What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ultragenyx is encouraged by the growing demand for Crysvita from both children and adults with X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) inthe United States. During the third quarter, Mepsevii received European approval under exceptional circumstances for the treatment of non-neurological manifestations of MPS VII. In 2019, the company expects to file for potential approval of its third therapy, UX007 in fatty acid oxidation disorders. Ultragenyx continues to advance its two gene therapy clinical programs —DTX401 for glycogen storage disease type Ia and DTX301 for ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency—with additional data expected around the end of 2018 and in 2019 respectively. However, the company plans to discontinue the study, evaluating UX007 in patients with Glut1 DS, as it did not achieve its primary endpoint, which does not bode well for the company. Loss estimates have remained stable ahead of the Q4 earnings release." (1/17/2019)
  • 2. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "Ahead of the pending Phase 3 results for UX007 (trihep) in Glut1 DS expected sometime this quarter, we sifted through early data and market sizing assumptions to frame expectations and potential upside/downside on the event. Bottom line, while directly comparable data are limited to say the least (most similar pilot study only had an N of 6 and Phase 2 trials evaluated different endpoints), we believe a positive read- out is the most likely outcome given proof of concept data combined with seemingly reasonable powering assumptions. Between the recent pullback in shares (15% since 9/25) and our sense that this opportunity is not well understood by the market, we see risk/reward slightly skewed to the upside. Maintain OW."
