What are Wall Street analysts saying about Alkermes stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alkermes stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alkermes' Vivitrol and Aristada continue to drive growth for the company. The company also raised its revenue and earnings guidance for 2018. This year, Alkermes’ development pipeline will witness key events like the upcoming regulatory interactions for ALKS 5461 for the adjunctive treatment of major depressive disorder. The Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee jointly voted that the benefit-risk profile was not adequate to support approval of ALKS 5461. The launch of Aristada Initio during the third quarter has been encouraging. It further distinguishes the company’s position in the market and provides an opportunity to address unmet patient need. However, Alkermes is highly dependent on manufacturing and/or royalty revenue. Estimates have reduced ahead of the Q4 results. The company has positive earnings surprise in the last few quarters." (1/29/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate the Neutral rating for ALKS stock and are reducing our PT by $5 to $41. We believe the FDA advisory panel view of the ALKS-5461 NDA is a major setback not only for the drug but also to the ability of ALKS to convince investors that the company can develop proprietary therapies of meaningful commercial potential."
