01:43 EDTVRX, ABT, GILDVertex Pharmaceuticals offers investors few catalysts, Barron's says
Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRX) was once a Wall Street darling, but sales of its blockbuster hepatitis C drug, Incivek, are falling. And as Incivek sales keep falling, many worry that Vertex may start losing money next year. Q3 results disappointed investors. And shares sank Friday, as Goldman Sachs analyst Terence Flynn downgraded the stock to a Sell. The worry is that experimental cystic fibrosis drugs now in development may not prove to be potent enough to help patients. Also, Gilead Sciences (GILD) and Abbott Laboratories (ABT) have rival hepatitis C drugs in phase three trials, which Vertex won't start until 2014. Barron's contends that Vertex faces challenges that make the stock unattractive even at a marked-down price. Reference Link

07:21 EDTGILDGilead could be hurt by new HCV drugs, says Wells Fargo
Noting that data on a new Merck (MRK) HCV treatment is expected in November, Wells Fargo thinks Merck's HCV drug could be combined with Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi to shorten the duration of treatment to four weeks. Other companies could take similar actions, and Gilead's per patient revenues would be significantly reduced if this occurs, the firm warned. However, it continues to have an upbeat outlook on Gilead heading into what it sees as a strong quarter and is still upbeat on the company's long-term HCV opportunity. It keeps an Outperform rating on Gilead.

Valeant (VRX) has contacted both the Autorite des marches financiers in Quebec and the SEC regarding Allergan (AGN) apparent attempt to "mislead investors and manipulate the market for Valeant common shares by continuing to make false and misleading statements regarding Valeant's business despite Valeant's public statements correcting such information." The latest statements were made last Friday when Allergan asserted in an SEC filing that Bausch + Lomb's pharmaceutical sales were stagnant or declining. Valeant's decision to contact the authorities also reflects concerns raised by several Canadian Valeant shareholders about comments made about Valeant by Allergan's management during recent meetings with these investors in Canada.
