Another Pharmaceutical Giant Is Born
Image Source: AbbVie Inc – IR Presentation. The combination of AbbVie and Allergan seems to have been born out of the need to do something, anything, considering how dependent AbbVie is on Humira and Allergan is on Botox. We find the transaction interesting as it ties into our view that Big Pharma will continue getting bigger and bigger while the field gets smaller, but this doesn’t change on view on either Allergan or AbbVie. We aren’t considering shares of either company at this time.

Galapagos’ Filgotinib Scores Major Win for Gilead Sciences
Image Source: Gilead second quarter earnings presentation. Filgotinib posted stellar data in a recent phase 3 trial for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. In light of the data, we feel Galapagos and, by extension of their commercial partnership, Gilead Sciences possess a best in class molecule in immunology.

Pfizer: Lots of Moving Parts in a Generally-Inspiring Second Quarter
Image Source: Pfizer. We came away generally impressed with the progress at Pfizer during the second quarter as the company begins to replace its current patent protected line-up with next-generation treatments. Pfizer continues to gain political favor with its decision to forgo price hikes on its product line-up while announcing a re-organization of the business structure.

AbbVie’s Outlook Remains Blurred
Image Source: Global Panorama. We remain bearish on the outlook for AbbVie as we do not believe the clinical pipeline will be able to adequately offset the loss of revenue when key product Humira loses patent protection beginning in October as a biosimilar enters the European market.

What Are the Downside Risks of Gilead Sciences?
We think the risk-reward at Gilead remains positively skewed in investors’ favor, but let’s examine the downside case for Gilead Sciences so there are no surprises. It’s always a good approach to evaluate where an investor may go wrong with an investment idea, and assessing upside and downside cases, as in a fair value range, remains par for the course.

Biogen Hits a Potential Home Run
We closely follow the progress of the clinical pipeline of companies in the pharma/biotech sector. Unlike other less product-driven industries, the pharma/biotech sector can experience wide swings in operating performance as a result of the lapsing of patent protection on key drugs, underscoring the importance of innovation to replace aging products. Biogen may have hit a home run in the critical field of Alzheimer's, an area of tremendous untapped need.

Merck’s Dominance in Immuno-Oncology Expands Once Again
Image Source: Merck. Merck simply blew away the competition--the results are simply incredible. Keytruda is a gamechanger, and we think it will become the top-selling pharmaceutical once the patent lapses on Humira.
