What are Wall Street analysts saying about Acorda Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acorda Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. 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)." (11/4/2018)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. 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)
