What are Wall Street analysts saying about Amgen stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Amgen stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amgen’s newer drugs – Prolia, Xgeva, Blincyto, Kyprolis – are performing well. Amgen is also progressing with its pipeline and the approval of migraine candidate, Aimovig was a huge boost. Its strong biosimilars pipeline could be an important long-term growth driver. Amgen’s restructuring plan is making more cost efficient. Lower taxes and share buybacks should provide some bottom-line support. Amgen’s shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, Amgen faces challenges related to its more mature products such as launch of competing biosimilar versions of Neulasta and Epogen, further sales erosion of Neupogen and Aranesp and increasing competitive pressures on Enbrel. Meanwhile, uptake of key new drug, Repatha has been slow due to payer restrictions. Nonetheless, estimates have gone up ahead of the Q4 earnings release. Amgen has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (1/14/2019) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We visited Amgen’s headquarters in conjunction with our post ASH bus tour and met the company’s CFO, R&D head, and IR team. We highlight key takeaways in this note. Management continues to sound very bullish about the Aimovig launch even as competitors launch. We could expect a decision on the Sandoz case around the mediation in Jan. We would expect 2019 guidance range to be as wide or a bit wider than 2018 due to biosimilars. From speaking to management, we think the biggest moving piece is Neulasta experiencing now two biosimilar competitors. When looking at analogs, the company notes drug lost about 50% share, but Amgen has the OnPro device, which may allow it to slow the rate of branded loss. Sensipar ($1.7B ’18 Bloomberg consensus) is a moving piece since generics have not launched at risk." (12/4/2018) 3. Mizuho analysts commented, ". After speaking with two physicians who treat between 50-100 patients per month for cellulite to discuss the market opportunity for ENDP’s CCH, we are increasingly more positive on the market opportunity for this product, if approved. We are still maintaining our Neutral rating because we think the risk reward for ENDP’s existing business and new opportunities is already accurately reflected in its stock price. Better-than-expected Phase 3 data for CCH, a pick up in ENDP’s generics business and/or lower-than-expected calls on ENDP’s cash (debt, testosterone) would make us more positive on the stock. Please contact your Cantor Fitzgerald representative for a replay of the call." (10/26/2018) Has Amgen been receiving favorable news coverage?
