What are analysts saying about Flexion Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Flexion Therapeutics stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company. It is focused on the development and commercialization of injectable pain therapies. The Company is targeting anti-inflammatory and analgesic therapies for the treatment of patients with musculoskeletal conditions. It operates in the United States. The Company's product candidate, FX006, is an injectable intra-articular, meaning in the joint, sustained-release treatment for patients with moderate to severe OA pain. It is developing two additional product candidates, FX007 for post-operative pain and FX005 to treat end-stage OA patients. Flexion Therapeutics, Inc. is headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts. " (5/9/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "OpEx Increases in 2017: FLXN reported 4Q16 and YE results of ($0.79) and ($2.84), below our estimates due to higher R&D and SG&A expense. Management noted on the call that R&D expense should increase given the on going repeat-dose study and manufacturing ramp with SG&A ramping through the 2H17 as launch preparation get fully underway. FLXN finished the quarter with $210M in cash which we estimate gives them funding through mid-2018. We have adjusted our estimates to reflect quarter results. PDUFA and Beyond: We view the acceptance of the NDA without the need to provide additional data as an incremental positive, removing an overhang in the minds of some investors. We see investors now turning to the prospective label with the potential for differentiation in the diabetic sub-population and a repeat- dose sNDA filing which could be on label by 2019. Additional label expansion into other joints including shoulder and hip are also possibilities though not near term." (3/14/2017)
  • 3. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "While the company did not receive a priority review, we had not been expecting that, and had always assumed a standard 10-month review. It was good to see the FDA accept the NDA with no major issues, and we remain confident in the approval of Zilretta at the PDUFA. Reiterate our Outperform; FLXN remains a top pick." (2/7/2017)
