What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pacira Pharmaceuticals stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pacira Pharmaceuticals stock:
- 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We note that consensus estimates are already toward the top end of the range and investors may have been hoping for a slight guidance raise after mgmt.’s optimistic remarks about rapid uptake of the nerve block utilization amongst anesthesiologists. Pacira remains a challenging stock because of the uncertainty around the takeout thesis in the name, and the overhang from Heron’s pending data releases and launch. We reiterate our Neutral rating." (5/3/2018)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pacira fourth-quarter 2017 earnings surpassed estimates while revenues were at par with them. Pacira’s top line mainly comprises contribution from its marketed product Exparel which generated sales of $282.9 million in 2017, up 6.4%. The company’s efforts to expand Exparel's label are encouraging. Pacira remains optimistic of its partnership with J&J to market and promote the use of Exparel, with their sales and medical education teams. However, the company is heavily dependent on Exparel for growth. In February 2018, the FDA’s Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee reviewed the company’s sNDA, and voted six to four against approval of the expanded indication. We believe that this is a concern for the company. However, the company however remains confident and will keep an open dialogue with the FDA to define the best next steps for expanding the Exparel indication." (3/6/2018)
- 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We’re looking for more than two months of data showing solid growth before we become positive on the potential for a meaningful inflection in Exparel use trends, especially with a noisy October that may have benefited from hurricane-related deferred procedures that negatively impacted September volumes. We remain HOLD rated on PCRX shares." (12/29/2017)
- 4. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "Nerve block data for Exparel is anticipated within the next month, and our consultants." (7/14/2017)
