What are analysts saying about Shire PLC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Shire PLC stock:

  • 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "SHPG posted strong 4Q16 revs ($3.8B vs $3.7B JEF) and EPS ($3.37 vs $3.26 JEF) as nearly all core franchises performed well. In particular, GI and Orphan Diseases showed strength. As for legacy BXLT, Immunoglobulins and Hemophilia performed well while Inhibitors lagged. We like the setup for 2017. If mgt executes on core brands, the Xiidra launch, and the BXLT integration, we could envision share price outperformance, augmented by significant deleveraging." (2/17/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shire is a leader in the ADHD market with drugs like Vyvanse and Intuniv. The adult ADHD space is one of the largest and fastest growing segments and a potential approval of SHP465 will further strengthen Shire’s franchise. It has expanded its presence in the gastrointestinal, neuroscience and rare disease markets through strategic acquisitions. The NPS Pharma acquisition has strengthened the company's GI franchise. Moreover, Shire’s agreement to license global rights to Pfizer’s PF-00547659 will strengthen the company’s GI pipeline further. The company updated its annual guidance with expectations of $700 million of operating cost synergies from the Baxalta acquisition (completed in Jun 2016), up from the earlier projection of $500 million. Estimates have been moving up ahead of the company’s Q3 earnings results. However, headwinds remain in the form of generic competition and unfavorable currency movements." (10/21/2016)
