What are Wall Street analysts saying about Editas Medicine stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Editas Medicine stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Editas posted narrower-than-expected loss in Q3 while revenues almost matched estimates. Its lead candidate EDIT-101, which uses CRISPR gene editing to treat LCA10, a genetic illness that causes blindness, is being developed in partnership with Allergan. The disease has a significant unmet need as no therapies are presently approved. A phase I/II dose escalation study on EDIT-101 initiated patient enrolment in July 2019. Editas has some high-profile collaborations with big pharma companies for its CRISPR technology, which provide research support and funds to pursue its pipeline development. It is also developing EDIT-301 for sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia. However, due to lack of a marketed product, Editas is heavily dependent on its partners for collaboration revenues, which remains a concern. Shares have underperformed year to date." (11/14/2019)
