Jefferies analyst Brian Abrahams weighed in on Celgene (NASDAQ: CELG) after partner bluebird bio posted 'highly promising' bb2121 results in multiple myeloma.

Abrahams commented, "Data emerging from BLUE’s bb2121 (CELG-partnered) looks highly promising; though it will need to be replicated in a much broader pop., safety needs to stay clean, and durability and manufacturing/cost feasibility are unknowns with the approach, we believe it provides strong validation for CELG’s anti-BCMA candidates, helps offset recent BD/pipeline skepticism, and supports CELG’s underappreciated, multi-faceted MM life cycle extension strategy. "

The firm maintained a Buy rating and price target of $140 on BLUE.
