What are Wall Street analysts saying about Rhythm Pharmaceuticals stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Rhythm Pharmaceuticals stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Rhythm Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company. It focused on the development and commercialization of peptide therapeutics for the treatment of rare genetic deficiencies which result in life-threatening metabolic disorders. The Company's product candidate principally consists of setmelanotide, a potent, first-in-class melanocortin-4 receptor or MC4R, agonist for the treatment of rare genetic disorders of obesity. Rhythm Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is based in Boston, MA. " (5/17/2019) 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Rhythm reported 1Q19 financial results today and we spoke w/ mgmt for an update. Top-line results from setmelanotide Phase 3 trials in POMC and LEPR are expected 3Q19. We continue to expect positive outcomes based on impressive Phase 2 data. Rhythm is still opening sites in the setmelanotide Phase 3 trial in pts w/ but mgmt reiterated guidance for completing enrollment in 2H19 and results in 2H20. The company is assessing 6-12 other rare genetic obesity disorders for potential inclusion in the ongoing Phase 2 basket trial. An update is expected later this yr. Mgmt also plans to share more data from GO-ID obesity DNA sequencing study and TEMPO rare genetic obesity registry later this yr. BUY." (5/5/2019) 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We update our model accordingly. Overall, our thesis remains unchanged and while we continue to model a high POS for setmelanotide as a treatment for rare genetic obesity disorders, we feel this is largely factored into the stock, and ultimately the lack of near-term catalysts and questions around the size of the commercial opportunity for POMC and LepR deficiency obesities keeps us on the sidelines for now. The company continues to make good progress in its setmelanotide Phase 3 programs and we think any incremental updates on the status of its TEMPO registry efforts to identify patients with genetic obesities, particularly ones which could be treated with setmelanotide, could prove to be positive catalysts if it looks like the prevalence of these disorders are greater than clinical epidemiology/literature has shown. We maintain our Hold rating and $36 target price." (11/11/2018) Has Rhythm Pharmaceuticals been receiving favorable news coverage?
