What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pacira Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pacira Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. 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. 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)."
