Following strong first quarter results driven by sales of Soliris, Oppenheimer analysts are updating their EPS estimates on Alexion Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ALXN) for 2012 through 2015. The new estimates are $1.79, $2.43, $3.18 and $4.04, respectively, compared to prior estimates of $1.72, $2.38, $3.03 and $3.87.

“Soliris PNH sales remain on an upward trajectory,” says one Oppenhimer analyst. “We believe ex-US expansion and increasing PNH diagnosis will further drive Soliris sales growth. Notably, we see additional upside in PNH, as ALXN reports the disease remains underdiagnosed. Based on this, we view PNH sales as a continuing Soliris growth driver in '12 and into 1H13.”

Oppenheimer analysts have a $100 price target on ALXN and an OUTPERFORM rating.
