What are Wall Street analysts saying about Heron Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Heron Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Heron Therapeutics Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company. The company is developing products using its proprietary Biochronomer (TM) polymer-based drug delivery platform. Its product portfolio includes APF530, is being developed for the prevention of acute chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Heron Therapeutics Inc., formerly known as A.P. Pharma, Inc., is based in REDWOOD CITY CA. " (1/4/2020)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We remain highly constructive on the name as ‘011’s differentiated product profile and today’s opioid awareness environment should help propel adoption of the product in a wide range of surgical procedures. We’ve updated the model following earnings; PT remains $75 (OP).  HRTX is confident that the answers to the FDA’s CRL are readily addressed. We will likely see a press release after the NDA is refiled, and the company plans to request a Type A meeting. The key dislocation: the company’s ‘011 timelines have reset, but the commercial opportunity remains unchanged. With the stock trading at these levels, we continue to see substantial upside if the company can execute its launch strategy." (8/13/2019)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are reiterating our Buy rating and $38 target price on HRTX shares after the company reported a nice sales beat driven by Cinvanti and provided a incremental update indicating it plans to meet with the FDA shortly" to discuss the responses to the CRL it received in May for HTX-011. We remain positive on HTX-011’s approvability as a local, non-opioid analgesic and given the low visibility into the company’s CRL resolution process, we think today’s update could suggest we are nearing a more material one on this front. We continue to view this as the company’s key upcoming catalyst." (8/5/2019)
  • 4. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We believe these requirements are addressable, and anticipate resubmission prior to YE19, w/ approval in late-1H2020 or earlier. Heron Therapeutics reported 2Q results, with topline results beating expectations and EPS aligned with consensus. Product sales totaled $36.7MM, vs. our forecast of $32.3MM and the consensus of $31.8MM, respectively. Topline results reflected continued strength of CINVANTI, which posted sales of $33.2MM vs. our forecast of $28.5MM. CINVANTI sales advanced significantly sequentially from $28.0MM. SUSTOL sales were flat at $3.5MM, reflecting continued pressure from arbitrage relating to generic entry of palonestron. Importantly, Heron reiterated full-year product sales guidance of $115MM-to-$120MM. Operating loss and EPS were aligned with our expectations at ($51.8MM) and ($0.63), respectively." (8/5/2019)
  • 5. Cowen Inc analysts commented, ": Post 1Q19, we are reiterating our Overweight rating and $18 PT on CHMA. We believe the stock continues to trade at a significant discount to its potential intrinsic value. We believe the risk-reward going into Phase 3 data for Mycapssa (oral octreotide) for the treatment of acromegaly, to be released in 3Q19, remains positive. As the company advances Mycapssa toward approval, we expect data readouts, approvals, and upward earnings revisions to drive CHMA’s stock higher." (5/9/2019)
