What are Wall Street analysts saying about ACADIA Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ACADIA Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. 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. " (5/9/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "HARMONY Study Initiation: Killing Multiple" Birds With One Stone? Reit Buy and $60 PT Initiation of the Ph3 HARMONY study is one step forward with our bull thesis. With the initiation of HARMONY study in dementia-related psychosis (DRP) and discontinuation of SEREN study in AD agitation, we applaud what we view as a smart move by Acadia of pursuing a broader indication for pimavanserin, and more importantly, doing so with a solid clinical plan moving forward. At first glance, the seemingly bold move into DRP from ADP may appear over-ambitious (killing multiple" birds with one stone). However, we note that a psychosis focus/approach may prove to be a smart play from both the commercial point of view and also from the mechanistic perspective. The blessing from the FDA with a Breakthrough Designation further elevates our sanguine outlook for the program. We highlight the significant upside coming with the DRP expansion as the target market is potentially bigger than ADP alone (if we assume ADP comprises 70% of the DRP)." (10/5/2017)
