What are analysts saying about Horizon Pharma PLC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Horizon Pharma PLC stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Horizon has been focused on expanding its orphan drug business.The company has been quite active on the acquisition front over the past few quarters. 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 Jun 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 underperformed the industry. With the company’s efforts to expand Actimmune’s label suffered a setback, focus will be on Krystexxa’s performance. Stiff competition for drugs will also impact sales." (10/10/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We are maintaining our Overweight rating and $17, 12 month PT for HZNP shares, but lowering our 2017 and 2018 EPS estimates because we have taken out some sales for the Raptor franchise now that Horizon has completed the sale of its EU marketing rights to Chiesi (Not Covered). We continue to expect Krystexxa sales to be impacted by the 340b program in 4Q17, which could prove conservative. Please see our note for details Potential HHS Delay Could Be Positive for HZNP’s Krystexxa Sales This Year. We expect orphan drug sales to increase 50% YOY which is in line with Horizon’s guidance, and rheumatology sales to increase 37% YOY, which is also roughly in line with Horizon’s guidance. Valuation. We use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to get to our 12-month price target of $17." (9/11/2017)
  • 3. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "We had the opportunity to travel with Horizon senior management in meetings with investors. We gained additional insight into Pennsaid 2% and Ravicti, and also came away with insights into management's latest thinking regarding M&A. Though there are undoubtedly some headwinds facing the primary care segment, we believe that this segment should be on largely stable footing over the long-term given HZNP's payer contracting efforts. That dynamic combined with continued strength from the rare disease segment points to a long-term EPS CAGR (2017-2022) in the mid-teens, and should translate into multiple expansion with a 2017E P/E currently at 7x. We reiterate our Overweight rating and are lowering our PT to $30 from $32 (see below for more details)." (3/24/2017)
  • 4. Guggenheim analysts commented, "HZNP reported a 4Q16 beat, underscoring our confidence that HZNP can continue to meet or exceed earnings expectations in '17+. Post 4Q16, we think that the peak sales potential of Pennsaid 2%, Procysbi, and Krystexxa are underappreciated, with additional earnings upside potentially coming from M&A as HZNP redeploys cash generated by its Primary Care ("PC") business into business development focused on orphan and rare disease indication medicines. While concerns remain over growth prospects for HZNP's PC business, Ravicti and Actimmune, these assets continue to generate meaningful cash to fuel HZNP's growth aspiration of $2B in sales by 2020." (2/27/2017)
  • 5. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are positive on HZNP ahead of the February 27 earnings call: We think the company may deliver a 4Q:16 earnings beat. We model 4Q:16 revenues of $325.4M and EPS of $0.57 relative to consensus $308.5M and $0.50 and implied guidance $309-$314M. Horizon has delivered strong beats in the past and we expect adjusted EBITDA to approach the higher end of the guidance range of $450-$460M. With respect to 2017 guidance, we fall below FactSet consensus estimates of $1,289.7M and $2.39 (we model $1,281.8M and $2.29), but note that Horizon may be able to beat this range via a combination of both price and volume growth, so guidance could come in stronger than expected. There is still significant uncertainty around business operation under the new PBM contracts, gross to net discounts, infrastructure needs, and the timing of anticipated volume growth. We therefore expect the focus of the call to be around these issues as well as on future business development targets and pipeline outlook." (2/22/2017)
