What are Wall Street analysts saying about Acorda Therapeutics stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acorda Therapeutics stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acorda beats on earnings and revenues in first-quarter 2019. The company got a huge boost with the approval of Inbrija in the United States, slightly before the scheduled time period. The drug is also under review in the EU with a decision expected soon. Inbrija was launched in February and registered its first sales in the first quarter. However, Acorda’s key multiple sclerosis drug Ampyra is facing a generic competition which is significantly hurting Acorda’s top-line. The company expects to see a persistent decline in Ampyra sales during the quarters ahead in 2019. Shares of Acorda have underperformed the industry in the year so far. Nonetheless, Acorda boasts a strong pipeline addressing a wide range of disorders. The restructuring initiative is also saving costs." (5/3/2019) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Neutral rating but raise our price target on ACOR to $20 from $19. On Thursday, Acorda reported 4Q18 financials and detailed future commercialization plans for Inbrija, including monthly WAC pricing of $950, ~25% higher than our projections. The company reported net Ampyra revenues of $64.2M, higher than consensus $46.8M, reflecting a steep decline from the prior quarter, but clearly not as bad as some expected (we were $75.8M). That said, we anticipate Amp revs to continue to decline and therefore do not include Amp sales in our valuation of ACOR shares. Going forward, we see Acorda’s fate being clearly in the hands of Inbrija for the next phase of growth." (2/15/2019) 3. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "Friday, HSGX disclosed that discussions with the FDA had informally concluded ultimately resulting in the suspension of NeoCart’s development. The FDA notified HSGX that the company would be required to run an additional clinical trial to submit the BLA for NeoCart. Given HSGX’s capital position, this is not feasible and HSGX decided to suspend NeoCart development. To that end, HSGX will now explore all strategic options. HSGX’s outcome creates a few takeaways, in our view, regarding the cartilage segment which we discuss below." (12/26/2018) 4. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation methodology, risks, and uncertainties. We currently ascribe $570M to AMPYRA and $850M to INBRIJA on a risk-adjusted net present value (rNPV) basis, using an 85% probability of success and a 15% discount rate for INBRIJA along with a 12% discount rate for AMPYRA." (11/5/2018) 5. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Q3 beat due to delayed launch of generic Amprya last qtr…however, IMS points to -40% Q3 reduction in TRx already and as expected. Key milestone for ACOR is potential approval of 5th PDUFA. Analysis below suggests probability of approval is incrementally higher given recent developments – but we are Hold due to fairly balanced risk/reward up and down on the scenarios. With Ampyra generic happening now as expected, focus shifts to approval of Inbrija and whether ACOR should remain a standalone or look to sell itself to maximize value. When asked on the call, mgmt. says they are regularly exploring all options to maximize shareholder value (though if they do an OUS partnership as guided we predict stock would go down based on less M&A likelihood)."
