In a report published Monday, Morgan Stanley analyst David Risinger downgraded Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE: TEVA) from Equal-Weight to Underweight, and removed the $40.00 price target.

In the report, Morgan Stanley noted, “Earnings face significant pressure in 2014-2017E when Copaxone, Treanda, and Nuvigil go generic. Copaxone margin pressure offsets cost cuts in our base case. Despite discounted valuation, we believe other stocks in our coverage universe offer a better risk-reward on revenue and growth prospects. Bull/bear cases continue to hinge on Copaxone franchise durability. Brand pipeline success, cost cutting, and external deals could drive upside.”

Teva Pharmaceutical closed on Friday at $38.91.
