Quickview - Oncology adds diversity

Wednesday, Feb 13 2013 by

Feb 13th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on quickview entitled "Oncology Adds Diversity". In summary, the report says:

Gilead’s investment case is understandably focused on its existing HIV franchise ($8.1bn sales in FY12) and burgeoning expectations for its hepC portfolio. However, consensus estimates currently attribute little value to Gilead’s oncology portfolio, despite the company spending $1.3bn in the last two years to acquire late-stage cancer drugs. We therefore view the successful development of idelalisib (acquired through Calistoga for $600m), simtuzumab (Arresto Biosciences for $225m) and CYT387 (YM Biosciences for $510m), as well as further potential oncology targets, as an emerging theme in bolstering and diversifying Gilead’s offering.
