BMO Capital analyst, Ian Somaiya, reiterated his Market Perform rating on shares of Biogen (NASDAQ: BIIB) after hosting an expert call that may present a trading opportunity. The expert argued that the evidence supporting the amyloid hypothesis of AD outweighs the evidence that undercuts it, but suggested that patient selection and trial design/execution key to demonstrating benefit to support regulatory approval.

He went on to estimate that Lilly's EXPEDITION-3 trial has a ~60% probability of success, with BIIB’s aducanumab >70% as long as rates of ARIA-E can be reduced with titration. The analyst believes that this presents a possible trading opportunity in BIIB with sola Phase 3 and aducanumab titration data (both in December).

No change to the price target of $304.
