Jefferies analyst, Brian Abrahams, reiterated his Buy rating on shares of Vertex (NASDAQ: VRTX) after hosting a CF Summit with a panel of physician/scientists and a line-up of companies across the CF space.

The analyst is more confident that 6-11yo patients should provide a near term uptick to Orkambi and that VRTX retains a healthy lead over potential CFTR competitors in improving the regimen and expanding the market.

He also found doctors remain lukewarm on Orkambi overall.

All in, the analyst still sees VRTX's CF leadership, revenue expansion opportunities, and long term operational leverage as undervalued.

No change to his price target of $104.
