Brean Capital downgraded United Therapeutics Corp. (NASDAQ: UTHR) from Buy to Hold.

"We are downgrading United to Hold from Buy due to the achievement of our target price and our view that the next catalyst, a second FDA action on a refiled oral treprostinil application, will result in a second rejection. The resubmission of the oral treprostinil application was accepted, and it was not based on new data, but on the interpretation of existing data after an end-of-review meeting with the FDA. We also view United to have too few significant clinical or regulatory catalysts in the intermediate term after the upcoming FDA response to oral treprostinil," said analyst Jonathan Aschoff.
