Product sales were $5.20B (-8% q/q), matching our $5.16B and consensus $5.2B ests. Mgmt had guided for 12-14% sequential decline. All annual guidance unch.

Filgotinib MAA to be submitted 3Q19, but no update yet on strategy/ timing for NDA submission. NASH ATLAS drug combination trial results expected 4Q19 (unch). HOLD." (5/6/2019)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "NTLA reported 1Q results of $10.4M in collaboration revenue, $34M in -$0.49 vs consensus EPS of -$0.57. 1Q cash balance was $296.6M, which management estimates will fund operations into 1H 2021. The call included several updates on the pipeline in in-vivo editing and ex-vivo engineered T-Cells: 1) NTLA remains on track for NDA submission of NTLA-2001 for ATTR in 2020 and preparations (manufacturing & toxicology) are ongoing. 2) Data presented at ASGCT was the first demonstration of CRISPR/Cas9-based targeted insertion in the liver of non-human primates. We view this as a validation of NTLA’s modular LNP+AAV approach to in-vivo editing. 3) ASGCT presentation on engineered cell therapy (WT1 insertion into >95% of isolated T-cells) shows progress in cell therapy." (5/3/2019)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gilead’s HIV franchise maintains momentum, driven by continued uptake of Genvoya and Odefsey, and the rapid adoption of Biktarvy. However, the company’s HCV franchise continues to witness a slowdown across key markets, including the United States and Europe, as a result of competition and pricing pressure. Consequently, Gilead shifted focus to its HIV franchise, and newer avenues like CAR-T therapy and NASH. However, the company suffered a setback with the failure of a late-stage study on selonsertib in patients with compensated cirrhosis (F4) due to NASH. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past three months." (5/2/2019)
  • 4. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and $87 Price Target. We do not think today’s announcement that GILD’s STELLAR3 study was unsuccessful will be met with much surprise after the previous STELLAR4 failure: no changes to our estimates. The fibrosis improvement was least for the high dose and greatest for the placebo with a p-value at the higher dose of 0.42 and at lower dose it was 0.93. After both STELLAR Ph3 readouts we are focused on how Gilead will advance its strategy in NASH; we think M&A could be a strategy." (4/25/2019)
  • 5. Mizuho analysts commented, "DERM is a leading dermatology company with commercial and pipeline advancements that could drive upwards earnings revisions and the stock higher. Valuation Summary We use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to get to our 12-month price target of $25." (4/22/2019)
