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. 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)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". Post 2Q18, we are reiterating our Overweight rating and our 12-month price target of $4.50. BDSI continues to evolve into a commercial- stage company with solid growth from its lead product, Belbuca. During the quarter, Belbuca TRxs were up 80% over 2Q17, and were up 31% over 1Q18. Fundamentally, BDSI continues to perform very well, and with the financing overhang removed, a new CEO and CMO, and with strong additions to the Board, we believe that investors will be rewarded by BDSI’s solid execution in 2018 and beyond." (8/9/2018)
  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks. We assume Belbuca continues to grow rapidly to $125M by 2022 (approximately $150M peak), with BDSI cash- flow positive in 2020, and fully profitable by 2021. Our $3.50 12- month price target is based on a DCF with an 11% WACC discount, and negative -15% terminal growth beyond 2027." (7/6/2018)
