What are Wall Street analysts saying about Jazz Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Jazz Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Jazz beat expectations for both earnings and sales in Q1. Following improved volume trends of its sleep disorder drug Xyrem in Q1, Jazz raised its future 2018 sales expectations from the drug. Management seems confident that Xyrem will continue to generate volume growth in 2018 and beyond. Jazz’s lead pipeline candidate, JZP-110, is under review in the United States for narcolepsy and OSA and complements its existing sleep disorder portfolio. Meanwhile, its newest drug Vyxeos enjoys improving demand trends following launch in the United States in August 2017. 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 Erwinaze, due to constrained manufacturing capacity. These supply challenges are expected to continue in 2018." (5/31/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. 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)
