Jefferies raised its price target for shares of Elan (ELN) to $19 from $14, reflecting what it sees as the value of the company in a takeout scenario. The firm says Elan management suggested they would be open to sale in the $15-$20 per share range. Jefferies believes a high taxpaying suitor could pay the upper end of that range, and lists Allergan (AGN), Regeneron (REGN), Vertex (VRTX), Alexion (ALXN), Zoetis (ZTS), Mylan (MYL) and Perrigo (PRGO) as potential acquirers for Elan. Shares of Elan are up 13c to $13.62 in pre-market trading after Royalty Pharma announced that its buyout proposal for the company has expired.
