01:43 EDTVRX, GILD, ABTVertex 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

09:01 EDTGILDVA negotiated $594 per dose price for Gilead HCV treatment
A Veterans Health Administration official told a Senate committee yesterday that Veterans' Affairs has "moved rapidly to deploy new, more effective, less toxic HCV treatments and has been able to negotiate significant discounts for these newer therapies." The agency negotiated a price of $594 per dose for Gilead's (GILD) Hepatitis C virus drug Sofosbuvir, below the commercial price of $1,000 per dose, VHA Chief Consultant for Pharmacy Benefits Management Michael Valentino told the Senate's Committee on Veterans' Affairs. The agency also received a $413 per dose price for Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) Simeprevir, below the commerical price of $790. The VA has approximately 174,000 veterans in care with HCV, making it the largest single HCV provider in the U.S., Valentino pointed out. He added, "Like the rest of the country, VA has treated only a portion of Veterans for HCV because treatment and cures have been difficult to achieve due to low efficacy and high toxicity of standard drug therapies."
