07:49 EDTTEVA, IPXL, ENDP, ACTFDA decision on Opana a modest positive for Impax, says Leerink
Leerink views the FDA's denial of Endo's (ENDP) Citizen Petition as a modest positive for Impax (IPXL), which it notes is the sole holder of 180 day exclusivity on generic Opana. However, Leerink says upside for Impax will be limited as Actavis (ACT), Sandoz, and Teva (TEVA) have settlements to enter the market starting in June 2013 when Impax's 180-day generic exclusivity expires.

08:31 EDTACTSalix takeout price could be $200 per share, says Leerink
Leerink estimates a takeout valuation for Salix (SLXP) of $200 per share, but says it would start recommending investors take profits above $185. The firm believes a potential deal with Allergan (AGN) would likely include an above-average break-up fee. Leerink thinks a competitive bid could surface, and points out Actavis (ACT) has more overlapping cost structure with Salix than Allergan. Shares of Salix are up 9% to $173.48 in pre-market trading after Wall Street Journal reported the company is in merger talks with Allergan.

07:02 EDTENDPAuxilium now more likely to be acquired, says RBC Capital
After the U.S. Treasury announced a crackdown on tax inversion deals, RBC Capital thinks that, as a result, Auxilium's (AUXL) proposed takeover of QLT will not occur. The firm believes that instead Auxilium will be acquired by already inverted Endo (ENDP) or another pharmaceutical company. The firm expects Endo to raise its bid for Auxilium to $30-$35, and it keeps an Outperform rating on Auxilium.
06:40 EDTACTPiper says don't dismiss potential Pfizer bid for Actavis
Piper Jaffray says it would not be dismissive of Pfizer (PFE) as a potential acquirer of Actavis (ACT). Piper believes Pfizer's public M&A comments are supportive of Actavis' exposure to complex generics and emerging markets. The firm views Actavis shares as attractively valued, irrespective of the acquisition chatter. It reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock with a $280 price target.

Auxilium (AUXL) announced that its board has reviewed the unsolicited, non-binding and conditional proposal from Endo (ENDP) and, after consulting with its independent financial and legal advisors, has unanimously determined it is not a superior proposal under the terms of its existing merger agreement with QLT Inc.
