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. " (2/21/2019)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We hosted a series of mtgs with mgmt and investors last wk. Enrollment in setmelanotide Phase 3 trial in POMC patients is nearing completion. Mgmt did not disclose current enrollment figure, but did reiterate guidance for completion in 1H18. Phase 3 trial in LepR patients has been initiated. Mgmt still expects to complete enrollment of this latter trial by YE18, noting help from an overlap in sites w/ POMC trial and higher prevalence. A mtg w/ FDA to discuss Bardet-Biedl Phase 3 design is scheduled. Trial likely to be somewhat larger, but it is not yet clear whether a placebo arm will be needed. We expect initial data from Phase 2 testing in Alstrom, Epigenetic POMC, and possibly Heterozygous POMC patients in 1H18. Mgmt did not guide on timing for an update on Bardet-Biedl Phase 2 trial, but did convey a bias towards expectations for a more profound impact on weight loss w/ longer duration treatment. Reiterate BUY. We believe Phase 2 POMC and LepR data are compelling and have high conviction around positive Phase 3 outcomes in 2019. We believe stock has room for upside around positive Phase 2 trial updates in 1H19, which would expand peak sales potential." (2/26/2018)
