What are Wall Street analysts saying about Biogen stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Biogen stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We updated our model post the 2Q18 earnings call and BAN2401 data last week." (7/31/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks. Our PT of $363/share is based on a discounted cash flow analysis using a 10% discount rate and 2.5% 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." (7/9/2018)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "MS franchise appears poised for modest negative growth. A tepid patient population growth rate combined with encroaching competition from new agents means existing franchise assets may have achieved peak revenues already, in our opinion." (10/24/2017)
  • 4. Citigroup Inc analysts commented, "We're downgrading the stock to neutral from buy as we don't think the street fully appreciates Avexis competition and in coming 6-12 months we think MS pricing concerns in form of greater rebating get louder as we approach Gilenya losing patent and Celgene's Ozanimod launch," (10/23/2017)
  • 5. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "gigantic" aducanumab phase 3 trial, which started in 2015 and was 50 percent enrolled in the second quarter of 2017, Shrader commented in his upgrade note. This should be seen as a "no news is good news" scenario as the Data and Safety Monitoring Board has likely seen a lot of data and hasn't reported anything negative.Second, Biogen's partner Eisai is set to report an interim outlook at its plaque-busting mAb that targets the form of Ab plaque thought to lead to neuronal destruction, the analyst continued. The only possible negative outcome would be strong plaque removal with no hints of cognitive benefit and any other result could either be very good or OK.Third, Biogen's often ignored stroke programs address a very large market. Of particular note, the company's Tysabri stoke program uncovered the "same cognitive and energy benefits in stroke patients that are routinely reported in MS patients" and turning this effect into a clinical endpoint that would be acceptable for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is the likely next step.Finally, Ocrelizumab as part of the company's base business is "meh not mud," the analyst added. The therapy remains a drug with "remarkable anti inflammatory properties," but a commercial rollout will likely be "measured." (10/17/2017)
