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 are Overweight on ACAD with a 12-month PT of $25 based on NUPLAZID/ pimavanserin in PDP/other neuropsych indications. Our contrarian view is based on long-standing & recently updated pima’ diligence leading us to dismiss issues raised in the media that have challenged, albeit we believe temporarily, NUPLAZID sales & ACAD shares. Why? NUPLAZID remains the only agent approved for PDP against a class of atypical antipsych drugs used off-label with known safety challenges." (9/20/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acadia Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecule drugs for the treatment of central nervous system disorders. Their three clinical programs are ACP-103 for treatment-induced dysfunction in Parkinson's disease, and ACP-104 and ACP-103, both for the treatment of schizophrenia. " (9/10/2018)
  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks to achievement of the target price. 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%). Risks to our investment thesis and target price include: (1) failure of Nuplazid in further clinical studies; (2) failure of Nuplazid to secure regulatory approval in further indications; and (3) failure of Nuplazid to achieve peak commercial revenue estimates in our model, due to market size, penetration rates, and pricing."
