Piper Jaffray analyst, Joshua Schimmer, reiterated his Overweight rating on shares of Alexion Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ALXN) and noted that the company remains one of his top large cap picks for 5 reasons:

1) Soliris and its next-gen versions will be more difficult to displace than many investors believe

2) the Myasthenia Gravis indication will be added to labels in 2017

3) the company's unique expertise in complement inhibition will deliver additional pipeline shots on goal

4) the company will continue to diversify its portfolio away from Soliris and continue its strong metabolic franchise launch

5) potentially transformational pipeline programs advance through clinical development.

No change to the price target of $185.
