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 launched its second drug, Crysvita, in the United States to treat X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) in April. We are optimistic about the launch of Crysvita. In the EU, the drug was approved on a conditional basis, in February. The positive phase III data from the drug in pediatric setting, announced in May, should support the drug’s full approval in Europe. Meanwhile, a potential early FDA approval for UX007 for long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorders (LC-FAOD) could be a significant catalyst for the stock. The company also remains focused on its two-gene therapy programs, DTX301 for ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency and DTX401 for glycogen storage disease type Ia/GSDIa. However, since Ultragenyx is a newly commercial company with small revenues, development or regulatory setbacks could result in higher operating expenses and the need for additional capital. Loss estimates have narrowed ahead of the Q2 earnings. " (7/24/2018)
  • 2. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "RARE’s 3Q report this afternoon was relatively uneventful aside from a few small updates: 1) RARE now has biopsy data from 6 adult patients that are included in the FDA review of burosumab (KRN23); 2) 48 week Phase 3 data for burosumab in adults will be available by YE17; and 3) the DMTX acquisition could close as early as Nov 7 th . Additionally, the company plans on hosting an analyst day in NY on December 4 th during which they plan on sharing some additional details regarding their earlier stage pipeline." (11/5/2017)
