  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate our Overweight rating and $65 PT for ARNA stock. With convincing POC established for lead drug candidate ralinepag and encouraging data generated from the etrasimod and olorinab programs, we believe the ARNA stock narrative will shift to investors analyzing how the assets fit into the evolving treatment landscape. Particularly as it relates to the first two, we believe the assets should be viewed as potentially best in class." (11/7/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Arena mgmt provided a corporate update today in a 4Q17 conference call. Mgmt reiterated guidance for top-line results from etrasimod Phase 2 trial in Ulcerative Colitis (UC) later this month. Preclinical and Phase 1 data suggest the drug has the potential for differentiation in the S1P receptor modulator space. We await outcome, maintaining HOLD. Mgmt also discussed ralinepag Phase 3 trial design in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). Three trials are planned, two of which mgmt believes are independently sufficient for regulatory approval. Mgmt plans to provide more details around cost and time to completion mid-2018 after protocols are finalized." (3/14/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Arena’s only approved product is Belviq, used for chronic weight management. Though it was the first obesity drug to be approved by the FDA in over a decade, is yet to impress with its performance. However, the company’s partnership agreements and efforts to improve the performance of the drug are impressive. We are also encouraged by the company’s cost-reduction initiatives to streamline the organization to support its development programs. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the last one year. On the flip side, Arena’s pipeline consists of early-to-mid stage candidates, still several years from commercialization. Plus, competition remains intense in the obesity market with both branded and generic players. " (3/9/2018)
