What are Wall Street analysts saying about Gilead Sciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gilead Sciences stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and $87 Price Target. We do not think today’s announcement that GILD’s STELLAR3 study was unsuccessful will be met with much surprise after the previous STELLAR4 failure: no changes to our estimates. The fibrosis improvement was least for the high dose and greatest for the placebo with a p-value at the higher dose of 0.42 and at lower dose it was 0.93. After both STELLAR Ph3 readouts we are focused on how Gilead will advance its strategy in NASH; we think M&A could be a strategy." (4/25/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gilead’s HIV franchise maintains momentum, driven by continued uptake of Genvoya and Odefsey, and the rapid adoption of Biktarvy. However, the company’s HCV franchise continues to witness a slowdown across key markets, including the United States and Europe, as a result of competition and pricing pressure. Consequently, Gilead shifted focus to its HIV franchise, and newer avenues like CAR-T therapy and NASH. However, the company suffered a setback with the failure of a late-stage study on selonsertib in patients with compensated cirrhosis (F4) due to NASH. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past six months." (4/23/2019)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Gilead and Galapagos NV (GLPG – NR) reported positive data from two P3 studies of JAK1 inhibitor filgotinib in treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA); FINCH-1 and FINCH-3. Recall the FINCH-2 trial read-out in 3Q18. All three trials met their primary endpoints as well as multiple secondary endpoints." (3/29/2019)
  • 4. Mizuho analysts commented, "We spoke to GILD. The company was able to confirm the title and time, and it noted that yes, this this is the pivotal DISCOVER trial, but couldn’t say exactly what data we will get. The company also confirmed that it’s a late-breaker and also an oral presentation. Clinicaltrials.gov still shows an active" status, but GILD noted to us that in general (not necessarily specific to this particular Descovy entry) clincaltrials.gov results can be presented at a lag. We note that oral presentations typically need to be informative, can’t just be baseline data, etc … our best guess is we’re getting both efficacy and safety data." (2/26/2019)
