  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We are Neutral on CORT with a 12-month price target of $17 based on value from Korlym. Yesterday, after market close, Corcept reported 3Q18 revenues of $64.4M & cash of $196.7M. Our model projects current cash & Korlym profits to fund operations through the P3 study of Relacorilant in Cushing’s as well as signal-seeking studies underway with several earlier candidates. 3Q call centered on sustainability of Korlym sales growth and Rela’s P3. Korlym sales grew 51% in 3Q18 compared to 3Q17. We believe that this growth is a result of the company’s effective outreach and education efforts to physicians that has yet to peak as there are prescribers it has yet to engage." (11/2/2018)
  • 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." (10/10/2018)
