What are Wall Street analysts saying about Amgen stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Amgen stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We rate Amgen shares 12-month price target of $223. Amgen posted a nice beat and raise third quarter for top and bottom line estimates. We found Aimovig trends notable with over 100K patients on the drug. For this quarter, key products Neulasta and Enbrel are were roughly in line with consensus. New top and bottom line guidance are $23.2-23.5B and $14.00-14.25/sh. Our new top and bottom line estimates are $23.3B and $14.36/sh. Aimovig looking strong out of the gate for migraine treatment with unit demand. Aimovig sales were $22M in the quarter, but Amgen has free drug bridging programs." (10/31/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. Cann analysts commented, "The FDA approval of this sNDA for Kyprolis based on the positive A.R.R.O.W. data supports our outlook that Kyprolis will have increased adoption and greater market penetration over the next five years. The A.R.R.O.W. results support a nearly 28% increase in volume of Kyprolis administered per patient in the RRMM setting. We anticipate Kyprolis sales will increase to $2.0 billion in 2022 from $835 million in 2017 and will account for 6.2% of sales, being the fourth-largest driver of sales growth. Continuing positive data, like those demonstrated in A.R.R.O.W., ASPIRE and ENDEAVOR, along with label expansions to include overall survival in the relapsed multiple myeloma setting, support this outlook that Kyprolis will have increased adoption and greater market penetration over the next five years." (10/1/2018)
  • 4. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amgen’s newer drugs – Prolia, Xgeva, Blincyto, Repatha, Kyprolis – are performing well. Amgen is also progressing with its pipeline and the recent approval of migraine candidate, Aimovig was a huge boost. Amgen’s restructuring plan is making it leaner and more cost efficient. Lower taxes and share buybacks should provide some bottom-line support. Amgen’s shares have outperformed the industry this year so far. However, Amgen has some challenges in store, given the slowdown in sales of mature drugs like Enbrel, Aranesp and Neulasta, which are facing an array of branded and generic competitors. Volume growth of new drugs may not be enough to offset lost sales due to the decline in mature brands. While Neupogen is already facing U.S. biosimilar competition, Neulasta, Epogen and Sensipar could start facing the same this year. Meanwhile, uptake of key new drug, Repatha has been slow due to payer restrictions." (10/1/2018)
