What are analysts saying about Alder BioPharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alder BioPharmaceuticals stock:

  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We received an email from Alder yesterday on its recap of the 18th Congress of the International Headache Society (IHC) meeting as it relates to eptinezumab. What we found as incremental data points are Alder’s interviews with practicing physicians on the advantages of eptinezumab. We believe the IV formulation for eptinezumab is a positive differentiation from other CGRP products in late stage development because of its reimbursement and potentially better compliance." (9/15/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alder Biopharmaceuticals Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. It discovers, develops and seeks to commercialize therapeutic antibodies. It is developing monoclonal antibodies comprising ALD403, for the prevention of migraine; and Clazakizumab, in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Alder Biopharmaceuticals Inc. is headquartered in Bothell, Washington. " (8/8/2017)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Results from the ongoing pivotal Phase 3 PROMISE-1 trial in patients with frequent episodic migraines (FEM) are expected this month. In the context of positive Phase 3 FEM results from all competitor CGRP antibody programs (AMGN, LLY, TEVA), we think PROMISE-1’s primary endpoint will generally be in-line with the competition. However, we expect differentiation with key secondary endpoints (≥75% reduction in migraine days over weeks 1-12 and weeks 1-4), which we think will be important for commercial success. We maintain our view that there is room for multiple players in the migraine prophylaxis market, and we believe Alder shares remain underappreciated even in a scenario where PROMISE-1 data are positive but undifferentiated. Alder’s current EV (~$550M) reflects treatment of just ~63k patients with eptinezumab in 2027 in our model, or <1% of our estimated 7.1M prevention therapy candidates."" (6/9/2017)
  • 4. Aegis analysts commented, "We conducted an in-depth analysis of four late-stage monoclonal antibodies in development for migraine prevention – See table 1." (4/10/2017)
