What are Wall Street analysts saying about Gilead Sciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gilead Sciences stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gilead is now banking on its HIV franchise and newer avenues like the CAR-T therapy to drive growth. The HIV franchise maintains momentum driven by the rapid adoption of Descovy-based regimens. The FDA approval of Biktarvy has further widened the portfolio. Biktarvy has also been approved in Europe which should boost sales further. The initial uptake of Yescarta is encouraging in the United States and the CHMP gave a positive opinion on the same. Meanwhile, Gilead is intending to foray into the NASH market with selonsertib and filgotinib. Both the candidates are being evaluated in late stage studies and a tentative approval will diversify Gilead’s portfolio. Shares have outperformed the industry in the year so far. Estimates for Q2 are up by two cents in the last thirty days ahead of the results (scheduled for July 25). However, Gilead’s HCV franchise is under pressure due to competitive and pricing pressure." (7/18/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Gilead reported $5.09B 1Q18 total revenue, below our $5.52B and consensus $5.3B ests. Product sales were $5.00B, below our $5.41B est. Gilead continues to lose share to Abbvie in HCV. Trend is worrisome, although mgmt still guiding for market share stabilization mid-2018. HIV sales in 1Q18 also disappointed, reportedly driven by bigger than expected seasonal inventory draw-down and generic TDF. Growth in HIV (i.e. Biktarvy success) is critical. NASH program has not yet distinguished itself, awaiting data from selonsertib Phase 3 trials (1H19) and 48wk combination Phase 2 trials (2020). Yescarta and cell therapy programs are in early stages." (5/2/2018)
  • 3. Leerink Swann analysts commented, "RARE’s 4Q report this afternoon was relatively in line with expectations. Incremental clinical updates for burosumab in young children and in adults with osteomalacia (bone softening) in the report further support the drug’s utility in both populations. The year ahead is shaping up to be catalyst-rich for RARE, with data from two gene therapy programs, the Phase 3 of trihep in Glut1 DS, and a decision on trihep registration plans in FAOD expected over the coming months. Although we continue to expect a slow rollout of burosumab (PDUFA date 4/17/18) and Mepsevii, we see opportunity for further upside in shares over the course of 2018. Maintain OW." (2/22/2018)
  • 4. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "Early biopotency signals from a single patient dosed with ABO-101 (for Sanfilippo B), demonstrate targeted reduction on toxic sugars." (2/7/2018)
