Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Biogen stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our PT of $363/share is based on a discounted cash flow analysis using a 10% discount rate and 2% growth rate, in line with the expected discount and growth parameters of a commercial multiproduct biotechnology company. Risks to our investment thesis and target price include: (1) failure in clinical studies; (2) failure to secure regulatory approval; and (3) a smaller than anticipated commercial opportunity due to market size, competition, and/or pricing." (2/19/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and $400 12-month price target. Biogen hosted a webcast this morning to outline its strategy in multiple sclerosis (MS), focusing on the pipeline as well as lifecycle management for the $9B base business. We saw detailed commentary about specific lifecycle management plans as most important. We think BIIB098 could be another option for new patients or Tecfidera switches. Although investors remain focused on aducanumab, we think understanding long-term MS growth is of similar importance." (12/12/2018)
