What are Wall Street analysts saying about Acorda Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acorda Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are reiterating our Neutral rating and $32 PT for ACOR. The company announced today that the US Court of Appeals has upheld a decision to invalidate four Ampyra patents, with the last remaining patent having expired on July 30, 2018. However, in our recent initiation on ACOR, we did not ascribe value to Ampyra due to the prior court rulings, which we predicted would be upheld on appeal. We anticipate a steep decline in Ampyra sales as generics now have an opportunity to enter the market, and this court decision may prompt generics to launch soon." (9/10/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We continue to expect generic erosion of the AMPYRA franchise in the coming months; however, we would also point out that oral arguments in Acorda’s appeal of the court decision to overturn the longest-lived AMPYRA patents have now been completed and the company continues to await a final decision. In the interim, Acorda has inked a conditional settlement agreement with Mylan N.V. (MYL; not rated) and affiliates over AMPYRA, pursuant to which Mylan would be permitted to market its generic version of Ampyra in the U.S. sometime in 2025 or earlier under certain circumstances. Investors should note that Acorda has also signed interim agreements with Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (TEVA; not rated) and Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC (HKMPY; not rated) concerning their patent litigation relating to AMPYRA." (8/6/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acorda is presently working on strengthening its Parkinson’s pipeline by focusing on the late stage candidate Inbrija in its portfolio. Inbrija’s NDA is under review in the United States and EU. Acorda boasts a strong pipeline addressing a wide range of disorders. The restructing initiative is also encuraging. The company’s share price has outperformed the industry so far this year. However, the company’s key multiple sclerosis drug Ampyra is expected to face generic competition from mid-2018 in the United States. Hence, Acorda’s dependence on Ampyra to draw major part of its revenues is concerning. Moreover, Inbrija received a refusal-to-file letter from the FDA for NDA for Inbrija last August. This in turn delayed its expected commercial launch, which was anticipated much earlier." (7/3/2018)
