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 1Q19, we reiterate our Overweight rating and our 12- month price target of $75. EBS continues to be the leader in the biodefense field, and the acquisition of Adapt and PaxVax leverage the company’s historical expertise, while further diversifying revenue away from BioThrax. We continue to believe the company’s business is a lot more durable than the Street is giving it credit for, and we expect Emergent to extend a number of its current contracts beyond current estimates, as well as bring some significant pipeline product to market over time. Emergent does not have the risk of commercial insurance reimbursement or payer pricing pressures on the majority of its portfolio." (5/2/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Emergent BioSolutions' recent acquisitions of PaxVax and Adapt Pharma have expanded the company’s presence in the public health threats market. Its anthrax vaccine, NuThrax’s regulatory application is under review, with a decision expected in the first half of 2019. 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 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, raises a concern. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry so far this year. Estimates have narrowed ahead of Q1 earnings. Emergent has a mixed record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters."
