  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are less optimistic but could see future pricing upside later in the quarter (no 2019 price increases for Cambia, Zipsor, or Gralise as of yet). We were relieved to hear that there was no increased payer pressure on acute migraine drug, Cambia, which may have positive read-throughs to other migraine products we cover. The company plans to redouble its efforts on business development in 2019 and to refinance its senior secured debt. It may also attempt to monetize its royalty on the Ironwood GERD asset. Lastly, mgmt. continues to have encouraging discussions with large payers on Synacthen Depot and indicated that plans could see past its limited label if there was adequate safety data presented in the compendium. We expect the stock to get more interesting closer to Synacthen Depot approval in late 2019." (1/11/2019)
