What are analysts saying about Depomed stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Depomed stock:

  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "After the March 28 close, DEPO announced an agreement with Starboard that replaces CEO Jim Schoeneck as well as two incumbent board members. Guidance for 1Q17 revenue was also released, $95-100M vs. FactSet estimate." (3/29/2017)
  • 2. Janney Montgomery Scott analysts commented, "Recent developments in the 2013 patent litigation brought by DEPO against Purdue have resulted in DEPO filing an amended complaint claiming Purdue willfully violated its patents. The dispute pertains to DEPO's claim that Purdue's abuse-deterrent formulation of OxyContin, which was approved by the FDA on April 5, 2010 and subsequently commercialized, relies on inventions protected by patents for DEPO's Acuform?? drug delivery technology. With a potential royalty on cumulative net sales of $10 billion at stake, we have previously estimated, and continue to believe, a damage award of $200 million or more is possible, with little to no downside risk to DEPO in the process. We note our prior estimate did not contemplate an enhanced damage award that may result in a treble (3x) damages if DEPO prevails." (2/27/2017)
