Amgen (AMGN -5.8%) slides after posting a mixed Q1 report late yesterday, beating on its EPS but coming up short on earnings. Net profit rose 21% Y/Y, due largely to a significantly lower tax rate, but the better number fails to mask disappointing sales, especially of its key arthritis drug Enbrel. The drug saw sales rise 11%, but fell short of analysts expectations. Piper Jafray cut the shares to Neutral on the report, saying the stock has limited upside until late stage clinical catalysts provide visibility into future growth.
