What are Wall Street analysts saying about Corcept Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Corcept Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Corcept is making good progress with its Cushing's syndrome drug Korlym. The drug has witnessed higher sales and strong uptake since its approval. Korlym’s label expansion programs are also promising and should boost its commercial potential in future quarters. Corcept's most advanced candidate relacorilant is currently under evaluation in a phase III study for Cushing's syndrome. The successful development of its pipeline candidates will further boost the company’s growth and lead to increased sales. However, Corcept is solely dependent on Korlym for growth. A decline in Korlym sales will hinder the company’s growth prospects in the future. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. Estimates looks stable ahead of Q4 earnings release. Corcept has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (2/4/2020)
  • 2. 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)
