Leerink Swann upgraded Mylan (NASDAQ: MYL) from Market Perform to Outperform with a price target of $30.00 (from $26.00).

The firm comments, "We are upgrading MYL to Outperform from Market Perform based on our increasing confidence for 3 key value drivers: (1) potential for sustained EpiPen sales beyond 2015 based on feedback from two MEDACorp regulatory specialists; (2) considerable financial flexibility to execute highly accretive M&A transaction(s); and (3) 2013 guidance that looks achievable & EPS upside vs. Street in 2014-15. Low visibility on US generics in 2013 remains a slight overhang but manageable in our view. We increase our EpiPen estimates, and our new valuation of $30/share (from $26) is based on our ’13E P/E multiple going to 11x (from 9.5x), supported by our DCF valuation."
