What are Wall Street analysts saying about Seattle Genetics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Seattle Genetics stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We believe the FDA warning against CPI usage in the first-line setting last month, and the long DOR by CPI treatment in the second-line setting presented at ASCO this weekend, may result in a delay in EV-201 trial enrollment and primary study completion initially planned in 2020. Last month, the FDA issued a warning against single-agent checkpoint inhibition for frontline PDL1-low patients, based on a recent data monitoring committee (DMC) assessment for the phase 3 KEYNOTE-361 study (pembrolizumab, Merck, MRK; not rated) and the phase 3 IMvigor130 study (atezolizumab, Genentech, DNA; not rated) results." (6/5/2018)
  • 2. Cann analysts commented, "We have not included any sales or earnings from enfortumab vedotin by 2022 due to its stage of development, but we are encouraged by its development program, including data in the ASCO abstract and its having received Breakthrough Therapy Designation. 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, CTCL and Anaplastic large cell lymphoma, and label expansion into frontline Hodgkin’s lymphoma, will increase to $766.7 million in 2022 and account for 70% of revenue. Continued strong data from ECHELON-1 are expected to drive adoption in the frontline Hodgkin’s setting." (5/17/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Seattle Genetics' dependence on one product – 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 of them are in early stages of development. However, efforts to expand Adcetris’s label is encouraging. The label expansion in pcALCL, CD30-expressing MF and T-cell lymphoma will boost sales. The company’s collaboration with Takeda for the global development and commercialization of Adcetris is encouraging. Meanwhile, the company’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. Estimates movement remains mixed ahead of Q1 results. Seattle Genetics has a mixed record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (4/23/2018)
  • 4. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "Forecasts; We Expect Shares to Be Pressured Monday morning, ViewRay announced preliminary 2017 revenue of $34M and 4Q17 orders of $34M. Both metrics were significantly below our expectations. With so much investor focus on system sales and conversion to revenue, we expect VRAY to trade off today.   The company recognized revenue on 4 MRIdian Linac Systems in the quarter. For the full year, VRAY announced total revenue of $34M. We had modeled $42.5M in revenue for the full year. Management noted that revenue recognition was delayed on one of the 5 systems shipped or installed in the quarter. That delay should result in $7M in revenue recognized in a later period. Investors have been eager to see backlog convert to revenue and this miss is likely to disappoint.   In the quarter, VRAY received $34M in new MRIdian Linac System orders, less than the $48M we had forecasted. That order number is lower the company’s orders in the second quarter and likely does not demonstrate enough of an uptick in momentum from the $29.9M order reported in 3Q." (1/9/2018)
