What are Wall Street analysts saying about Heron Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Heron Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We note that this follow-up to P3 study complemented a previously reported study in hernia repair wherein 90% of patients receiving HTX-011 and an OTC analgesic did NOT require opioid pain management through 72 hours post-op, w/ 81% remaining opioid-free after 28 days post-op. We anticipate a clear path to approval for HTX-011 on or about its PDUFA action date of April 30, 2019, supported by the robust P3 registration trial data, which demonstrated HTX-011’s safety and efficacy. We believe HTX-011’s clinical differentiation from existing bupivacaine therapies positions HTX-011 to emerge as the standard of care for multiple surgical models, supporting peak sales potential >$1B." (3/11/2019)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We continue to like the near-term setup for shares ahead of HTX-011’s PDUFA on and believe it is a product launch investors should own given its superior clinical data relative to the incumbent brand, PCRX’s (Sell, $39.58) Exparel. The market opportunity for non-opioid, long-acting analgesics is large (~29 million procedures) and minimally penetrated. With an increased focus to reduce acute and chronic opioid usage, we think HRTX coming to market second with a more efficacious product will yield a faster sales ramp relative to Exparel’s launch now that the non-opioid, long-acting analgesic category is established." (2/22/2019)
  • 3. 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. " (1/9/2019)
  • 4. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We reiterate our OW rating and expect upward earnings revisions, along with an approval of HTX-011, to drive HRTX shares higher. We expect upside to come from Cinvanti and HTX-011. Valuation Summary We use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to reach our 12-month price target of $50." (12/31/2018)
  • 5. Mizuho analysts commented, "We expect HTX-011 to receive broad label and we see potential for a quicker review process by the FDA for a mid-2019 approval. We reiterate our Buy rating and raise our PT to $41." (6/22/2018)
