Performance of Opdivo and the impending acquisition of Celgene Corporation will be key areas of focus for the investors, when Bristol-Myers (BMY) reports first-quarter results.
MISSISSAUGA, ON , April 22, 2019 /CNW/ - Biogen Canada welcomes the decision made by the Government of Saskatchewan allowing patients living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) to access SPINRAZA™(nusinersen), the first and only approved medicine in the world to treat the root cause of SMA.
Roche's (RHHBY) performance in the first quarter of 2019 is driven by solid strength of new drugs, which more than offset competition from biosimilars.
Biogen (BIIB) possesses the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely earnings beat in its upcoming report. Get prepared with the key expectations.
The South San Francisco company is putting its IPO where its mouth is — hoping to take its lead drug, targeting a tooth-loss-causing bacteria that migrates from the mouth to the brain, into a Phase II/III clinical trial soon.
Adults with later-onset spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) who are not being treated show increased rates of hospital admissions, clinical interventions and mortality, indicating an.
If you're asking whether or not to buy Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL) stock, the answer is, "it depends." But if you're a risk-tolerant investor in search of an up-and-coming biotech doing more than a few things right, it's time to consider buying EXEL stock. Let me explain.Source: Shutterstock If there is ever going to be a so-called perfect investment, you wouldn't expect it to be a smaller-capitalization biotechnology company like Exelixis. But that's really a generalization against a group of notoriously volatile stocks most investors need to think twice about before investing in. But that's not the situation with EXEL stock.The group as a whole has a backdrop of unstable financials, FDA approvals, the next drug trial finally being "the big one" or keeping larger competitors such as a Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) or Merck (NYSE:MRK) at bay. EXEL stock has defied those odds since mid-2016, when its kidney cancer blockbuster Cabometyx was approved.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAgain, that's not to say EXEL stock is the perfect investment. Bottom line, those types of risks don't simply vanish. But for now, this $7.2 billion market cap stock with its attractive forward P/E of 17.6, 0.5 PEG ratio and priced at 8.5x sales is in a strong position with the success of Cabometyx and sports a solid development pipeline which may just yet, make Exelixis a household name. EXEL Stock Weekly Price Chart Looking at the weekly chart of EXEL stock and despite some of the aforementioned volatility associated with smaller-cap biotechs, it's obvious Wall Street is also a buyer of what Exelixis has accomplished thus far -- and what appears to be a promising future. * 10 Dow Jones Stocks Holding the Blue Chip Index Back After a successful corrective challenge of prior lateral resistance and 62% retracement level from EXEL stock's 2015 low to 2018 cycle high last October, shares have been trending higher in the right side of a cup-shaped weekly base. That's bullish, and that's not all.Now and with EXEL consolidating the past month in-between the 50%-62% levels, a potential breakout and assault on the prior high of $32.50 before moving to new all-time-highs is setting up for purchasing. Buying EXEL StockFor investors agreeable with the risks discussed, the recommendation is to wait for a breakout. Without clearing the 62% retracement level, which has acted as price resistance thus far, there is a greater likelihood EXEL stock's uptrend could fail until proper price confirmation reveals itself.Not that a technical failure in this case is a bad thing. A turn lower in the share price of Exelixis could lead to an eventual double-bottom challenge. But I'd rather be a buyer of EXEL stock initiating a new position as it tests support than an investor long shares on the way down.Having said that, buying EXEL stock above $25.41 and 10 cents above last month's high within the consolidation pattern is the approach I'd use for entering into a long position. And again, as risks don't simply go away, a blended stop below $23.37 makes sense. This exit contains risk to 8% and allows for enough technical wiggle room while putting oneself in a stronger position to buy EXEL during potentially much more challenging and opportunistic times ahead.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.

A German artificial-intelligence firm had come to a different conclusion. Innoplexus AG, a closely held company based in the outskirts of Frankfurt, uses an algorithm to analyze pharma companies’ drug pipelines that it says takes more data and context into account than any other tool. Its assessment of Biogen’s aducanumab gave about a 70 percent to 90 percent chance that the trial would miss its goal.
Last month, Biogen Inc (NASDAQ: BIIB ) halted Phase 3 trials for aducanumab in March based on results of a futility analysis conducted by an independent data monitoring committee. While the remaining ...

Sarissa is seeking to cross the $1 billion mark in assets under management by attracting new investors at a time when demand for hedge funds is picking up again. Scale is important for firms like Sarissa, which pressure companies to adopt their proposals and give them board seats.
Biogen Inc should slash the price of its spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) drug, and the $4 million to $5 million Novartis has said its experimental gene therapy for the disease is worth is excessive, an independent U.S. organization that reviews the value of medical treatments said on Wednesday. Assessments by the nonprofit Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) have become increasingly influential in U.S. drug pricing and are taken into consideration by health insurers and pharmacy benefit managers making decisions about payments and patient access to treatments. Boston-based ICER has been looking at Biogen's Spinraza and Novartis' Zolgensma since last year.
