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’s earnings missed the Zacks Consesnsus Estimate in the first quarter of 2018. Revenues also fell short of the consensus mark. The company 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. 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." (5/7/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Ziopharm’s CAR-T Programs Make a Splash at ASH; Reiterate Buy Ziopharm’s 2nd-gen CAR-T shows promise in early study. We attended the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) over the last weekend, where Ziopharm presented interim results from the ongoing Phase 1 clinical study in patients with CD19 + leukemia or lymphoma treated with Ziopharm’s second generation CD19 + CAR-T therapy. Recall, Ziopharm’s second generation CAR-T cells were manufactured using the company’s proprietary Sleeping Beauty (SB) transposon platform which shortens the manufacturing process to two weeks compared to the typical 3-4 weeks for currently approved CAR-T therapies, such as Kymriah from Novartis (NVS; not rated) and Yescarta from Gilead (GILD; not rated). The results from the Phase 1 study show that treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia or lymphoma (n = 8) resulted in a 50% complete response rate after one month of therapy." (12/14/2017)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Not what ACOR stock needed. ACOR announced this morning that an increase in blood monitoring for agranulocytosis is being implemented for subjects in the Phase 3 trial of tozadenant in Parkinson’s disease (PD)." (11/15/2017)
