What are Wall Street analysts saying about Esperion Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Esperion Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are reiterating our Buy rating and lowering our target price to $70 which reflects a more conservative pre-CVOT BPA/combo sales ramp and higher SG&A assumptions. Even with our more conservative forecasts, we believe ESPR is undervalued at these levels (EV of ~$700 million) as we think the stock continues to reflect investor skepticism on the commercial opportunity for BPA/ combo and the company’s cash runway. We view BPA/combo as a clinically de-risked asset with two upcoming and believe BPA’s CVOT design portends a high probability of success. Further, our recent KOL checks have been consistent with our past discussions (see deep dive) in validating what we believe is a meaningful commercial opportunity for BPA/combo in the statin intolerant population." (9/17/2019)
  • 2. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We are now modeling $0.69 in non-GAAP EPS on $97.8 million in revenue for FY/19." (8/29/2019)
  • 3. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We find the relevant statistical analyses in the NEJM publications roughly consistent with those of our consulted biostatisticians and still see the following open issues as unresolved:." (3/14/2019)
  • 4. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Esperion has no approved products in its portfolio. It focuses on developing new oral therapies for LDL-C lowering indications. The company’s pipeline products, bempedoic acid pill and bempedoic acid/Zetia combination pill achieved significant reduction in elevated bad cholesterol levels in hypercholesterolemia patients. The targeted area represents a significant opportunity. Esperion plans to file regulatory applications for both the candidates in the United States and Europe in the first half of 2019. However, Esperion neither has a marketed product nor a collaboration agreement to generate funds to support development and commercialization of its pipeline candidates. Esperion's share have outperformed the industry in past six months. Loss estimates have been stable ahead of Q4 earnings. Esperion has a mixed record of earnings surprise in the recent quarters."
