What are Wall Street analysts saying about Catalyst Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Catalyst Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Catalyst's Firdapse is the company’s first approved product. The drug is the first FDA-approved treatment for Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS) in adults, which was approved in November 2018 and launched in January. The company generated entire first-quarter revenues from Firdapse. Catalyst is also developing Firdapse to treat additional rare neuromuscular diseases. However, all the other candidates in its portfolio are in early stages of development. Thus, the successful development and commercialization of drug candidates are highly crucial for the company. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry year to date. Estimates have remained stable ahead of the Q2 results. The company has a mixed record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (7/31/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and PT of $10 per share of CPRX. the FDA approved private company the treatment of LEMS in pts 6 to <17 years of age. This is the first drug approved for pediatric LEMS. However, Catalyst's slighty different salt form of amifampridine, marketed as Firdapse, was the first drug approved for LEMS, but for adults only. We were surprised by this announcement as no clinical studies were conducted in the pediatric population that we are aware of, and the approval relied on studies of the drug in adults with LEMS, including PK data that were then modeled/extrapolated to identify the dosing regimen in pediatric pts."" (5/7/2019)
  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We raised our PT to $9 from $6 in view of the additional color on the commercial front. We adjusted the launch cost of and lowered the peak penetration from 25% to 18%." (12/14/2018)
