What are Wall Street analysts saying about Gilead Sciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gilead Sciences stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gilead’s HCV franchise continues to witness slowdown across key markets including the United States. and Europe, reflecting lower sales of Harvoni and Sovaldi as a result of competitive and pricing pressure. The franchise saw a significant plunge in sales due to new competition and fewer patient starts. Also, the HIV franchise faces competition from the likes of Glaxo, among others. While the Kite acquisition surely looks positive given the potential in the CAR T space, the deal looks expensive given the price Gilead paid. Nevertheless, Gilead’s HIV franchise maintains momentum, driven by the continued uptake of Genvoya and Odefsey, and the rapid adoption of Biktarvy. The FDA approval of Biktarvy has further widened the portfolio. Biktarvy has also been approved in Europe. Shares have outperfomed the industry in the last six months." (1/23/2019)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are increasing our price target to $88 from $87 and reiterating our Overweight rating. Gilead beat top and bottom line consensus expectations as the Biktarvy launch remains strong in HIV. Our price target is higher by $1/share given revenue trends were slightly more robust than we projected. The company also increased its product revenue guidance to $20.8-21.3B from $20-21B. Product revenues were $5.45B and EPS were $1.84/share. Biktarvy beat expectations by ~$50M, as it reported revenues of $375M. GILD has also benefited from a generic Letairis not entering the market, and it doesn’t expect an entrant in 2018. We have updated our estimates for the quarter." (10/26/2018)
  • 4. 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)
