What are Wall Street analysts saying about Prothena stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Prothena stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Prothena's license agreement with Roche for prasinezumab is big positive as it not only boosts Prothena’s pipeline development but also provides it with funds in the form of research reimbursement and milestone payments. The company also entered into an agreement with Celgene to develop its pipeline which should boost investor sentiment given the latter’s expertise. However, Prothena suffered a major setback with the discontinuation of development of lead candidate NEOD001. Moreover, due to disappointing data from a phase Ib study, the company will not advance PRX003 into mid-stage development. Consequently, the company has decided to reduce its workforce by 57%. The lack of promising candidates is a concern. Shares have performed worse than the industry in the last six months. Estimates looks stable ahead of the Q4 earnings release. Prothena has a mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (2/13/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate our Overweight rating and 12-month PT of $18. With discontinuation of NEOD001 development announced in April (our report here), investors are likely to focus on PRX002/RG7935 development as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease (PD). The company has guided to expectation for data from the Phase 2 PASADENA trial in 2020. Release of pharmacodynamic data from lower-dose cohorts of ATTR amyloidosis treatment PRX004 are anticipated in 2019." (8/8/2018)
