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, "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. 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." (2/8/2019)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are including weekly IQVIA Scripts for Rhopressa below. For the week ended 02/01/2019, Rhopressa TRx increased +2.6% to 5,283 from 5,150 the prior week; and Rhopressa NRx increased +1.2% to 2,330 from 2,302 the prior week." (2/8/2019)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We rate Aerie Pharmaceuticals Overweight. AERI commercializes and develops once- daily eye drops Rhopressa and Roclatan, respectively, for glaucoma.

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)
