What are Wall Street analysts saying about SAGE Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about SAGE Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We like the setup heading into a catalyst-rich 2H18/2019E We are updating our model after SAGE reported its 1Q18 and provided a corporate update today (5/3). With its first product, brexanolone IV for postpartum depression (PPD), filed with potential commercialization in 1H19, and a robust pipeline of neuro- focused assets led by SAGE-217, our BUY thesis on the stock remains unchanged. In short, we like SAGE’s pipeline that targets several large central nervous system (CNS) indications where the unmet need is high (e.g., major depressive disorder, PPD, Parkinson’s, etc.) and the scarcity value that comes with robust/ripening CNS platforms. With the stock having pulled back ~25% since its 52-week high on 1/31/18, we like the setup heading into a catalyst-rich 2H18/2019E. Our DCF-based price target remains unchanged at $210." (5/3/2018)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We note that neither Mylan nor Biocon would comment on Neulasta’s updated timing. We spoke with a manufacturing consultant who believed that biosimilar Neulasta would not receive an approval until the Form 483 issues were resolved. We expect an update on Mylan’s earnings call on Wednesday, 5/9/18. Biocon Form 483: Biocon announced yesterday (5/1/18) that the FDA issued a Form 483 with 7 observations relating to the company’s Bangalore, India site. As a reminder, MYL has a partnership with Biocon to produce biosimilars Neulasta/Herceptin out of the same facility. The TAD for biosimilar Neulasta is on 6/4/18. Biocon noted that the observations were largely procedural and aimed at continuous improvement. Further, the company indicated that it would respond to the FDA well within" the typical 15 day response period." (5/3/2018)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "FY 2017 results were generally in line with expectations. We note that ‘217 Phase 2 PPD data are now expected in 4Q18 (was 2Q). The additional delay (previously moved from 1Q18 to 2Q18) is reportedly due to an increase in target enrollment (now ~140 PPD patients). We still anticipate a positive outcome and think running a full-scale trial makes sense given prior supportive data. With the robust size and design of the study, we believe it could serve as a registration trial and help streamline ‘217 time to market. Sage still plans to conduct several additional well powered trials (insomnia, bipolar depression, PD tremor) with oral ‘217 this year. Further evaluation of ‘217 for MDD, including potential initiation of pivotal Phase 3 development is also anticipated in 2018 (unch). BUY." (2/23/2018)
