What are Wall Street analysts saying about Alder Biopharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alder Biopharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Neutral rating and $14 PT on ALDR. Alder reported 4Q18 earnings, including cash and STI of $412M. With the filing of eptinezumab’s BLA last week, the company expects to launch the drug by early next year, and we believe it is in good position to fund building out a “right-sized” neurology/headache-specialist focused sales force, as well as other launch prep this year, for a cash runway into 2020. We continue to believe that epti’ has perhaps the best and differentiated clinical profile and dosing paradigm, at least for the most-highly burdened chronic or fEM patient." (2/26/2019)
  • 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. " (2/18/2019)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We applied a weighted average valuation methodology to Alder using DCF and EV/Sales under assumptions of commercialization of Eptinezumab (ALD 403) US sales in 2Q 2020 and EU royalties in 2020. Our estimated 2028 FCF is $495 million and terminal value is 4.5x of 2028 estimated FCF. We layered a probability of clinical success of 90% in addition to a 17% discount rate to arrive at our $11 PT using DCF. For EV/Sales, we apply a 3.5 multiple (based on comps) to discounted 2024 sales to derive our $19 PT. Our weighted average valuation is $15 per share. Our base case scenario valuation assumes unadjusted peak sales of $1.1 bn for Eptinezumab in the U.S. in 2025. Our bull case scenario valuation assumes better than anticipated uptake of Eptinezumab with unadjusted peak sales of $1.3 bn in the U.S. in 2025 and a 4.0x terminal multiple, resulting in a $22 PT."
