What are Wall Street analysts saying about Aerie Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aerie Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "While the glaucoma market holds potential, Aerie faces stiff competition from established branded and generic pharmaceutical companies, such as Novartis’ Simbrinza and Travtan, and Allergan’s Lumigan, as well as other smaller biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past twelve months. The FDA approval of Aerie’s lead drug, Rhopressa is a significant boost for the company. Aerie is also evaluating Rocklatan, a once-daily, quadruple-action fixed-dose combination of Rhopressa and Xalatan (latanoprost). The PDUFA (Prescription Drug User Fee Act) goal date for the completion of the FDA’s review of the Rocklatan NDA is set for Mar 14, 2019. Loss estimates have widened ahead of the Q4 earnings and the company has a negative earnings surprise in the recent quarters." (1/15/2019)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We note that one or two weeks of data can have a meaningful impact on our total 2018 projections and we used what we believe are conservative assumptions. We believe there could be upside to our current estimate and we believe the risk of Aerie not delivering on its 2018 sales guidance of $20-30 mil is low." (11/27/2018)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We rate Aerie Pharmaceuticals Overweight. AERI commercializes and develops once- daily eye drops Rhopressa and Roclatan, respectively, for glaucoma. Rhopressa is the first novel drug in a market that has not seen innovation in 20 years. Valuation Summary We value Aerie based on the NPV of the cash flows associated with its glaucoma drug candidates. Our price target is $86/share." (10/2/2018)
  • 4. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We hosted Aerie CFO a fireside chat this afternoon at the Canaccord Genuity Growth Conference. Aerie is an ophthalmology company that recently launched Rhopressa, the first new class of glaucoma drugs in over twenty years. In addition to Rhopressa, Aerie plans to commercialize Roclatan, a combination of Rhopressa and latanoprost, the leading glaucoma therapy in the US market. Beyond glaucoma, Aerie is exploring the use of ROCK inhibitors in back-of-the-eye conditions like wet AMD and could explore opportunities to utilize ROCK inhibitors outside of ophthalmology. Rhopressa tracking well with strong user feedback. Launched earlier this year, Rhopressa is already gaining traction with ophthalmologists and patients, and Aerie is pleased with the current uptake trajectory." (8/10/2018)
