BMO Capital analyst M. Ian Somaiya weighed in on Biogen (NASDAQ: BIIB) with shares down on Eli Lilly's solanezumab's failure. The analyst said the news decreases the value of aducanumab's.

Somaiya commented, "We expect BIIB shares to trade down on solanezumab's failureā€Ž, as we believe another Abeta drug failure increases aducanumab's development risk. But downside likely limited (10-15% in our view) given aducanumab's better Abeta oligomer targeting and trial design (early vs. sola's mild patients). We believe positive titration data (CTAD, 12/9), supporting safe use of highest, most effective dose from P1b, are key to aducanumab's P3 success or at a minimum realizing value in an M&A."

The firm maintained an Market Perform rating and price target of $294.00
