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 Pharmaceuticals’ sleep disorder drug, Xyrem, has witnessed improved volume trends so far in 2018, sales were  disappointing in 2017. Notably, Xyrem generates majority of sales, and consequently any setback is likely to hamper Jazz’s top-line. Moreover, 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. Meanwhile, its newest drug Vyxeos performed below expectations leading Jazz to lower its full-year outlook. However, management seems confident that Xyrem will continue to generate volume growth in future quarters. The company’s lead pipeline candidate solriamfetol complements its existing sleep disorder portfolio. Estimates movement remianed mixed ahead of Q4 earnings. Jazz has a positive record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (2/14/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are reiterating our Overweight rating on JAZZ stock and reducing our 12 month price target to $185, from $201. Our price target reduction of is driven by 1) Removal of Erwinaze post 2020; 2) Revision of Erwinaze sales in 2019 and 2020 to account for continued supply disruption, and a decreased focus on of revenue and spending assumptions ex- Erwinaze, largely within JAZZ’s hemo/oncology segment. Today’s announcement drives ~3% of our price target revision. We continue to believe JAZZ trades at a discount to its intrinsic value driven by overhangs on Xyrem generic entry, Vyxeos uptake, and Erwinaze uncertainty." (2/12/2019)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. 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)
