13:11 EDTPCYCPharmacyclics climbs after leukemia drug wins VA contract
Shares of drug maker Pharmacyclics (PCYC) are rallying after a federal government website revealed that the company had won a contract that could be worth up to $3.8B. However, RBC Capital is warning that the deal is not as lucrative as it sounds and will not lead analysts to significantly raise their estimates for the company. WHAT'S NEW: A contract for Phamacyclics' Imbruvica drug, a treatment for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, was disclosed earlier today. The contract from Veterans Affairs, which has an award date of September 4, was revealed in a notice posted today to Federal Business Opportunities website and has a potential value of $3.809B, according to the posting. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, RBC Capital analyst Michael Yee wrote that the news is positive, but not to the extent that the size of the deal would suggest. Pharmacyclics is indicating that the size of the deal has been significantly misrepresented, Yee reported. Additionally, the order may not be a major surprise to analysts, since it is expected that the government will place orders for oncology drugs, he stated. Although Pharmacyclics is on pace to beat third quarter expectations, the order revealed today is unlikely to lead analysts to significantly raise their estimates, Yee stated. He kept a Sector Perform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Pharmacyclics advanced 5.5% to $125.
