What are Wall Street analysts saying about Puma Biotechnology stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Puma Biotechnology stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Puma Biotech incurred narrower-than-expected loss in Q3. Its only marketed drug, Nerlynx, approved for early stage HER2-positive breast cancer, have improved sales steadily since launch in July 2017. The drug was also approved in the EU during September, which can generate additional sales in the future quarters. However, sale of the drug in the third quarter of 2018 fell below expectations due to higher patient discontinuation. Meanwhile, several additional studies on Nerlynx targeting different types of breast cancer patient populations and in earlier-line settings are currently underway. The drug’s label expansion will allow it to treat and access an expanded patient population. Shares have underperformed the industry so far this year. Due to the lack of a strong pipeline, the company is totally dependent on Nerlynx for growth. Hence, any kind of regulatory setback for Nerlynx could affect the company’s growth prospects." (11/14/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are lowering our 12-month price target to $50 from $75, but are maintaining our Overweight rating on shares of PBYI. Puma reported Nerlynx sales of $53M, which was under FactSet consensus of $58M. We are not necessarily lowering the price target due to the miss, but rather the explanations behind what are driving Nerlynx trends. We have slowed the ramp, increased discontinuations, and our 2025 Nerlynx revenues are $760M vs. $1.02B. We find the communication patterns related to the Nerlynx launch as highly challenging and tough to interpret. We increased the discount rate from 10% to 11% to proxy our view that we have lower visibility into these launch trends." (11/2/2018)
