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’s first-quarter results were disappointing with both earnings and sales missing estimates as the magnitude of the decline in HCV sales was wider-than-expected due to lower patient starts and increasing competition. Nevertheless, 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. The CHMP has also adopted a positive opinion on the regimen and a tentative approval is expected in the third-quarter. The initial uptake of Yescarta is encouraging. 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 performed better than the industry in the last twelve months." (5/7/2018)
  • 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)
  • 5. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We returned from Beijing, China and listened as Tim Moore, EVP of Technical Operations and the CEO of Fosun Kite Biotechnology co. (Richard Wang) presented manufacturing plans for the launch of Yescarta, and the opportunity in China (see the slides in the pages that follow). Suffice to say, we were impressed and left clear with the notion that Gilead (and Kite) can overcome manufacturing challenges to commercialize in the U.S. and globally, especially China, this new innovative therapy. As a result, we are upgrading Gilead to Buy, from Hold and establishing a $94 price target." (11/30/2017)
