Leerink Swann upgraded Regeneron Pharma (NASDAQ: REGN) from Market Perform to Outperform.

Leerink analyst says, "REGN shares continue to be volatile, returning to the levels where we first initiated after reaching the $70s when infections were reported with off-label Avastin. With the 2nd year of VIEW data around the corner representing a significant binary event, we believe current levels offer a decent entry point on a risk-adjusted basis."

"We estimate 50% upside if Eylea beats by >1.5 injections (15% probability); 25% upside if Eylea beats by 0.5-1.5 injections (45% probability); 20% downside if Eylea is as good as Lucentis (30% probability) and 35% downside if Eylea is worse than Lucentis (10% probability)."
