What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ophthotech stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ophthotech stock:
  • 1. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We remain positive on the company’s relatively low-cost entry into gene therapy (GT) but reiterate our Neutral rating until we gain additional visibility on these assets. Recall both the Leber congenital amaurosis 10 (LCA10) gene therapy to deliver miniCEP290″ and ABCA4 GT in Stargardt disease licensed from 2018, as well as the autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP) asset licensed from the 2018, are preclinical. As such, catalysts are limited and, aside from a possible publication in the near term, are likely to generate meaningful catalysts on a 2020 horizon at best." (8/2/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ophthotech is focused on development of Zimura, after the failure of Fovista program. The company has reassessed its wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) program and is developing Zimura in combination with anti-VEGF therapy. The company also collaborated with other companies to develop Zimura in combination studies. With no approved products, the company’s revenues are dependent on collaborations, which may be affected by pipeline setbacks. In a major setback, Novartis terminated its agreement following the failure of Fovista in three phase III program on Fovista. The company lost a major source of revenues. Shares have underperformed the industry so far this year." (7/10/2018)
