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, "Our $147 12-month target (from $153) is based on a DCF, which reflects a strong 15% 2019-22 cash- flow CAGR, a 10% WACC discount rate, and negative 3.5% terminal growth after 2022 given conservatively assumed modest Xyrem franchise headwinds partially offset by other products’ continued growth." (8/8/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Jazz’s key drug, Xyrem, witnessed improved volume trends in 2018 on the back of awareness efforts. The label expansion of Xyrem in pediatric patients is likely to boost Jazz’s top line. Management seems confident that Xyrem will continue to generate volume growth in 2019. Meanwhile, Jazz’s lead pipeline candidate, solriamfetol complements the sleep disorder portfolio and successful development will offset decline in Xyrem’s sales following patent expiry in 2023. Jazz’s leukemia drug, Vyxeos, also witnessed strong growth in late 2018. Launch in Europe will also boost sales in 2019. However, Jazz has been facing supply crunch for its leukemia drug, Erwinaze, owing to constrained manufacturing capacity. These supply challenges are expected to continue in 2019. Los estimates have been stable ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release. The company has a positive record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (5/6/2019)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We raise our PT to $147 from $137 based on two recent positive catalysts: approval of Sunosi (solriamfetol for excessive sleepiness), and last night’s positive data in the Phase III trial of JZP-258 (low sodium Xyrem). Both these events were largely expected and we reiterate our Neutral rating on JAZZ." (3/27/2019)
  • 4. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We have an Overweight rating and a 12-month price target of $185 on JAZZ shares. We believe that the sleep franchise durability remains underappreciated and that the company has an interesting hemo/oncology business that could drive the next leg of growth and evolution for JAZZ. We believe that data readouts in 2019 and upward earnings revisions in both segments of the business will drive upside to JAZZ’s current share price. Valuation Summary We use a blend of DCF and EV/EBITDA to arrive at our $185 price target." (3/26/2019)
