What are analysts saying about Gilead Sciences stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gilead Sciences stock:
- Mizuho analysts commented, "We are updating our GILD model post the company's 4Q'16 call. We maintain our Buy rating and lower our PT from $88 to $77 (vs the company's current stock price of $70) to account for the company's 4Q'16 results, 2017 guidance and comments around the HCV business." (3/1/2017)
- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Though expectations were relatively high going into the data, "sneak peek" at bic vs. dolu HTH ph.III HIV data at evening CROI press conference show GILD's integrase trending towards better efficacy vs. dolu-- explaining co's recent enthusiasm. Small study, but much needed good news for GILD and recall bictegravir will help maintain LT HIV franchise post-2025. Expect upside on increasing comfort on HIV franchise longevity given increasing dependence on HIV." (2/14/2017)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although Gilead’s fourth quarter results beat on both earnings and sales, the guidance for 2017 was disappointing. The HCV franchise continues to be under competitive and pricing pressure due to which the sales of Harvoni and Sovaldi have declined. Total HCV treatment starts in the U.S. were an estimated 231,000 in 2016, approximately 25,000 less than 2015. The company expects a further decline in patients starts in 2017. In addition, Gilead will lose exclusivity for Viread in 2017 in some countries outside the U.S. which should impact sales. Shares of Gilead have underperformed the biotech industry in the past one year. On a positive note, Epclusa’s uptake has been encouraging while the HIV franchise maintains momentum driven by the rapid adoption of TAF-based regimens. Strong uptake for Truvada for use in the pre-exposure prophylaxis setting should also boost sales." (2/13/2017)
- Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Gilead reported 4Q16 financial results yesterday. Total 4Q16 revenue of $7.32B exceeded our $6.86B and consensus $7.14B estimates, driven by strong Epclusa launch in HCV ($1.05B WW). HCV sales overall, however, continue to fall and mgmt issued 2017 sales guidance below expectations. We remain cautious given revenue trajectory and maintain HOLD." (2/8/2017)
Cowen and Company analysts commented, "Effective Jan. 1, the U.S. price of Atripla has been increased by 2.3%." (1/6/2017)
