Bank of America reissued their buy rating on shares of Mylan (NYSE: MYL) in a report released on Monday. Bank of America currently has a $34.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $33.00.
“On 2/27, MYL announced that it is buying Strides’ injectables unit, Agila, for $1.6bn in cash. Our initial attempt at adding Agila to our MYL model generally validates MYL’s assumption that the deal could be accretive quickly. Our new 2014/15E adj. EPS are $3.52/$3.50 vs. $3.38/$3.33 (or accretion of 4%/5%), and we are tweaking our DCF-based PO up to $34 (from $33). As we stated, we see this transaction as an exciting platform (existing products + pipeline) for MYL to dramatically accelerate its position in the strategically important injectables space, which has seen some FDA-related missteps by competitors (HSP, Ben Venue, TEVA, etc.), especially in the US.,” the firm’s analyst commented.
Mylan traded up 0.49% on Monday, hitting $30.84. Mylan has a 52-week low of $20.21 and a 52-week high of $30.97. The stock’s 50-day moving average is currently $28.76. The company has a market cap of $12.547 billion and a price-to-earnings ratio of 20.19.
