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 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)
- 2. 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)
- 3. 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, it is facing potential loss of exclusivity for many products in 2018 including Namenda XR and Restasis. In October 2017, a Texas federal district court invalidated four of the six patents covering Restasis, potentially opening doors for early generic competition. Though Restasis patents are scheduled to expire in August 2024, a generic version may be launched as early as mid-2018. Also, new competition for key growth drivers, Restasis and Linzess, is an investor concern. Allergan’s shares underperformed the industry in the past six months. " (1/2/2018)
