What are Wall Street analysts saying about Allergan stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Allergan stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Allergan boasts dominant growth franchises across several therapeutic areas. Key products like Botox and Linzess and new products such as Viberzi, Namzaric and Vraylar will continue to support sales. Allergan also boasts a strong branded pipeline with meaningful data readouts expected in 2018. Biosimilars also represent significant opportunity.  In late 2017, Allergan announced cost-cutting efforts to protect it from potential revenue declines. Allergan’s share price has picked up in 2018 after underperforming the industry in the second half of 2017. However, 2018 could prove to be a tough year with the company facing loss of exclusivity for many products including Namenda XR and Restasis. Also, new competition for key growth drivers, Restasis and Linzess, is a concern. Estimates have gone up slightly of the Q2 earnings release. The company has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (7/20/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We raise PT to $176 from $150 on stronger Botox expectations in both migraine and cosmetic indications, and view recent investor activism as positive to AGN." (6/8/2018)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "This morning AGN reported a high quality 1Q18 EPS beat and raised its 2018 EPS guidance. This is clearly good news for the company, but we would note that a beat and raise was widely anticipated by the Street since AGN’s setup looked conservative heading into the year. Furthermore, if Restasis generics do not enter the market in 2018, we could see AGN continuing to beat its financial guidance throughout the year." (4/27/2018)
