What are analysts saying about Johnson & Johnson stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Johnson & Johnson stock:

  • 1. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Yesterday, we attended JNJ’s Pharma day held in New Brunswick, NJ. The overarching theme of the day was the expectation that the Pharma business outgrows the IMS projected ~5% 5-year CAGR for branded drugs. Our model is significantly below such expectations, as we have reported growth of ~6.5% during 2017 falling to ~3.6% in 2018 and essentially flat through 2020. Our numbers may prove conservative given that we do not currently include new drug launches of esketamine, guselkumab and sirukumab. We remain Neutral, as we think that the Oncology landscape is becoming more complicated and the Immunology portfolio may underperform internal expectations as a new class of oral drugs comes to market." (5/21/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "J&J’s Pharma segment is performing well despite challenges like generic competition for a few products, potential biosimilar competition and lower HCV revenues.  While Pfizer’s launch of biosimilar Remicade creates some uncertainty regarding the segment’s sales growth in 2017, we believe that the impact may be manageable. Contribution from new as well as core products, share buybacks and the restructuring initiative should help drive results. Estimates have remained mostly stable lately ahead of the Q4 earnings results. J&J has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. J&J's shares have surpassed that of large-cap pharma industry in 2016. However, headwinds persist in the form of generics and biosimilar competition and pricing pressure." (1/9/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "With biosimilars and generics expected to drag the next few years, we expect JNJ will continue look to M&A to augment growth. Whilst this should ultimately drive better growth, we believe that investors will not reward the shares for this initially." (1/5/2017)
