What are analysts saying about Merck & Company stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Merck has made significant progress with its pipeline and is working on bringing new products to the market. New products like Keytruda and Zepatier should continue to contribute meaningfully to sales. Keytruda is gaining strong momentum from new indication of first-line lung cancer. The Keytruda development program also significantly advanced in the first half with several key regulatory approvals. Meanwhile, Merck will continue to focus on cost-cutting initiatives to drive the bottom line. However, generic competition for several drugs and pricing pressure will continue to be overhangs on the top line. Rising competition in the immuno-oncology market is also a significant concern. Merck’s shares underperformed the industry this year so far. Estimates have declined slightly ahead of the company’s Q3 earnings release. Merck has a positive record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters." (10/17/2017)
  • 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "Although expectations for EPOCH were low, we were looking for an efficacy signal in mild patients, which would have increased expectations for the APECS study. Merck's press release does not provide details regarding subgroup analysis in mild patients; however, the language suggests little to no efficacy. This lowers our probability of success for APECS from 50% to 25%, Verubecestat risk-adjusted sales from ~$5Bn in 2026 to ~$2.5Bn, and our valuation from $72 to $70. However, investors should not give up on Verubecestat; APECS has a higher chance of success." (2/15/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Our Underperform rating is predicated on under-appreciated margin pressure in the base business as well as over-optimistic expectations for Keytruda." (1/12/2017)
