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, "Aerie reported mixed results for the fourth quarter. Though earnings missed estimates, Rhopressa sales comfortably beat estimates and doubled sequentially. The solid uptake in prescription volumes should propel Rhopressa sales further, as glaucoma is one of the largest segments in the global ophthalmic market. The FDA approval of its second candidate, Rocklatan, a once-daily, quadruple-action fixed-dose combination of Rhopressa and Xalatan has further boosted the company’s portfolio. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past six months. While the glaucoma market holds potential, Aerie faces stiff competition from existing players and new ones like Vyzulta among others." (3/15/2019) 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We see this guidance as conservative and we believe there is a reasonable chance for Aerie to outperform in 2019. We currently model FY19 revenue of ~$120mn. Rocklatan is expected to launch in the U.S. in early May with a fully trained salesforce. Keep in mind: insurance coverage pickup could be faster as contracts with payers will already be in place (from Rhopressa)." (3/13/2019) 3. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "An abstract for HS-110 combo with checkpoint inhibitor nivolumab was released. The interim data indicated that HS-110 combo with nivolumab leads to meaningful benefit consistent with earlier results. We expect that the presentation at 2019 will contain updated results with a later cut-off date." (2/27/2019) Has Aerie Pharmaceuticals been receiving favorable news coverage?
