Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AcelRx Pharmaceuticals stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of therapies for the treatment of pain. The Company product candidates comprises: ARX-01 or the Sufentanil NanoTab PCA System; ARX-02 or the Sufentanil NanoTab BTP Management System; and ARX-03 or the Sufentanil/Triazolam NanoTab which are in their development stage.

  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Arc Logistics Partners LP reported 4Q16 Adjusted EBITDA of $13.9 million, below our estimate of $14.9 million, and distributable cash flow (DCF) of $11.0 million against our estimate of $11.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA came in below our estimates due to slightly lower revenues and higher operating expense on the quarter. Management provided an update on the ongoing Gulf LNG arbitration case and noted that the arbitration panel has heard the arguments and is in the process of rendering a decision. With that said, a timeline for a decision was not provided. On the call management highlighted their belief that the Gulf arbitration is acting as an overhang on ARCX units and expect a resolution to provide uplift to the partnership's valuation (assuming a positive outcome). Although we ultimately expect a favorable resolution for ARCX in the Gulf LNG arbitration, a full valuation and uncertainty over the outcome are keeping us on the sidelines. At this time we are maintaining our Hold rating." (3/14/2017)
  • 3. Royal Bank Of Canada analysts commented, "ACRX reported 4Q results after the close where focus was primarily on the upcoming DSUVIA (ARX-04) launch, the expected AdCom meeting prior to approval, and progress with the Zalviso trial and the EU launch. We continue to view the story as on-track and make only minor adjustments to our model. We reiterate our Outperform rating and $6 PT." (3/3/2017)
