Jefferies upgraded AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) from Hold to Buy and raised its price target to 5,800.00p from 5,400.00p.

Analyst Jeffrey Holford commented, "We have upgraded AZN to Buy as we see a much higher probability of success and a larger market opportunity from the MYSTIC study than consensus implies. We believe that BMY's failure in CM-026 has increased the size of the IO combo opportunity and timing now favours AZN. We see positive asymmetry with up to 39% upside in AZN shares if MYSTIC hits vs. 10% downside if it fails."
