What are Wall Street analysts saying about United Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "United Therapeutics beat on both earnings and sales in Q2. It holds a strong position in the PAH market. Demand for its treprostinil medicines — Remodulin, Tyvaso and Orenitram — remains strong despite generic concerns and competitive pressure. 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. Moreover, the company bought several new product candidates in 2018 to strengthen its pipeline. However, competition in the PAH market is increasing. Also, two of its biggest products — Remodulin and Adcirca —lost exclusivity in 2018. Generic versions of both the drugs have been launched, which could significantly erode the drugs’ sales in 2019. The stock has also underperformed the industry this year so far" (8/14/2019)
  • 2. 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)
