What are Wall Street analysts saying about Epizyme stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Epizyme stock:
  • 1. Cann analysts commented, "Epizyme’s Q2 loss per share of $0.42 was less than our estimated loss of $0.60. This primarily resulted from an unanticipated milestone payment of $10 million and lower than estimated operating expense of $42.3 million vs. our estimated $46.8 million. Importantly, the NDA for tazemetostat is now expected in H1 2019 rather than our prior expectation of year-end 2018. This results from Epizyme wanting to submit more mature data in the epithelioid sarcoma setting and wanting to have the clinical hold for tazemetostat resolved before filing with FDA." (8/2/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Epizyme's efforts on developing its lead candidate, tazemetostat, for a number of hematological malignancies and genetically defined solid tumors are impressive. The company is assessing its timeline for submitting a new drug application to the FDA for tazemetostat regarding follicular lymphoma. The company plans to file a first new drug application for tazemetostat with respect to epithelioid sarcoma in the fourth quarter of 2018. A potential approval for the candidate will be a significant boost to the company. Loss estimates have narrowed ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. Epizyme has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the year so far." (7/24/2018)
  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks. Our price target of $25 on Epizyme is based on a probability-adjusted sum-of-parts NPV-DCF: $21 EZH2 (NHL + INI-) + $1 DOT1L (MLL-R) + $3 cash. Risks to our investment thesis and target price include: (1) failure in clinical trials; (2) failure to secure regulatory approvals; and (3) a smaller- than-anticipated commercial opportunity due to market sizing, competition, and pricing.
