Guggenheim reiterated a Buy rating and $55.00 price target on The Medicines Company (NASDAQ: MDCO) as the company prepares to publish its 3-month and some 6-month Phase 2 data for its PCSK9 next month.

Analyst Louise Chen commented, "MDCO could publish 3-month and some 6-month Phase 2 data for its PCSK9 next month. The company expects to have most, if not all, of the 3-month data, and some of the 6-month data by September. Given the interest in PCKS9s, MDCO plans to publish a press release with top-line data as soon as possible, and provide more details at a medical conference. If the Phase 2 PCSK9 data for MDCO and outcomes data are both positive, we would expect MDCO's stock to trade toward our $55 PT. Based on our diligence, a 20%-30% reduction in heart attacks/death may be enough to increase uptake of this drug class."
