May 22, 2017: Barclays upgrades Mylan N.V. to an Overweight rating and raised the price target to $50 from $47. Barclays likes the favorable risk versus reward given opportunities for the company, most notably winning approval for its generic version of Copaxone this year, possibly as soon as next month. Barclays says its understandable to be skeptical that Mylan will win approval now after years of promises. Nevertheless, while accepting risk of another delay, it appears MYL’s chances are better than current market expectations. Barclays says their thesis doesn’t rest on Copaxone since their are other product catalysts including gx Restasis, biosimilar Neulasta & Lantus.

May 11, 2017: Mylan Laboratories stock chart looks like a nice swing trade long set up as the chart shows a J Hook pattern on rising Twiggs Money Flow (Twiggs Money Flow chart below).

April 20, 2017: Mylan Laboratories Inc announced the U.S. launch of Perphenazine Tablets USP, 2 mg, 4 mg, 8 mg and 16 mg, a generic version of the reference listed drug, Trilafon Tablets 2 mg, 4 mg, 8 mg and 16 mg, originally marketed by Schering. Mylan received final approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for this product, which is used in the treatment of schizophrenia and for the control of severe nausea and vomiting in adults.

February 6, 2017: Mylan stock got my attention today because the stock climbed on the news that Mylan has to pay $96.5 million in settlement of the Provigil antitrust class action suit. The settlement covers allegations that Mylan delayed launching its generic version of Cephalon narcolepsy drug Provigil in exchange for payment from Cephalon. The settlement disclosed in Pennsylvania federal court filings on Friday and still requires court approval.

There’s a lot of buy side pressure in Mylan right now as evidenced by the fact that even a $96.5 million settlement has not slowed down the buying.

February 3, 2017: Hearing takeover rumors circulating about Mylan. The rumor is that Pfizer might be interested in buying Mylan for around $55 a share.
