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. " (11/12/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Neutral rating and $21 PT for ALDR. Monday, AMC, Alder reported cash of $485M, and our model projects the balance sheet to fund operations well into 2020. Questions on the earnings call centered on the eptinezumab market opportunity and commercialization strategy as the fourth CGRP monoclonal to enter the space. We believe that epti’ is in a class all its own as the only IV form and has a differentiated clinical profile that makes it well-positioned to target the highest burden migraine market and a prescriber base that would prefer to use in-office infusion capabilities." (11/6/2018)
  • 3. 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."
