What are Wall Street analysts saying about Biogen stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Biogen stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": Reiterate Neutral rating and $250 price target. Yesterday Novartis (NVS, NC) announced FDA approval of its oral S1P1 Mayzent (siponimod) in secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS), relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), and clinically isolated syndrome using a priority voucher. We think this broad label is somewhat unexpected given that the pivotal study and regulatory filings were for SPMS patients, and a negative headline for competitors such as Biogen and possibly Celgene CELG, OW). With competitive efficacy and a cleaner label vs. NVS’ first gen S1P1 Gilenya, we think the key question is if and how quickly Mayzent can take share in RRMS post launch in early 2Q." (3/27/2019)
  • 2. 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."
