What are analysts saying about Achaogen stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Achaogen stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Achaogen, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. It is focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel antibacterials to treat multi-drug resistant, or MDR, gram-negative infections. The Company is developing plazomicin, its lead product candidate, for the treatment of serious bacterial infections due to MDR enterobacteriaceae, including carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae. Achaogen, Inc. is headquartered in South San Francisco, California. " (7/17/2017)
  • 2. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "We are assuming coverage of AKAO with an Outperform." (5/5/2017)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Achaogen mgmt provided a 4Q16 corporate update yesterday. Company remains on track for plazomicin NDA submission 2H17. Details around manufacturing/ CMC were provided, including role for Pfizer McPherson facility in fill/ finish. An FDA Warning Letter was issued to Pfizer last month for matters unrelated to plazomicin at facility. We assume resolution is likely before PDUFA date in 2018. We await additional information on new oral beta-lactam/ BLI cUTI program (C-Scape), but believe commercial opportunity for oral drug in this indication is one of most attractive areas in antibiotic space." (3/15/2017)
  • 4. Aegis analysts commented, "Yesterday after market close, Achaogen announced fourth quarter results, reporting revenue of $10.7 mil vs. street consensus estimates of $12.4 mil and GAAP-EPS of $(1.04) vs. consensus of $(0.49). The EPS miss comes primarily from a $16.9 mil expense recorded in the fourth quarter related to changes in warrants and derivative liabilities that was associated with the capital raise completed in June, 2016. Achaogen is a clinical stage development company, as such we believe the financials are less important, milestones and catalysts tend to drive valuation for these types of companies." (3/15/2017)
