Baird analyst, Brian Skorney, reiterated his Outperform rating on shares of Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) after the Parsabiv FDA rejection. Amgen's Parsabiv, a calcimimetic under review by the FDA for secondary hyperthyroidism, received a complete response letter. Amgen has spoken positively about the program in light of Phase 3 results. Despite the surprising decision, the analyst is not currently modeling sales for Parsabiv separate from Sensipar, and expects minimal impact to the stock.

No change to the price target of $157.
