What are Wall Street analysts saying about Aerie Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aerie Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We had the opportunity to host lunch for Rubino yesterday. The company began to see strong uptake of Rhopressa following the product launch on and feedback from the salesforce has been very positive. We are confident in management’s ability to execute." (6/1/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We continue to view Aerie positively, with catalysts for Roclatan, OUS geographies and additional clinical progression as potential inflection points that build on what will likely be solid acceptance of Rhopressa. We maintain our BUY rating and DCF-driven $86 PT on AERI shares." (5/15/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Aerie received a significant boost with the recent approval of lead drug Rhopressa. The approval came ahead of the PDUFA date. Meanwhile, Aerie is also evaluating Roclatan, a once-daily, quadruple action fixed-dose combination of Rhopressa and Xalatan. Aerie’s shares have outperformed the industry in the last  twelve months. However, Rhopressa 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. Valeant Pharmaceutical’s Vyzulta is also approved for open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Rhopressa will face a tough time in gaining market share due to competition from these products. Any approval delays for Roclatan like Rhopressa will be detrimental to the company's growth prospects." (4/17/2018)
