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’s products like Botox and Linzess and new products such as Viberzi, Namzaric and Vraylar support sales. It also boasts a strong branded pipeline. Biosimilars also represent significant opportunity. However, while we remain optimistic about the company’s growth prospects, Allergan faces loss of exclusivity for many key products. While generic versions of Alzheimer’s treatment, Namenda XR and Estrace cream have been launched, that of blockbuster dry-eye drug, Restasis, is expected to be launched soon. Sales of these products are expected to decline significantly with the introduction of generics. Also, new competition for key growth drivers, Botox, Restasis and Linzess, is a concern. Particularly, the entry of CGRP antibodies in 2018 may have a negative impact on sales of Botox Therapeutics, mainly for the chronic migraine indication. Allergan’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past three months." (1/3/2019) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We rate AGN Neutral and have a 12-month price target of $180. We think that Allergan is one the highest-quality and most-innovative companies in the Pharma industry. That said, we don’t see a lot of upside to consensus expectations in the near term, which is why we are on the sidelines for now. Valuation Summary We use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to get to our 12-month price target of $180." (9/14/2018) 3. 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."
