What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pacira Biosciences stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pacira Biosciences stock: 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are upgrading shares of PCRX to Hold as we believe the near-term competitive threat from HRTX’s HTX-011 will be less of a factor over the next 12 months and the recent strength in the stock indicates to us that the stock is fairly valued at these levels. While PCRX’s Exparel revenues came in a little shy of 1Q19 consensus, we believe the recent price increase on Exparel, the lack of a competitive entry from HRTX and the favorable reimbursement scheme in the ASC setting should allow PCRX to achieve its 2019 Exparel guidance, in our view. Our revised 2019 Exparel estimates are now at the midpoint of management’s guidance of ~$400-$410 million (vs. consensus of ~$403 million). Additionally, we incorporate PCRX’s recent acquisition, Iovera, into our model and raise our target price to $45 a share." (5/2/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pacira's top line mainly comprises contribution from its marketed product Exparel. The company’s efforts to expand Exparel's label are encouraging. In April 2018, the FDA approved Exparel's label expansion to include administration via nerve block for prolonged regional analgesia. This is a positive for the company as it will further boost sales of Exparel. Pacira remains optimistic about its partnership with J&J to market and promote the use of Exparel with respective sales and medical education teams. Pacira’s agreement with China-based Nuance for the development and commercialization of Exparel in China is also an upside. Shares of Pacira have outperformed the industry in 2018. However, the company remains heavily dependent on Exparel for growth, which is concerning." (1/3/2019) 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We valued Pacira based on an equally weighted blend of discounted cash flow analysis and sum-of-the-parts valuation. This analysis generates our $43 price target, supporting our Neutral rating." (11/1/2018) 4. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks. Our $48 12-month target is based on an average of our $55/share DCF (10% WACC discount rate; 1% terminal growth beyond 2024) and a $41/share P/E multiple derived valuation (30x fully-taxed 2020 EPS, or 1x PEG, discounted back)."
