What are Wall Street analysts saying about Allergan stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Allergan stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We note that Mylan has invalidated Restasis patents, and Allergan mgmt. noted that two other generic manufacturers (Teva and Akorn that have not settled) could also launch Restasis generics if their applications are FDA-approved. We know that Allergan separately entered into five other generic settlements, according to its 1Q:18 10-Q filing. No news from Mylan or the others would be good news to Allergan, in our view." (7/30/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "2018 could prove to be a tough year for Allergan 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. Nonetheless, 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 after underperforming the industry in the second half of 2017. Estimates have gone up ahead of the Q2 earnings release. The company has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (7/24/2018)
