06:36 EDTAZNClovis rociletinib data 'good news/bad news,' says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Peter Lawson says his initial read of the new rociletinib data is "good news/bad news," which leaves his price target for Clovis unchanged. Lawson pegs the bad news as the drug losing its progression-free survival lead since the estimated PFS dropped from 12 months to 10.4 months, essentially in-line with AstraZeneca's (AZN) competing drug AZD9291. Lawson sees the good news as the "encouraging" PFS of 7.5 months in T790M-negative patients. He keeps a Buy rating on Clovis with a $100 price target.
