What are Wall Street analysts saying about Alnylam Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alnylam Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Alnylam and the FDA announced Friday the approval of Onpattro for the treatment of polyneuropathy caused by hATTR. Mgmt guided for drug to be available today. WAC price is $450,000/yr and mgmt estimates average net price $345,000/yr. Because the label is focused on polyneuropathy, we assume penetration of the PN (only polyneuropathy symptoms) and Mixed (both cardiomyopathy and polyneuropathy symptoms) subsets, but not the cardiomyopathy subset of the hATTR patient population. Nevertheless, given the impressive efficacy seen in the Phase 3 APOLLO trial, we expect the drug to be an attractive and competitive option for PN +Mixed patients. Reiterate BUY. Our enthusiasm for the stock is still primarily driven by the RNAi platform, which we expect to produce several more differentiated drugs going forward." (8/13/2018)
  • 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We do not see earnings as the most meaningful indicator of value for a development-stage biotech. Revance remains on track to report results from the long-term safety study (SAKURA 3) of RT-002 in glabellar lines in 4Q18. Following this, Revance is expected to file its BLA for RT-002 in glabellar lines in 1H19. We continue to see RT-002 as a differentiated long duration neurotoxin that has the potential to seriously challenge the current market order." (8/3/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although Alnylam has a broad and promising pipeline, we note that most candidates are in mid stages of development. These candidates still have a long way to go before hitting the market. The company relies highly on collaborators for funding. Any development/regulatory setback would be a negative for the company.  However, Alnylam reported positive data from the ATLAS study in the first quarter which led to regulatory filings for its late-stage pipeline candidate patisiran and the FDA set an action date of Aug 11, 2018. The company along with its partners Sanofi and The Medicines Company, restarted fitusiran's ATLAS phase III study and advanced inclisiran in the ORION-9, -10, and -11 phase III studies, respectively, with results expected for both programs in 2019. Alnylam expects to achieve the profile of three marketed products by the end of 2020." (7/4/2018)
  • 4. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We now raise our PT to $175, after: (1) increasing the patisiran probability of success to 97%, and (2) lowering the Alnylam WACC to 8% to reflect further RNAi therapeutics platform de-risking. We now update our Alnylam patient-based and other models to reflect recent positives, while consolidating views from recent Chardan macro research (e.g. on novel lipid-lowering therapies). (See Figures 3-7.) Notably, a near- best-case safety and efficacy profile emerged from the pivotal APOLLO trial (as discussed in our 20 September 2017 research); and, Alnylam proceeded to file patisiran in an expeditious fashion. We thus newly model a 97% probability of success (POS) for patisiran and $1.77 billion in 2030E risk-adjusted franchise sales (patisiran and follow ons). We now increase the POS of givosiran, to 80% ($540 million in 2030E sales) from 40% in our previous model, given the product’s progress ahead of our expectations." (1/19/2018)
  • 5. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ALNY), making it our Alpha Generator pick, with a Buy rating and a 12-month price target of $150 per share, due to our utmost conviction that Alnylam represents a foundational biopharma investment, led by the firm’s hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (hATTR) franchise."
