What are Wall Street analysts saying about Horizon Pharma stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Horizon Pharma stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We Think Raised Guidance is Possible Once 340B Delay is Official; Reiterate Buy Rating Buy Previous Rating No Change Price (5/04) $14.24 Price Target $18.00 Previous Price Target No Change 340B Rule delay may not be entirely surprising, but still positive: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) proposed to further delay the effective date of the 340B drug pricing program from July 1, 2018, to July 1, 2019. Mgmt. expects an official decision on this delay within a few days or weeks after Memorial Day (May 28). Because the delay will not be finalized before Horizon’s May 9 earnings call, we think the company may not raise guidance this week, but could discuss a range of potential upside estimates on its call. The company’s current revenue guidance is $1.15B-$1.18B. We think there is some investor trepidation about seasonal weakness into the print that could improve due to this update. We reiterate our Buy rating and note our model does not yet include this upside." (5/7/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Horizon Pharma’s orphan and rheumatology business units have continued to show 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. Moreover, in June 2017, Horizon Pharma sold the marketing rights for Procysbi and Quinsair in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa regions to Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A. as the company focuses on higher-return businesses. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past six months. Estimates have remained stable ahead of the Q1 earnings results. The company has a mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (5/4/2018)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Message in a bottle/vial. The four doctors we spoke with were positive on the safety and efficacy of Horizon’s Krystexxa. One of the four doctors believed that Krystexxa was a ‘wonder’ drug and was bullish on its growth prospects. The other three doctors were more measured. They all agreed that Krystexxa is a very good drug, but were not convinced it would be widely used among rheumatologists because it works best for a small group of refractory patients. The main barrier to uptake is not anaphylaxis. There are two reasons doctors don’t widely use Krystexxa: 1) the high cost relative to standard of care; 2) because it’s an IV, while the standard of care is oral." (3/14/2018)
