JPMorgan analyst Jessica Fye downgraded Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ: NKTR) from Neutral to Underweight.

The analyst comments "Following removal of bempeg from Nektar’s pipeline due to clinical disappointments, Nektar has refocused resources on early-/mid-stage pipeline opportunities such as NKTR-358 (immunology) and NKTR-255 (I-O). We believe the emerging immunology/I-O pipeline at Nektar holds potential for value creation, but given it will take time and definitive proof-of-concept clinical data to regain investor confidence post bempeg, we expect investors could be hesitant to ascribe more value to these assets in the next 6-12 mos. Along these lines, we think it will be difficult for the stock to perform in pace with our coverage universe and rate the stock Underweight."
