In a report published Wednesday, Mizuho Securities analyst Mario Corso reiterated a Buy rating on Auxilium Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: AUXL), and raised the price target from $33.00 to $37.00.

In the report, Mizuho Securities USA noted, “Last night's ENDP bid of $28.10/AUXL share is below 2014 high and our standalone valuation, implying term revisions likely.
