  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "While Amgen’s newer drugs — Prolia, Xgeva, Blincyto, Kyprolis — will drive sales, biosimilar and brand competition faced by its legacy drugs will create pressure on the top line in 2019. Meanwhile, uptake of key drug, Repatha has been slow due to payer restrictions. However, Amgen is progressing well with its pipeline and approval of Aimovig was a huge boost. In the past five years, Amgen has launched nine products, including two in new therapeutic areas. Amgen boasts a strong biosimilars pipeline, which could be an important long-term growth driver for the company. Amgen’s restructuring plan is making it leaner and more cost efficient. Lower taxes and share buybacks should provide some support to the bottom line. Amgen’s shares have underperformed the industry this year so far. Estimates have declined lightly ahead of the Q1 earnings release. Amgen has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (4/15/2019)

Therefore, upward earnings revisions to levels not reflected in FactSet consensus expectations should drive AMRN shares higher.
