What are Wall Street 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. " (8/9/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are reducing our PT from $28 to $20 based on a worst-case scenario analysis assuming no revenues from BSI or any other potential usages and an additional capital raise of $200 million in 2019 (an amount we see as adequate to carry the company to break-even point). We would be buyers on weakness as we believe Achaogen has an approvable drug in cUTI and there could be upside potential from Plazomicin in Carbapenem- resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE) cases over time." (5/3/2018)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Plazomicin will be discussed at an FDA Advisory Committee (AdCom) mtg 5/2/18. Achaogen completed two Phase 3 trials, a standard cUTI trial (EPIC) and the other a descriptive trial in patients with HABP/VABP or bloodstream infections caused by Carbapenem Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE; CARE). Both trials had positive outcomes, w/ the latter surprisingly demonstrating superiority to comparator colistin. Achaogen is seeking a label in both cUTI and Bloodstream infections, although Bloodstream is controversial given the descriptive nature of the CARE trial. The Avycaz and Cresemba AdCom mtgs are most relevant to analysis of the plazomicin mtg and we have a modest bias towards a vote in favor of including both indications on plazomicin label. Our note details recent antibiotic FDA reviews and individual voting histories. BUY." (4/30/2018)
  • 4. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We find no big surprises in the FDA analyses. This morning, FDA released its Briefing Document for the May 2, 2018 meeting of the Antimicrobial Drugs Advisory Committee (AMDAC) to review the NDA for Achaogen’s plazomicin for the proposed indications for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI), including acute pyelonephritis (AP); and bloodstream infections (BSI), in adults."
