What are Wall Street analysts saying about ACADIA Pharmaceuticals stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ACADIA Pharmaceuticals stock: 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and $30 price target on ACADIA. We recently hosted investors for a meeting with ACAD management on our Post ASH-Thrash Bus Tour. One focus of investor interest was the progress made by ACADIA on the NUPLAZID franchise since the removal of the safety concern overhang precipitated by what we view as an unfounded negative media article regarding the drug in PDP. Recall that in September 2018, the FDA announced that the label for NUPLAZID adequately characterized the known risks and that the agency still viewed benefits as outweighing risks for patients with PDP, especially in light of alternative off-label antipsych drugs." (12/5/2018) 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our $60 PT is based on an equally weighted composite of: (a) $69/share, as a 35x multiple of taxed and diluted FY22 GAAP EPS of $4.09 discounted back to and (b) an NPV of $50/share (discount rate 10%, growth rate 2.5%)."
