What are Wall Street analysts saying about Nektar Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nektar Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nektar reported encouraging fourth-quarter results, beating estimates for both earnings and sales. Nektar has a promising pipeline with several regulatory updates/data-readouts lined up for 2020. Moreover, regular partnerships have enhanced the company’s financial position. The blockbuster collaboration deal with Bristol-Myers for NKTR-214 significantly boosted Nektar’s cash resources. It also has encouraging co-development deals with other pharma companies. The deals boost revenues and reduce expenses by sharing research costs. On the flip side, Nektar relies heavily on partners for revenues. Partnership-related setbacks may thus weigh heavily on the company’s results in the future. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry in the past year." (4/15/2020)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our new 12-month, $24, vs. our prior $47 target on shares of Nektar is based on a 12-year DCF-driven, sum-of-the-parts analysis. Our DCF is driven by beta of 1.62, terminal growth rate of 0.5%, risk premium of 4.93%, calculated WACC of 10.0%, and tax rate of 15% beginning in FY 2027." (8/13/2019)
