The Teva Pharmaceutical Thesis: Having resolved its opioid litigation suits, the company is positioned to begin investing in growth, Gerberry said in the upgrade note.

“Within the lower growth spec pharma names, we believe TEVA has the most room to re-rate given improving optimization of the cost structure and free cash flow generation,” the analyst wrote.

There is “enough visibility in the portfolio” to take Teva to low-single-digit EBITDA growth in 2023-24, he added.

TEVA Price Action: Teva shares had risen by 2.77% to $10.40 at the time of publication.
