Earlier, UBS initiates coverage on Medivation (NASDAQ: MDVN) with a Neutral rating and $59 price target.

"We view Medivation as a high-quality mid-cap biotech, with lead asset Xtandi poised to become part of the standard of care in metastatic prostate cancer," the analyst comments. "We have a favorable long-term view on the Xtandi opportunity, and think it’s likely that future clinical trial data support differentiated claims vs. competing product Zytiga. However, we initiate with a Neutral rating given high expectations for peak sales ahead of key de-risking data (which implies significant downside risk, albeit less likely), and low likelihood of M&A until sales trends and key data are known."
