Cipla share price closed at Rs 883, up Rs 41 or 4.9%. Cipla moved from Rs 817 to Rs 883 in this week. Kotak Institutional Equities said that Lannett’s announcement of ANDA filing for Advair, a key pipeline product for Cipla, is in line with expectations and they see limited impact on Cipla’s Advair opportunity. Advair remains a sizable product (>US$800 mn) and the stringent FDA review process provides Cipla 12-18 months of lead time versus other filers, with >US$100 mn sales potential in the first year of launch. Cipla’s roll-out of a respiratory portfolio has been impressive and progress on other inhalation assets will add further visibility to medium-term growth. Kotak has reiterated a BUY with unchanged fair value of Rs 950 on Cipla.
Technicals on Cipla Share price:
Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research says that Cipla should be bought for a target of Rs 978 and stop-loss of 830. He said that the stock has posted a fresh breakout buy entry signal as it has posted a breakout from its ongoing broadening price pattern. This pattern is a classic price pattern signaling the accumulation of stock in a staggered manner. With the recent breakout above Rs 820 the stock is now set to gain momentum.

Ashis explains that Cipla is a well-known international participant in the fields of inhalers and antiretrovirals. Cipla entered the US market in 2015, with Invagen and Exelon's acquisitions. In the future, the company intends to launch combination inhalers in larger markets in the United States and Europe and establish its front ends to drive development. While the EU and API are still small, they are expected to rise as inhaler sales increase and biosimilars contribute to EMs in FY23.
Ashis says that Cipla has grasped the gap generated by Perrigo's withdrawal, as evidenced by a 12% market share in the USD 1 bn market. Interchangeability is evident, as Proventil and generics hold 13% of the market post generics (previously 4%) and limited competition and confusion over Perrigo's entry should ensure Cipla generates USD110 million in FY22, with room for growth.
The base business of Cipla is expected to remain stable as the core drugs segment performs well, says Ashis.
Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Research Analyst at LKP Securities said that Pharma stock has been the flavor of the market week gone by and most of the pharma stocks have shown a superb move.
