    2 Falling Pharma Stocks Whose Star May Rise in 2019

    Here are two pharmaceutical companies that are presently being downgraded by analysts but that are expected to gain strength as the year progresses. It’s an inversion of the axiom, “Past performance is not guarantee of future results.” The risk of investing in them may be large but so are the potential rewards for farsighted investors. AbbVieAbbVie (ABBV) has been experiencing a drop in its shares for the last several months. The major reason for its decline is its biologic immunology drug Humira accounting for the biggest part of its revenue.Humira sales have been weaker lately. Rated as one of the top-selling drugs in 2018, Humira started losing a competition with cheaper medicines in 2019. In the first quarter of this year, it brought in revenue of $4.45 billion, which is 5.6% less than the company’s last year revenue.AbbVie faced other setbacks. Its cancer drug Rova-T failed to become a great commercial success. AbbVie’s testing of Venclexta, a multiple myeloma drug, was not successful either and negatively affected its stock. Over the past 12 months, AbbVie’s shares dipped 14%. Its net earnings decreased to $1.65 per share in the first quarter of 2019, from $1.74 per share a year earlier.On June 25, AbbVie announced a definitive agreement to acquire Allergan (AGN) in a cash and stock transaction for a total consideration of $63 billion. The news worked to its financial disadvantage. As soon as AbbVie’s intentions became known, its stock sank 16%, because investors estimated its plans as a mistake. When investors recovered from the news, AbbVie’s stock went up - but only slightly so. As a result, for the last six months, analysts have strongly been advising to put any investment in AbbVie on hold. As of writing, the average price given by analysts to the company’s shares is $79.33, with only 10.95% upside. Yet there are positive signs that AbbVie can soon stop its downward progression. It has recently signed lucrative deals with Mylan NV and Amgen Inc (AMGN). It is also working on a new cancer drug called Imbruvica. The drug may help move abnormal B cells out of their nourishing environment in the lymph nodes, bone marrow, and other organs.In June, Imbruvica was ranked as the fifth drug thought to become a blockbuster in the near future. According to EvaluatePharma, AbbVie’s new drug may bring it $9.5 billion in sales in 2024. The company’s two other drugs – Orilissa and Skyrizi – are also expected to sell well and thus enlarge its profits. After the projection made by EvaluatePharma, Goldman Sachs analyst Terence Flynn increased his price target to $84. He thinks that the sales from AbbVie’s cancer drugs and new immunology drugs will generate enough revenue to balance out the losses brought by Humira. Other analysts hope for the company’s strength, too. As AbbVie approaches its Q2 earnings release, analysts expect that it will report $2.21 per share, which would represent year-over-year growth of 10.5%. The blogger Wolf Report agrees: “ I'm bullish on AbbVie. It remains one of my largest pharma stocks, and I'm willing to add more, should the opportunity present itself. And I believe that it now has, and may even improve going forward.”Analyst Ratings & Price Targets on AbbVie BiogenBiogen (BIIB) had a rough start of the year. Within the first six months of 2019, the company tumbled by 22.3%, erasing 17 billion in valuation. There are several reasons for Biogen’s unsightly decline. One is the failure of the Alzheimer’s project aducanumab. At two late-stage trials it became clear that the anti-amyloid MAb, which Biogen believed would clear amyloid lesions, could not prevent the disease.Biogen’s shares also dropped because of the competition with Novartis (NVS). Its drug Spinraza that cures pediatric spinal muscular atrophy and generates the bulk of its profits can be upstaged by Novartis’s recently approved medicine Zolgensma. The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) said in January that Zolgensma, which also treats spinal muscular atrophy in small children, could be more cost-effective than Biogen’s drug with a one-time price of $2 million. Biogen’s multiple-sclerosis franchise also failed to live up to its promise, undermined by a competition with such companies as Roches and Novartis. A preferable alternative to Biogen’s main MS medicines, Tysarabi and Tecfidera, Roches’ drug Ocrevus has been diminishing Biogen’s profits since the third quarter of 2017. This year, the competition between the MS medicine producers intensified, when Novartis introduced Mayzent that costs about $88,500 a year. This is about 7% less than Biogen’s Tysarabi and Tecfidera.But Biogen still has several ongoing medical trials to its credit. It is presently developing its next MS medicine Vumerity, whose approval might happen later this year. Investors may also follow Biogen’s earlier-stage pipeline for inherited disease of the eye, pain management, and cardiovascular disease. Biogen might also make several acquisitions in 2019. There are rumors that its recent purchase of Nightstar Therapeutics, a gene therapy company, will be followed by other acquisitions. Analysts suggest that such companies as Neurocrine Bioscience (NBIX), Sage Therapeutics (SAGE), and Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS) would enhance Biogen’s holdings. But even if no additional purchase is made, Nightstar Therapeutics can become for Biogen a useful springboard for building an eye disease franchise that will push its profit up in the coming several years. True, some analysts advise not to invest in Biogen for the time being, but there are others who are bullish on its stock. H.C. Wainwright analyst Andrew Fein maintains a Buy rating on Biogen, with a price target of $300. Analyst Ratings & Price Targets on Biogen Inc
