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. " (8/15/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "Rhythm released Q3 financials this morning, following the presentation of promising." (11/14/2017)
