Shares of Immunogen Inc. (NASDAQ: IMGN) are under pressure Thursday after UBS initiated coverage with a dreaded "Sell" rating and slapped a $10 price target on the name, which suggests 37 percent downside from Wednesday's close.

While Immunogen has itself a great drug, valuation can't keep up, the firm said.

"While we believe T-DM1, ImmunoGen's antibody drug conjugate of Herceptin with partner Roche is a sig. step forward in the treatment of HER2+ breast cancer, we believe the Street is overestimating the peak and time-to-peak for T-DM1 sales," analyst Matthew Harrison states. "Based on our survey, we see little off-label Rxs into the adjuvant setting (~70-80% of revs) until 2018 when Roche has data. Further, without significant adjuvant sales until 2018, the stock is implying >60% average penet ration for T-DM1 over the 12 year royalty term versus our modeled ~20% average penetration."
