What are Wall Street analysts saying about Alnylam Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alnylam Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We are reiterating our Overweight rating and $135 price target. We believe that early trends from the launch are in line with our expectations. We are staying with Alnylam as a top franchise pick in 2019, and are not worried about launch trends that are really too early to read into in a new market it is building. Not surprising, investors paid the closest attention to the new start number that was 125 patients after about 7 weeks of launch. We think that this number of new starts is solid for hATTR amyloidosis, a disease for which there haven’t been many therapies to treat these patients. We also think that Alnylam has been very clear that this is a market that the new players would have to build." (11/8/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although we are pleased with Alnylam’s broad and promising pipeline, we note that most candidates are in their early or mid stages of development. These candidates still have a long way to go before hitting the market. Currently, Alnylam depends heavily on Onpattro for growth. We also note that gaining approval for pipeline candidates has become more difficult now.  However,  In August, Alnylam got a significant boost with the approval of Onpattro (patisiran), a first-of-its-kind RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutic, both in the United States and in Europe, for the treatment of the polyneuropathy of hereditary transthyretin-mediated (hATTR) amyloidosis in adults. This is the first approved candidate for the company and hence should drive revenues. Loss estimates have remained stable ahead of the Q3 earnings release." (10/8/2018)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Alnylam is expected to announce results of an interim analysis of the Phase 3 trial of givosiran in Acute Hepatic Porphyrias (AHP) later this month. The FDA has reportedly indicated that a statistically significant reduction in biomarker urine ALA level w/ the first 30 enrolled patients may be sufficient for accelerated approval. We expect a positive outcome based on strength of data collected from Phase 1/2 testing, in which profound and durable reductions in urine ALA levels were observed. Mgmt has guided for NDA submission by YE18. We assume U.S. commercial launch in 2H19 and WW peak sales $600-700M. Reiterate BUY." (9/13/2018)
  • 4. 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)
