(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) Has United Therapeutics been receiving favorable news coverage?
