Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Spark Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We further think it is pre-mature to draw the conclusion that SPK-8011 is inferior to the competing product from BioMarin (BMRN, non-rated). We reduce our PT from $91 to $77 after removing the M&A premium of our valuation per revised valuation methodology and we maintain our revenue forecasts." (8/8/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate our Overweight rating and 12-month PT of $103 on 2Q18 financial results and program updates. During the call, Spark announced additional updates from the Phase 1/2 trial of SPK-8011 in hemophilia A. While the occurrence of two immune responses leading to inadequate FVIII activity level add challenges for the program, we believe the company is well equipped to address them as the program moves to late-stage development." (8/7/2018)
  • 3. Raymond James analysts commented, "We are maintaining our Outperform rating for Spark. Hemophilia (WFH) 2018 World Congress, the company, along with its partner, Pfizer, provided an update on the ongoing Phase I/II study evaluating SPK-9001 for hemophilia B (Hem B).
