What are Wall Street analysts saying about Esperion Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Esperion Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Esperion announced encouraging fourth quarter results, wherein earnings and revenues beat estimates. The company received approval for its two drugs, Nexletol and Nexlizet, in February 2020, which was a major boost. The company plans to launch Nexletol in March and Nexlizet in July. Regulatory applications seeking approval for these drugs are under review in Europe. Both candidates have achieved significant reduction in elevated LDL-C levels in hypercholesterolemia patients. The targeted area represents a significant opportunity. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, Esperion is heavily dependent on the successful commercialization of Nexletol and Nexlizet. The company will likely face stiff competition as its drugs target a crowded market. Esperion also has no other pipeline candidates." (3/26/2020)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. 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)
