withdrew its New Drug Application until the company has had a chance to review the safety and efficacy data from the PERSIST-2 Phase 3 clinical trial and decide next steps. Previously, on February 8, CTI BioPharma had announced the drug was on partial clinical hold. ANALYST REACTION: Leerink analyst Michael Schmidt said that while he didn't view CTI BioPharma's pacritinib as a significant threat to Incyte's Jakafi franchise in myelofibrosis, he believes the "surprising" setback of a potential competitor should remove a small overhang on Incyte shares. Leerink has an Outperform rating and $118 price target on Incyte shares. Meanwhile, CTI BioPharma was downgraded by analysts at Piper Jaffray, WallachBeth and Ladenburg. Among them, WallachBeth's Bob Ai downgraded CTI to Sell with a 0c price target, saying he sees no reason to hold the stock. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Incyte gained 3.4% to $74.71 in late morning trading, while shares of CTI BioPharma plunged 41% to 29c.

08:08 EDTINCYIncyte selloff a buying opportunity, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Michael Schmidt recommends using today's pullback in shares of Incyte after the company announced its decision to stop one arm of its ongoing Phase II trial of ruxolitinib in metastatic colorectal cancer due to futility as a buying opportunity. The study is one of several ongoing trials to evaluate ruxolitinib in various solid tumor indications, the analyst points out. He says that while the news is disappointing, the stock's current valuation reflects very little if any value for ruxolitinib in solid tumor indications. Schmidt lowered his price target for Incyte shares to $118 from $135 and reiterates an Outperform rating on the name. The stock is down 13%, or $9.98, to $65.01 in pre-market trading.
07:43 EDTINCYIncyte weakness creates buying opportunity, says Oppenheimer
After Incyte announced that it would stop a Phase-2 study of Ruxolitinib plus regorafenib for R/R metastatic colorectal cancer and high-CRP patients due to insufficient efficacy, Oppenheimer says the data makes the drug's anti-inflammatory properties in solid tumors questionable. However, the firm did not previously include revenue from the drug outside of pancreatic cancer in its estimates. The firm keeps a $129 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.
