What are Wall Street analysts saying about Alder Biopharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alder Biopharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. 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. " (10/9/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We would BUY ALDR on this AGN-related dip Earlier today (6/11), Allergan (AGN, not covered) released top-line Phase 2b/3 data on atogepant, which is an oral calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor antagonist that is in development for the prevention of migraine. These early top-line data bode well for AGN and BHVN’s oral migraine-prevention products; see here for our note on BHVN ($36.11 | BUY, $40 price target). In short, however, we view ALDR’s intravenous (IV) eptinezumab as sufficiently differentiated vs. other injectables that are all subcutaneous, and orals that are much farther behind and do not have as much safety/efficacy data as injectables currently. As such, we believe eptinezumab has a significant role to play in migraine prevention especially for patients with chronic migraine, which is defined as >15 episodes per month for clinical trial purposes." (6/13/2018)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Alder had a busy 1Q with new CEO, CMO, and COO hires. After a thorough internal review, the team now expects Epti BLA submission to be completed in 1Q19 (was 2H18). Importantly, all gating CMC and clinical activities for BLA filing remain on track. As such, we moved our estimated epti launch from 4Q19 to 1Q20. We don’t expect the slight delay to market to significantly impact overall uptake. Epti’s differentiated profile (rapid onset, deep magnitude of effect) was highlighted at the AAN conference in April. We believe epti is sufficiently differentiated from competitors and think it can capture ~15% of the CGRP migraine prevention market (~$1.1B peak U.S. sales). Maintain BUY." (5/9/2018)
  • 4. Mizuho analysts commented, "We spoke with the company a couple of times late last week and this week after the announcement that CEO Randall Schatzman was stepping down. Our view on eptinezumab having a competitive and differentiated profile in the crowded migraine space has not changed. While the CEO transition brings uncertainties, it may help position the company as a commercial organization sooner. In our view, the best way to unlock the value of eptinezumab is through an acquisition by a larger company with substantial U.S. commercial experience. We recommend buying the shares on weakness."
