Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Esperion Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company. It focused on the research, development and commercialization of therapies for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and other cardiometabolic risk factors. Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. is based in Plymouth, Michigan. " (7/10/2018)
  • 2. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We see numerous reasons for our new positive bias, including: A path forward for both BA and a BA+ezetimibe (BA+eze) fixed dose combo (FDC) has been confirmed by the FDA. A definition of statin intolerance has also been agreed on by the FDA. KOLs (e.g. Dr. Nissen) support the need for therapies for patients who are (or believe themselves to be) statin intolerant and refuse statins. CANTOS suggests BA’s high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) lowering effect is highly relevant for CV event reduction and outcomes. Newly-disclosed integrated phase II results suggest sound BA safety. A larger market opportunity results from a pivotal BA phase III design that includes patients “on any statin dose.” Limited use of PCSK9 inhibitors, due to pricing, opens an opportunity. Merck’s (unrated) decision not to file anacetrapib for approval further confirms oral CETP inhibitors as uninteresting assets or competitors." (12/5/2017)
