What are 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 is performing well and should continue to be driven by growing awareness, favorable clinical data, new indications and expansion into new markets. Moreover, Imbruvica has multi-billion dollar potential and AbbVie is exploring the possibility of label expansion into solid tumors and autoimmune diseases. Investor focus will be on the stock with several late-stage data-readouts are expected in 2017. AbbVie’s shares outperformed the large-cap pharma industry so far this year. However, Viekira faces intense pricing and competitive pressure in the HCV market. Though Humira is doing well, the company is concerned about the product’s long-term prospects owing to the potential biosimilar competition. Estimates remained stable ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. AbbVie has had a mixed record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters. " (7/13/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "ABBV's IPR with CHRS will be heard this week, which looks challenging in light of the prior institution decision. However, the market already expects ABBV to lose and we do not see the '135 patent alone as critical to delaying biosimilars, indicating positive asymmetry in our view. We look at the key IPR arguments as well as the risk/ reward around the decision expected in May as we prepare to attend the hearing." (2/14/2017)

Consensus Ratings for AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) (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.
