10:54 EDTWPI, PFE, MYL, FRX, TEVAPfizer may obtain compensation from Teva following court verdict
A federal court jury found on Friday that Pfizer's (PFE) patent for a drug known as Protonix is valid. Generic versions of Protonix, which are currently made by Israel's Teva (TEVA), India's Sun Pharma, and a company called Prasco, are used to treat ulcers. Most of the worldwide revenue from the generic version of the drug is currently obtained by Teva. In a note to investors, Cowen analysts predicted that Teva would have to pay compensation of about $400M to Pfizer. Teva was not willfully infringing the patent, since it had received a favorable preliminary injunction on the matter, and consequently would not be liable for triple damages, Cowen contends. The firm recommends that investors buy Teva on weakness today. Meanwhile, Citigroup analysts predict that the court would force Teva to pay about $652M in damages to Pfizer, but the firm predicts that such a verdict would reduce the Israeli company's 2010 profits by only $350M. However, the firm, which reiterates a Buy rating on Teva and a Hold rating on Pfizer, expects the companies to settle the matter out of court. On the other hand, Teva added that the judge could overturn the jury's verdict and invalidate Pfizer's patent. In mid-morning trading, Teva lost 1.10, or 1.78%, to $60.44, while Pfizer inched up 2c to $16.93.

06:55 EDTPFEGenocea could be takeover target after data, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff expects Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) will report positive Phase II GEN-003 post-immunization results late in Q2. GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target. Shares of the clinical-stage vaccine developer with a $227M market capitalization closed yesterday up 83c to $10.22.
