What are Wall Street analysts saying about AbbVie stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AbbVie stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AbbVie’s key drug, Humira has been performing well based on strong demand trends, despite new competition. Moreover, Imbruvica has multibillion dollar potential and AbbVie is exploring the possibility of label expansion into solid tumors and autoimmune diseases. Mavyret’s launch has also been stronger than expected. Mavyret has become a major growth driver for AbbVie in a short time on the market. Moreover, AbbVie has an impressive late-stage pipeline with launch of several products with multibillion-dollar potential expected in the near term. AbbVie expects to launch more than 20 new products or line extensions of marketed drugs before Humira biosimilar competition begins in the United States in 2023. However, potential biosimilar competition to Humira in Europe this year is an overhang." (10/1/2018)

BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "On its fiscal 3Q18 earnings call, MDT said it does not expect the first-in- human use of its surgical robot in the next couple of months as the company had intended. Recall, MDT had previously said that it expected to be in clinical use by end of its fiscal 2018." (2/15/2018)
