What are analysts saying about Shire PLC stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Shire PLC stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "The approval of Mydayis is likely to boost Shire’s ADHD segment dominance while strong performance of Vyvanse, Cinryze and Elaprase will continue to drive Shire’s top line. The label expansion of Cinryze in paediatrics and conditional approval of Natpara in Europe should continue to drive the top line going ahead. The hematology and immunology segment, acquired from Baxalta, gave a major boost to product sales. The approval of Xiidra has boosted the company’s ophthalmology space, acquiring roughly 22% of the total market by the end of Mar 2017. The Dyax acquisition has integrated well and Shire announced positive results from the phase III trial on lanadelumab in May 2017. However, the adult ADHD space is one of the largest and fastest growing segments of the market but is highly genericized. Earnings estimates have fallen lately ahead of the Q2 results. Shire has a positive record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (7/17/2017)
- 2. 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)

Consensus Ratings for Shire PLC (NASDAQ:SHPG) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
