Mylan N.V. (MYL) Upgraded by Zacks Investment Research to Hold

Mylan N.V. (NASDAQ:MYL) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating in a research note issued on Tuesday, August 1st.

According to Zacks, “Mylan expects new product launches in the generics segment will propel the top-line. The FDA Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) recently unanimously recommended approval of Mylan's biosimilar version of breast cancer drug Herceptin. Shares of Mylan have performed better than the industry so far in 2017. However, EpiPen woes continue as sales declined due to increased competition and entry of generics should impact sales. Pricing continues to impact results and the company projects mid-single digit price erosion globally for the year. In addition, Mylan received a complete response letter from the FDA regarding its ANDA for the generic version of asthma drug Advair Diskus. In Apr 2017, Mylan received a warning letter from the FDA for its manufacturing facility in India. The FDA cited significant violations of current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) regulations for finished pharmaceuticals in the warning letter.”
