What are Wall Street analysts saying about Emergent Biosolutions stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Emergent Biosolutions stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Emergent BioSolutions recorded high sales for both anthrax vaccine BioThrax as well as smallpox vaccine ACAM2000. The increase in BioThrax sales was primarily owing to the favorable timing of BioThrax deliveries to the SNS. We are 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 so far this year. Notably, the company derives majority of its revenues from BioThrax sales. Hence, its sole dependence on BioThrax for revenues is a headwind. Moreover, Emergent depends on certain single-source suppliers for key materials and services, which are necessary for manufacturg BioThrax. This in turn, also raises a concern." (11/13/2018)
  • 2. 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)
