What are Wall Street analysts saying about Emergent Biosolutions stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Emergent Biosolutions stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". Post 2Q18, we are reiterating our Overweight rating and 12- month price target of $62. Emergent has successfully established itself as a leader in the biodefense field and has carved out a high-barrier-to-entry niche in that market. We believe the company’s business is a lot more durable than the Street is giving the company credit for. We expect Emergent to extend a number of its current contracts beyond current estimates. Emergent does not have the risk of commercial insurance reimbursement or payer pricing pressures on its products. The company has set a goal of $1B in revenue, which we expect it to reach through the renewal of contracts, pipeline advancements and business development." (8/2/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Emergent’s follow-on contract with the CDC and deals with the BARDA for BioThrax and NuThrax bode well for growth even though performance has been impacted by a delay in the timing of BioThrax deliveries and the delay in the timing of one ACAM2000 shipment. The shift of deliveries to the second quarter impacted both revenue and profitability. We are also positive on Emergent’s spin-off of its biosciences business into a separate publicly traded company as it resulted in reduction of the company’s cost structure. Shares have outperformed the broader industry in the last one year. However, the company derives the majority of revenues from BioThrax sales. Hence, its sole dependence on BioThrax for revenues is concerning. Moreover, Emergent depends on certain single-source suppliers for key materials and services that are necessary for the manufacture of BioThrax which is concerning." (7/10/2018)
