What are Wall Street analysts saying about Johnson & Johnson stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Johnson & Johnson stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "J&J’s Pharma segment is performing better than the market in 2018 despite the impact of biosimilars on Remicade sales. Also, the Medical Devices and Consumer units are seeing improving organic growth trends.J&J has raised its full-year organic sales growth outlook thrice this year. Though quite a few key products in J&J’s portfolio like Remicade and Concerta are facing generic competition, we believe that new products in all segments, successful label expansion of cancer drugs like Imbruvica and Darzalex and contribution from recent acquisitions will continue to drive top-line growth. J&J enjoys a robust multi-year pipeline of new drugs and line extensions. Meanwhile, share buybacks and restructuring initiatives should provide bottom-line support. J&J’s shares have outperformed the industry in the past six months. Headwinds like generics, pricing pressure and soft global market conditions remain." (11/20/2018)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Present – Starting to Outweigh Macro Tailwinds On Tuesday before market-open, JNJ reported 4Q17 financial results. In- line with our forecasting for the Pharma segment, the Actelion portfolio has begun to significantly disappoint expectations, Remicade erosion is accelerating, and mainstay franchises such as Imbruvica are beginning to moderate growth. The major discussion point we have had with investors is whether our negative Pharma thesis can trump the positive macro factors. We continue to think so, despite tailwinds such as tax reform helping the stock and overall stock market during 2H2017. At the end of the day, Pharma drives over 50% of total profit generation for the company. We reiterate our Sell rating and $110 PT.   We forecast 1Q18 as the peak of recent Pharma growth and expect a mirror image of 2017 for the remainder of the year, whereby growth will moderate significantly into 2H2018: Our forecast calls for Pharma operational growth of +9.2%/ 6.3%/ 5.1%/ 4.3% during 1Q – 4Q2018, and we now explicitly include the approval of apalutamide within our forecasts (drug model inside report).   Remicade erosion starting to become impactful and deteriorating pricing is likely affecting overall company gross margins: Mgmt noted that volumes for Remicade were generally steady during 4Q17, but this has come at the expense of pricing declines, which is a pure hit to product margins. Our best estimate is that the price erosion of Remicade negatively impacted overall company gross margins by – 30bps YoY during 4Q17." (1/24/2018)
