What are Wall Street analysts saying about United Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our price target of $95/share is based on an equally weighted composite of (a) $98/share, as a 35x multiple of taxed and diluted FY22 GAAP EPS of $5.78 discounted back to and (b) an NPV of $92/share, discount rate 12.5%, growth rate -2%." (11/1/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "United Therapeutics holds a strong position in the PAH market with four approved products targeting this indication. The company has many phase III programs in the fields of cardiopulmonary diseases and oncology. It is working on new delivery mechanisms for Remodulin and expanded indications for its other marketed products like Orenitram and Tyvaso, which might drive long-term growth. The acquisition of SteadyMed added its drug device pipeline product Trevyent to its portfolio, which could have posed competition to Implantable System for Remodulin (ISR) which was approved recently in July with a launch scheduled for 2019. However, competition in the PAH market is increasing. Also two of its biggest products - Remodulin and Adcirca – are expected to face generic competition this year. United Therapeutics’ shares have also underperformed the industry so far this year." (10/22/2018)
