What are Wall Street analysts saying about Corcept Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Corcept Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We have a N rating & a $14 PT for CORT based on our valuation of the Korlym + Rela’ franchise. We believe it’s about Rela’ and our question is when will it successfully complete the P3 in Cushing’s & displace Korlym? This thesis is our primary focus since it announced lower-than-projected Korlym rev for 4Q18 & 2019 guidance that points to limited upside potential (~20% midpoint of $285-315M)." (5/1/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Corcept is making good progress with its Cushing's syndrome drug, Korlym. Notably, its efforts to expand Korlym’s label are encouraging and should boost the drug’s commercial potential significantly. The company is also making attempts to develop its pipeline with its most advanced candidate relacorilant (CORT125134), currently under evaluation in a phase II study for Cushing's syndrome. The successful development of its pipeline candidates will further boost the company’s portfolio and lead to increased sales. However, Corcept’s share price movement shows that the stock has underperformed the industry year to date. Moreover, Corcept is solely dependent on Korlym for growth. A decline in Korlym sales will hinder the company’s growth prospects in the future quarters. Corcept has a positive record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (4/30/2019)
