What are Wall Street analysts saying about AC Immune stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AC Immune stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AC Immune SA is a biopharmaceutical company. It develops, discover and design novel, proprietary medicines for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. The Company's pipeline includes Crenezumab, ACI-24, Anti-Tau antibody, Morphomer Tau, Tau-PET imaging agent, Morphomer Abeta and Morphomer alpha-syn which are in clinical trial.

  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We hosted a management breakfast (January 9, 2019) in the JPM (JPM; not rated) healthcare conference with AC Immune’s CEO, Andrea Pfeifer. During the discussions with management, a key focus from investors was on the interim analysis of crenezumab’s CREAD1 Phase 3 trial this year, and the role of effector function in targeting mis-folded proteins in the brain. We have limited clarity on the timing or the type of crenezumab’s interim analysis based on the conversations with management, and believe that this event remains a critical inflection point for the company. We think that the updated BAN2401 and aducanumab data collectively lend support to amyloid hypothesis and should have positive read-through to crenezumab." (1/24/2019)
