What are Wall Street analysts saying about AveXis stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AveXis stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AveXis, Inc. is a gene therapy company which develops and commercializes treatments for neurological genetic diseases primarily in United States. The Company's product candidate consists of AVXS-101 which is in clinical trial for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy Type 1, the genetic cause of infant mortality. AveXis, Inc. is headquartered in Bannockburn, Illinois. " (5/7/2018)
  • 2. William Blair analysts commented, "We believe that other companies may begin to follow suit and see this as a positive for other AAV companies, most notably in our coverage, Spark (ONCE $62.06; Outperform) and Audentes (BOLD $28.11; Outperform)." (4/9/2018)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We expect a pre-BLA meeting in 2Q/3Q18, and potential regulatory approval in 2019 for type 1 SMA. We also see additional upside for AVXS-101 in SMA type 2 patients. KeyPoints Gene therapy is coming of age. After years of advancements and discovery in the field of gene therapy, we believe a number of companies are on the cusp of gaining approval for these novel one-time treatments. We see strong potential for leading candidate products and take confidence from the recent unanimous FDA approval of Spark’s (ONCE, Buy, $79 PT) Luxturna. A significant opportunity for gene therapy in the treatment of SMA. With approximately 60% of the incident SMA population affected by type 1 and limited treatment options, AveXis’ lead product candidate AVXS-101 could have a substantial impact. Given strong data from a recent phase 1 trial, we believe AVXS-101 could capture a significant market share in SMA type 1." (2/12/2018)
  • 4. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We would encourage buying on any AVXS weakness today, on the potential that the market may have understandably misunderstood what could be an atypical but stepped up process in terms of filing timelines for AVXS-101 in SMA type 1. Our take: Our base case (see our 15 June 2017 note) of a filing after pivotal STR1VE (NCT03306277) phase III data seems to have been improved upon. There are reasons to believe AveXis could file AVXS-101 by 3Q18, with a blue skies" scenario involving AVXS-101 approval by end-2018 or early-2019. We note AveXis’ appropriately non-promotional commentary when executing its duties in communicating status of important regulatory matters to the market." (1/5/2018)
