What are Wall Street analysts saying about Epizyme stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Epizyme stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Epizyme is in the process of reopening enrollment in all of its company-sponsored trials in the United States, including the follicular lymphoma (FL) EZH2 activating mutation cohort of its phase II non-Hodgkin lymphoma study for its lead candidate, tazemetostat's clinical studies after the FDA lifted partial clinical hold on it. Further, the company also delayed the filing of its first NDA for tazemetostat for the treatment of epithelioid sarcoma to the first half of 2019, instead of the fourth quarter of 2018. With no approved product in its portfolio, Epizyme is yet to generate revenues. However, the company's is making efforts to develop tazemetostat for a number of hematological malignancies and genetically defined solid tumors. The company presented encouraging new clinical data regarding tazemetostat’s anti-tumor activity and tolerability in follicular lymphoma and mesothelioma. Loss estimates have narrowed ahead of Q3 release." (10/16/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 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. Epizyme, Inc." (6/27/2018)
