  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate our Overweight rating and $20 12-month PT on Amicus following initial presentations and conversations at WORLDSymposium, which we are attending. Amicus has a large presence at the conference, with the largest booth. We believe this conference will serve as an important platform, given it is one of the first major conferences following Galafold’s U.S. approval. While additional clinical data are an important part of the study, our focus remains on the patient and physician perspectives post-launch." (2/5/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "2018 was great for Amicus as it received U.S. approval forits only marketed drug Galafold, expanded its pipeline to include 14 new gene therapy programs for rare metabolic diseases and also presented a positive 18-month data for its differentiated Pompe pipeline product. Amicus estimates peak sales opportunity for Galafold to be more than $500 million. The company also expects to almost double the revenues for Galafold in 2019. However, it depends heavily on Galafold sales, which remains a concern. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry in the past year. Loss estimates have remained stable ahead of the Q4 earnings release and the company came up with average negative surprise for the trailing four reported quarters." (2/4/2019)
