What are Wall Street analysts saying about Jazz Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Jazz Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We highlighted after 1Q that management seemed to be taking a decidedly conservative approach to guidance this year, and this quarter we again see a healthy beat with little or no full-year raise. We still think guidance is a bit conservative (we’re near the high end on REV and EPS), but besides a small revenue drag from the sale of Prialt, unfortunately there was a key underperformer holding Jazz guidance back: Vyxeos. Jazz’s newest growth driver, from its most recent acquisition, only grew modestly QoQ, missed consensus for the second straight quarter, and Jazz lowered the product’s 2018 guidance 12% at the midpoint to $115-135M." (8/9/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "After lower-than-expected sales in 2017, Jazz’ sleep disorder drug, Xyrem witnessed improved volume trends in Q1. Management seems confident that Xyrem will continue to generate volume growth in 2018 and beyond. Jazz’s lead pipeline candidate JZP-110 complements its existing sleep disorder portfolio. Meanwhile, its newest drug Vyxeos is enjoying improving demand trends. Jazz is also actively evaluating business development deals to enhance its product line and pipeline. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry so far this year.  However, Jazz has been facing supply constraints for leukemia drug, Erwinaze, due to constrained manufacturing capacity. These supply challenges are expected to continue in 2018. Estimate movement has been mixed ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. Jazz has a mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (7/16/2018)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We reiterate our Neutral rating and $150 PT post-1Q:18 beat & improved guidance. We think investors may now be concerned about deal risk in the name." (5/9/2018)
  • 4. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "JAZZ’s purchase of PRV makes strategic sense to us. This morning, the acquisition of a Priority Review Voucher (PRV) by JAZZ was disclosed. The company is paying $110 million in cash for a PRV owned by Spark Therapeutics (ONCE, Overweight rated covered by Elemer Piros). Particularly when applied to a speed-to-market situation, we believe the PRV could be useful for JAZZ." (4/30/2018)
