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, Vectibix, 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 in 2018. Amgen’s shares have outperformed the industry this year so far. However, Amgen has some challenges in store, given 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. Meanwhile, uptake of key new drug, Repatha has been slow due to payer restrictions.  However, estimates have gone up ahead of the Q2 earnings release. Amgen has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (7/17/2018)
  • 2. Cann analysts commented, "The timing of this EC approval of Prolia in GIOP is in line with our expectations, following FDA approval in this setting in May 2018. in GIOP in the EU supports our expectations for Prolia sales through 2022. With this approval, patients who receive treatment with glucocorticoids, who need options to improve their bone mineral density, provide a new addressable market for Prolia. Prolia is in its eighth year of launch, and has achieved an estimated market penetration of greater than 60%. We anticipate Prolia sales will increase to $2.75 billion in 2022 from $1.97 billion in 2017 and will account for 8.4% of sales." (6/8/2018)
  • 3. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "AMGN’s top-line continues to be uninspiring, but the bottom line will meaningfully benefit from a lower than expected tax rate (surprise, surprise) and a large, accelerated $10B share buyback. There are several moving pieces to consider heading into 2018 (which are apparent in management’s uncharacteristically wide guidance range), including timing/magnitude of legacy franchise erosion (e.g., Neulasta & Sensipar), trajectory of recent/upcoming launches (e.g., Kyprolis, Repatha, Aimovig), and the extent to which AMGN chooses to exercise its upsized share repurchase authorization (now ~$14B in total). While we continue to be keenly interested in potential for M&A (which AMGN continues to be constructive on) and the earlier stage pipeline, we maintain our Neutral rating pending evidence of sustainable near-/mid-term growth." (2/4/2018)
  • 4. Mizuho analysts commented, "We expect Q4 ’17 trends for both unit demand and net selling price to continue into 2018 – Expect Q1 ’18 sales to be ~ 20% of full year 2018 sales Neulasta US = 969 / 950 / 949 Neulasta Ex-US = 145 / 151 / 152 Neulasta WW = 1114/ 1103 / 1100 Neupogen US = 82 / 87 / 87 PLEASE REFER TO PAGE 5 OF THIS REPORT FOR IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE AND ANALYST CERTIFICATION INFORMATION.

  • 5. Argus analysts commented, "We would consider a more constructive stance on AMGN on signs of stronger contributions from the company's new drug pipeline or from its biosimilars portfolio," the firm said."We note, however, that Amgen may not generate commercial revenue from biosimilars until 2019 due to regulatory and legal hurdles."
