What are Wall Street analysts saying about Opko Health stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Opko Health stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "OPKO Health has been growing on the back of contribution from RAYALDEE. Furthermore, OPKO Health’s utilization of the 4Kscore remains strong, with 8,700 tests registered in the third quarter. OPKO has also completed a Premarket Approval (PMA) submission for Claros point-of-care PSA test to the FDA. Additionally, tests like testosterone and Vitamin D utilizing the Claros platform are advancing toward a 510(k) submission to the FDA. Several metabolic and endocrinology programs that are underway, are likely to provide OPKO Health a competitive advantage. Meanwhile, the margins look pressed at the moment. Also, the company’s core segmental revenues remain weak in the quarter. Moreover, the decline in R&D expenses indicates reduced focus on innovation. OPKO Health underperformed its industry in a year's time. " (2/4/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are maintaining our OUTPERFORM investment rating on OPK shares and our price target remains $7. We arrive at our price target via a DCF methodology for its current commercial business plus the hGH-CTP program. We assign an additional $1 of value for the rest of OPKO’s product pipeline." (11/12/2018)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our OW rating and 12-month price target of $20 for OPK shares post a 2Q18 EPS beat. We continue to think that the long-term sales and earnings potential of OPK’s business is underappreciated and that upward earnings revisions in 2019+ to levels not reflected in consensus expectations should drive the stock higher. We expect upward earnings revisions to come from the uptake of Rayaldee, commercialization of OPK’s branded drug pipeline, and BioReference sales growth and margin expansion." (8/7/2018)
