What are Wall Street analysts saying about Intercept Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Intercept Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Intercept’s lead drug Ocaliva’s performance has been strong in the year so far. Management’s efforts to increase awareness about the label update of the drug in 2018 and expand sales force across the United States, thereafter, are yielding results. Solid growth in patient enrollment is likely to drive the company’s performance. Meanwhile, Intercept is working to expand the drug’s label in the promising NASH space. While the failure of Gilead’s late-stage study on selonsertib in patients suffering from compensated cirrhosis due to NASH puts Intercept ahead in the race, additional results from the REGENERATE study in NASH were mixed and did not impress investors. Nevertheless, a potential approval in this indication will significantly boost growth. However, shares have underperformed the industry in the year so far." (10/14/2019)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are reiterating our Hold rating on ICPT after the company reported a slight 2Q19 beat on Ocaliva revenues, which appear to have been aided by a benefit in channel inventories. With that said, our thesis remains unchanged and we think there are too many unknown variables in terms of OCA’s potential adcom/approval and launch in NASH for us to be comfortable recommending the stock here. Management remains on track to file its NDA for OCA in NASH by the end of this quarter followed by its MAA filing in the EU in 4Q19. We think investor focus remains on the potential for OCA in NASH and in particular: whether or not ICPT’s filing of a NDA for OCA in NASH (rather than a sNDA) can lead to bi- furcated/indication based pricing, potential payer/reimbursement dynamics in the NASH category and the use of non-invasive biomarkers vs. biopsy for diagnosis."
