What are Wall Street analysts saying about Horizon Pharma stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Horizon Pharma stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Horizon faces intense competition from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and universities and other research institutions.Horizon is working on label expansion of drug like Ravicti. Failing to gain regulatory approval for label expansions would hamper drugs’ commercial potential. The company is exploring a broader clinical profile of Krystexxa including adapting its MIRROR immunomodulation study based on promising recent data to support the potential for registration.The company’s clinical programs continue to advance, with the recent presentation of new teprotumumab phase II data that underscore the durable efficacy observed in thyroid eye disease. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past year. Estimates have remained stable ahead of the Q4 results. The company has positive earnings surprise in the last few quarters." (2/8/2019)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We believe the event could have +10% upside/-30% downside to the stock (and is risky), because expectations for a positive read-out are already quite high. HZNP already advanced +17% YTD into the event. The company has discussed with us the opportunity as capturing 50% share in the 15,000-20,000 moderate/ severe active TED patients, with a $100K net price for treatment to achieve its estimates of >$750M. In contrast, we currently assume a ~15% share, and net price of $210K/treatment in 2020, with net price increases of 5% thereafter (based on prior mgmt. commentary on Orphan pricing). We will update our estimates after the data, which we believe will determine the commercial attractiveness of this compound. We reiterate our Neutral rating, and continue to view 2019 consensus earnings estimates as too high." (2/7/2019)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. 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."
