Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Horizon Pharma stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We reiterate our Buy rating on Krystexxa momentum and upcoming teprotumumab Phase III data (expected 2Q:19)." (11/7/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We are raising our 12-month PT for HZNP shares to $23 from $21. The increase in our PT is driven by multiple expansion. We think this is deserved because continued solid execution from the management team underscores our belief that the peak sales potential of HZNP’s orphan/rare disease as well as rheumatology businesses are underappreciated." (10/18/2018)
  • 3. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "Sarepta (SRPT) reported 2Q18 sales/earnings and provided a business update on 8/8. Exondys51 sales of $74M topped our expectations (see below) by 5%, and accelerated sequentially in 2Q18, after a slight dip in 1Q18. However, SRPT kept its FY18 guidance unchanged. OPEX is increasing faster than expectations, with FY18E non-GAAP OPEX potentially >2X 2016 levels of $198M. With sales growth starting to slow to high single digits Q/Q, focus is increasingly turning to the early/mid-stage pipeline to deliver commercial products in the near term. We continue to believe that gene therapy projects will take a minimum of 3-5 years to get to market and the exon- skipping agents (53 & 45) on-market by 2020. We stay neutral on the name." (8/9/2018)
  • 4. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Horizon Pharma’s orphan and rheumatology business units witnessed strong growth. We expect Krystexxa, Ravicti and Actimmune to drive further growth. The acquisition of teprotumumab has further diversified the company’s portfolio. However, revenues from primary care business units declined due to the implementation of a new commercial model where the company is contracting with pharmacy benefit managers and payers to help patients obtain access to its medicines. In June 2017, Horizon Pharma sold the marketing rights for Procysbi and Quinsair in Europe, the Middle East and Africa to Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A. to focus on higher return businesses. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry so far this year." (7/17/2018)
