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 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)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate our Overweight rating and $170 12-month price target. We think Elafibranor Ph2 PBC data from Genfit (GNFT.PA, Not covered) looks competitive among Ph2 assets but we do not view today’s update as a near or mid-term threat to ICPT’s OCA. Elafibranor Ph2 looks broadly similar to recently updated Sedalapar data (for 52-week analysis) from Cymabay (CBAY, OW E. Merle) which is not surprising as both are PPAR agonists, but detailed full data could be helpful in comparing the efficacy and safety profiles of these assets. We think pivotal PBC trial enrollment will take time before either asset would pose a commercial threat to OCA in PBC. We remain focused on REGENERATE readout in NASH for ICPT in 1H 2019."
