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' recent acquisitions of PaxVax and Adapt Pharma look encouraging as they will expand the company’s presence in the public health threats market. 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. 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 manufacturing BioThrax. This in turn, also raises a concern. Estimates have gone up slightly ahead of Q4 earnings results. Emergent has a mixed record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (1/24/2019)

Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "As investors appreciate the durability and revenue potential of Emergent’s portfolio, we expect upward earnings revisions and multiple expansion to drive the stock higher. Valuation Summary We use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to get to our 12-month price target of $75.
