What are Wall Street analysts saying about ACADIA Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ACADIA Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "ACAD’s 4Q report this afternoon was relatively unsurprising. That said, we believe the company is making encouraging progress on both the commercial and clinical fronts ($60M in Nuplazid sales beat by $1-2M; 2019 Nuplazid guide above JPMe / in line with consensus; MDD pivotal program agreement reached; Phase 3 DRP/schizo studies on track). Indeed, the recovery for Nuplazid in PDP continues to build upon the early signals seen in 3Q18. Although we’re comfortable with Nuplazid’s commercial outlook, we expect 2019 to be less about PDP and more about the multiple important clinical readouts on tap that represent meaningfully larger future opportunities. In our view, a win on any of these clinical programs could lead to significant share appreciation." (3/3/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and our PT of $30 per share of ACAD. On Tuesday AMC, ACADIA reported 4Q18 revenues of $59.6M which were above our and approximately in line with consensus (FactSet) estimates. The company ended 4Q18 with a strong balance sheet consisting of $473.5M in cash. We model current cash and projected NUPLAZID revenues to fund ACADIA through several major value inflection points including topline data from the P3 ENHANCE study (schizo inadequate responders, mid-2019) and the P3 HARMONY study (DRP, 2020). YoY growth for NUPLAZID revenues was 79%." (2/27/2019)
