07:51 EDTPRTAWoodford calls Alkermes, Prothena selloffs 'greatly overdone'
British businessman Neil Woodford's Woodford Investment Management said it added to Alkermes (ALKS) and Prothena (PRTA) positions at what it considers to be "extremely attractive valuation levels." In its January letter to investors, the fund says the recent share price moves "look greatly overdone." Woodford also sold its position in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and initiated a new stake in Theravance Biopharma (TBPH). The company "retains a valuable economic interest in the future commercial potential of the respiratory franchise being developed in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline," the fund wrote. It also has "some very interesting, albeit earlier-stage, assets in therapeutic areas such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular & renal disease," it added. Woodford made no mention of Northwest Biotherapeutics (NWBO) in the letter, a company he invested in last year. Woodford Investment Management, established in 2014, describes itself as the "the opportunity for Neil Woodford, one of the UK's most highly-regarded fund managers, to distil his 30 years of experience and learning into a business founded on his own principles."
