What are Wall Street analysts saying about Intercept Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Intercept Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and $170 PT. Positive Ph3 data on fibrosis de-risk this binary readout. Intercept announced this morning that the 25mg dose hit on one of the key endpoints, which is a one point change in fibrosis stage (OCA 23.1%, placebo 11.9%, p-value=0.0002). They saw a numerical trend on NASH resolution in the 25mg. Although this endpoint did not hit (25mg p-value=0.1268), we believe that the data profile for OCA will support approval; fibrosis is relevant for potential liver outcomes. Since there was a p-value of 0.0013 when F1 co-morbidities were added, we are interested to see more analysis around NASH resolution." (2/19/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Intercept got a significant boost with the approval of Ocaliva for the treatment of PBC. Although sales had earlier taken a hit due to the safety issues regarding Ocaliva, management’s efforts to increase awareness about the updated level and promote Ocaliva, thereafter, is reaping results. While we are pleased with the approval of Ocaliva, the company’s dependence on a single product for growth has its risks. Any negative news related to Ocaliva would adversely impact Intercept and its growth prospects. The lack of other candidates in the pipeline is concerning. Nevertheless, the company is looking to expand the drug’s label in the promising NASH and PSC space. The phase III NASH program includes the REGENERATE trial among patients with advanced liver fibrosis and the REVERSE trial among patients with compensated cirrhosis. Shares have outperformed the industry in the last six months." (2/15/2019)
