What are Wall Street analysts saying about BioDelivery Sciences International stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BioDelivery Sciences International stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". After a day of meetings with BDSI CEO Herm Cukier earlier this week, we are reiterating our Overweight rating and 12-month price target of $5. We view BDSI as a Belbuca execution story, and, based on Symphony script data so far in 2018, the company is exceeding its execution goals as well as our expectations. The sentiment at the meetings was positive with a common theme of delving into whether the company has the foundation to continue to execute in 2019 as it has in 2018. Following the meetings, we have increased conviction that solid execution in 2019 and beyond is likely to continue, which should drive upward earnings revisions and further upside in BDSI stock. Detailed takeaways are below." (12/13/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our $5, 12-month price target is based on a DCF reflecting strong Belbuca growth to over $150M by 2022, cash- flow breakeven by end-2019, and overall profitability in 2020. Our DCF reflects a 10.5% WACC discount and negative -15% terminal value beyond 2027, and includes 93M shares (post-financing, plus other currently anti-dilutive shares)." (11/2/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "BioDelivery secured improved positioning in several managed care contracts providing preferred access to its two drugs, Bunavail and belbuca. This has already started to boost the drug’s sales and profitability in 2018. Meanwhile, launch of Belbuca in Canada for severe pain is also supporting sales growth. Appointment of Herm Cukier, who has a good track record of bringing growth, as its new CEO bodes well for the company. BioDelivery’s shares have outperformed the industry in the past three months. However, given the lackluster performance of Bunavail, BioDelivery decided to reduce spending on the drug. Moreover, the company’s portfolio as well as its pipeline candidates may also face severe competition as it targets a highly genericized and crowded market. Loss estimates have been mixed ahead of the company’s Q3 earnings release. The company has a mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (10/15/2018)
