What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ophthotech stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ophthotech stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We understand previous attempts at this indication, e.g. via RhoNova (acquired by 2016), required 2 vectors (one to block the mutant protein and one to produce normal protein), which requires higher vector doses and was technically difficult. Work in mice has demonstrated a single vector construct can improve both retinal structure and function; and, the company indicated studies in large animal (i.e. canine) models have yielded promising results, which management expects will be published soon. A sponsored research agreement was also established between for continued preclinical and natural history studies. Ophthotech plans to initiate IND-enabling studies with the goal of beginning a phase I/II trial in early 2020." (6/13/2018)
