What are Wall Street analysts saying about Momenta Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Momenta Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Momenta initiated a strategic review of its ongoing operations with the goal of reducing expenditure on its biosimilar portfolio, which should free up additional capital to fully fund its novel autoimmune portfolio.The company will now advance only two late-stage biosimilar assets, M923, its wholly-owned proposed biosimilar to Humira and M710, its proposed biosimilar to Eylea being developed in collaboration with Mylan. Momenta expects to file a biologics license application (BLA) for M923 with the FDA and plans to work to identify a commercialization partner for this product candidate. Momenta will restructure its executive team and reduce its workforce by approximately 50%. The cost savings from the restructuring plan should enable the company to redirect a meaningful portion of its resources toward novel drug candidates for the treatment of rare, immune-mediated diseases.Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the year so far." (11/14/2018)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We believe MNTA’s R&D day on 10/11 will be an important event as the company repositions itself as more of a traditional biotech refocusing its resources on its proprietary pipeline. We think management’s recent steps on restructuring is a testament to that and while the outcome of the strategic review did not get many investors excited, we think it was necessary ahead of R&D day. As we indicated in our resumption of coverage, we believe we are making an early call on MNTA given our bullishness on the promise of the FcRn class and think additional data at R&D day for its candidate, M281, could provide some incremental differentiation relative to other programs furthering our thesis it could be best-in-class and could offer modest near-term upside for the stock."
