Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Agios Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We maintain a favorable view on Fouse as the CEO given her expensive experience at Laboratories, holding various senior roles focusing on corporate strategies, finance, and operations. We believe Fouse will help maintain AGIO’s heading in launching the approved products and developing the pipeline." (9/5/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "BeiGene announced the pricing of its Hong Kong initial public offering of 65,600,000 ordinary shares. Based on the assumed exchange rate, the public offering, priced at $13.76 (HK$108) per share or $178.9 per American Depositary Share (ADS) is expected to raise ~$903M (HK$7.08bn)." (8/2/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Agios received an FDA approval of Idhifa (enasidenib) in August for treatment of AML, which was a huge boost, given the immense commercial potential in the target market. We are also optimistic about its collaboration with Celgene as it provides Agios with regular funds. The company’s progress with the pipeline candidates, AG-120 and AG-881, has been quite impressive too. In December, the company submitted a new drug application to the FDA for  AG-120 for treatment of AML. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the last one year. However, Agios depends heavily on partner Celgene for revenues as Idhifa is only in the early stages of launch. Also, the decision to discontinue the development of AG-519 was disappointing. Stiff competition is another matter of concern for the company." (1/16/2018)
