What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lexicon Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lexicon Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Lexicon and collaborator Sanofi announced Friday that the FDA issued a Complete Response Letter (CRL) for Diabetes (T1D). Mgmt did not provide details around FDA concerns. As a reminder, an FDA Advisory Committee voted 8-8 on Zynquista approval at a Jan 2018 mtg. Diabetic Ketoacidosis was the focus of the mtg and nearly all members, regardless of vote, believed that the drug would only be appropriate for a small subset of particularly attentive T1D patients. We expect the drug to ultimately be approved for but not in the near future. We expect an update from the matter by mid-2019. A positive CHMP opinion for Zynquista in T1D was recently issued by European regulators and we expect formal approval in 2Q19. Maintain HOLD, but we believe the stock becomes more attractive w/ confirmation of differentiated Zynquista profile in T2D." (3/25/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lexicon Genetics Incorporated is a leader in defining the functions of genes for drug discovery using large-scale knockout mouse technology. Lexicon has invented high-throughput gene trapping technology to discover thousands of genes and expand its OmniBank library of tens of thousands of mouse clones. The Company uses an integrated platform of functional genomic technologies to accelerate large-scale analysis of mammalian gene function for drug discovery. " (1/25/2019)
