What are Wall Street analysts saying about Adamas Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Adamas Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We hosted an investor lunch with a practicing neurologist who discussed his experience with Gocovri. Specifically, he reported hallucinations in approximately 50% of his patients, vs. the 21% reported in the product label. This doctor attributed the side effect to rapid titration to the 274 mg daily dose, and has started to experiment with starting patients on the lowest 68.5 mg dose of the product (but was concerned that efficacy was modest at this level). This physician treated ~20 patients so far, but only 5-7 of these currently remain on the drug. We learned that for his patients 65 years had to be stepped down in dose or stop taking the product." (8/17/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation methodology, risks and uncertainties. We have utilized a discounted cash flow (DCF)-based approach to derive a composite valuation assessment of Adamas, which ascribes value to the company’s two principal product opportunities— GOCOVRI and ADS-5102—while also accounting for the token value provided by the royalty stream from Allergan plc on two other controlled-release products, for treatment of moderate-to-severe Alzheimer’s disease (AD)." (7/16/2018)
