What are Wall Street analysts saying about Epizyme stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Epizyme stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We believe EPZM’s trial is no exception. As far as we know, BAP1 loss is more frequently associated with peritoneal MM while pleural MM is the most prevalent (~80%), and is also more frequently associated with MM of epitheliod origin (~88% of patients in this study). Thus, it is almost impossible to extrapolate the potential survival benefit from this specific patient group without a properly controlled, well matched placebo arm. We believe such a trial at most serves to provide depth with respect to the human PK/PD for tazemetostat, proof of concept for clinical activity and potentially to point to patient subpopulations with enriched efficacy signals." (5/21/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Epizyme reported narrower than expected loss in the fourth quarter of 2017. Epizyme's efforts on developing its lead candidate, tazemetostat, for a number of hematological malignancies and genetically defined solid tumors are impressive. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the company had a productive interaction with the FDA to design the registration strategy for tazemetostat for epithelioid sarcomaand follicular lymphoma (FL) and identified a path to submit for accelerated approval for both the indications. The company plans to file a first new drug application of tazemetostat for epithelioid sarcoma in fourth quarter of 2018 and second NDA for FL in 2019. A potential approval for the candidate will be a significant boost for the company. So far this year, Epizyme’s share price has also outperformed the industry. However, the company is highly dependent on its collaboration partners for top-line growth with no approved product." (3/16/2018)
  • 3. Cann analysts commented, "Epizyme presented two posters at the American Society of Hematology Meeting on December 10-11, 2017. These included a biomarker study in non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) and preliminary response data from the diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) cohort from the ongoing phase II study of tazemetostat in NHL. The data presented is very supportive of our outlook." (12/12/2017)
