WRITTEN BY Sarah Collins

Morgan Stanley recommendation update for MYL

Today, Morgan Stanley downgraded Mylan (MYL) from “overweight” to “equal weight.” The firm also cut its target price for MYL stock from $46 to $36. The company’s flagship specialty product, Epipen, continues to experience supply constraints. Moreover, it’s expected to face intense competition from competitor Teva’s (TEVA) generic Epipen, which received approval in August and is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Also, Mylan has seen lower-than-expected sales from its biosimilar and complex products portfolio, which it’s increasingly focusing on in the wake of increasing generics competition and pricing pressures.
