What are Wall Street analysts saying about Seattle Genetics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Seattle Genetics stock:
  • 1. Cann analysts commented, "We have anticipated impact for Adcetris in frontline peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) starting in late 2019. The positive top-line data for the ECHELON-2 study support this. The timing of the ECHELON-2 data is as expected. Adcetris, Seattle Genetics’ approved drug for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, had sales of $307.6 million, or 63.8% of total revenue, in 2017. We estimate that Adcetris sales, including additional indications, PTCL and Anaplastic large cell lymphoma, along with label expansion into frontline Hodgkin’s lymphoma earlier this year, will increase to $838.7 million in 2022 and account for 70.7% of revenue. Continued strong data from ECHELON-1 are expected to drive adoption in the frontline Hodgkin’s setting; the positive top-line data for ECHELON-2 support our view for approval and adoption in frontline PTCL." (10/1/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Seattle Genetics reported better-than expected results in Q2. Its sole marketed drug, Adcetris, is performing well since its launch. The label expansion in frontline Hodgkin lymphoma, pcALCL, CD30-expressing MF and T-cell lymphoma is encouarging. The FDA approval of Adcetris in combination with chemotherapy for the treatment of stage III or IV classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) will further boost sales. The company’s collaboration with Takeda for the global development and commercialization of Adcetris shows promise. However, its heavy dependence solely on Adcetris for growth has its inherent risks. The recent label expansion of Merck’s Keytruda in the lymphoma indication is likely to increase competition. Though the company has multiple candidates in its pipeline, most are in early stages of development. Meanwhile, the company’s shares have outperformed the industry so far this year." (8/23/2018)
  • 3. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "With SGEN’s recent strength (up ~50% over the last 3 mos), we’ve been asked frequently – what would we need to see from Adcetris to maintain this momentum? In our view, this question should be more than adequately answered following a big beat this quarter with Adcetris sales coming in at $122.4M vs guidance of $105-110M and consensus of $107M. Additionally, management provided 3Q guidance of $130-135M vs cons of $115M. Coupled with continued pipeline progress (completion of enrollment in the pivotal cohort of EV-201 and first patient dosed in innovaTV 204/207, as previously disclosed), as well as narrowing of guidance for E-2 (now early 4Q18) we see this as another productive quarter on many fronts." (7/27/2018)
  • 4. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks. We reach a price target of $98 after adjusting new corporate tax rate, cash, and other program updates. The price target is based on a sum-of-parts NPV-DCF ($54.9 HL + $6.3 ALCL+ $14.1 PTCL + $20.3 platform + $2.8 cash). Key risks to achievement of our target price include trial failures, safety issues, regulatory delays, competition, and dilutive financing. Seattle Genetics Inc. July 27, 2018 H.C. WAINWRIGHT & CO.
