What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lexicon Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lexicon Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. 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. " (11/7/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Lexicon presented additional data from sotagliflozin Phase 3 program in at ADA mtg and published full 52wk data from both inTANDEM1 and inTANDEM2 trials. We spoke w/ mgmt for an update. Overall sotagliflozin safety/ efficacy profile is unch and we continue to believe the drug will have a role in T1D treatment. Additional data from dapagliflozin program in T1D were also presented (AstraZeneca/ BMS). Sotagliflozin may have modest benefits as a dual SGLT1/2 inhibitor over single SGLT2 inhibition, but it is still a challenge to compare the drugs across different trials. Maintain HOLD due to slow Xermelo launch and our expectation that Phase 3 T2D next year will help clarify potential overall advantages of sotagliflozin over SGLT2 inhibitors." (6/25/2018)
