What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sucampo Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sucampo Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sucampo’s pending acquisition by Mallinckrodt for $1.2 billion have raised investor concerns that the latter may be underpaying for the company. A sNDA for label expansion of Amitizia in pediatric functional constipation is under review. Also, Sucampo’s collaborations with firms like Takeda and Mylan for Amitiza’s commercialization is a big positive. Moreover, the Vtesse acquisition added a pivotal program in Niemann-Pick Disease type C1 to its pipeline. However, Sucampo’s dependence on Amitiza for growth is concerning with few companies trying to market and sell generic version of Amitiza. Moreover, Sucampo discontinued Amitzia’s sprinkle formulation development as it did not meet bioequivalence with capsule formulation. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry. Estimates have remained stable ahead of the Q4 earnings results. The company has a mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (2/9/2018)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Sucampo’s stock has risen sharply in the past few weeks (from ~$10 to $16+) on no new fundamental news. However, a Bloomberg story has been circulating that the company may be entertaining suitors. We have no specific knowledge to confirm this, but do see an undervalued company that is generating free cash flow and has a strong (orphan) pipeline. Our last note (from 11/21) reviewed the R&D Day which focused on two key pipeline products, VTS-270 (Neeman Pick Disease) and CPP-1X/sulindac (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis )." (12/7/2017)
