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 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gilead’s 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 launch of Yescarta is progressing well in the United States and the approval in Europe will further boost sales. Meanwhile, Gilead is intending to foray into the nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and inflammation market with late-stage candidates,  selonsertib and filgotinib, respectively. A tentative approval will diversify Gilead’s portfolio. Shares have outperformed the industry in the year so far. However, Gilead’s HCV franchise is under pressure due to competitive and pricing pressure. The departure of the CEO at this crucial time further clouds the growth prospects of the company." (9/25/2018)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. 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)
  • 5. 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)
