What are analysts saying about The Medicines Company stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The Medicines Company stock:
- 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, " ACC (Mar 17-19) will be a key meeting for inclisiran, where MDCO will detail full 6-mo data for ORION-1 and AMGN will present the FOURIER data. Data from the latter should help guide PIII development for inclisiran, for which MDCO continues to seek a partner. On positive FOURIER results, we lower our risk-discount on inclisiran and our PT increases to $62 (v. $49 prev)." (3/1/2017)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "The Medicines Co. has two potential blockbusters, Inclisiran and Carbavance, in different stages of development. Moreover, divestment of non-core assets to drive shareholder value is encouraging. We are also encouraged by the company’s acquisitions and in-licensing agreements to grow its pipeline. Moreover, the company’s shares have outperformed the Zacks classified Medical-Biomedical/Genetics industry in last one year. However the company is facing generic competition for its flagship product, Angiomax. With Angiomax sales eroding due to the presence of generics, the company’s ability to successfully develop and bring new products to market is important for future growth and any regulatory setbacks would weigh heavily on the stock. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (1/10/2017)

Consensus Ratings for The Medicines Company (NASDAQ:MDCO) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
