What are analysts saying about Pfizer stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pfizer stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pfizer has been working on strengthening its product portfolio as well as pipeline through acquisitions and licensing deals. While the Hospira acquisition significantly expanded Pfizer's sterile injectable and biosimilar capabilities, the Medivation deal strengthened its cancer franchise by adding Xtandi to its portfolio. Pfizer’s new products like Ibrance should do well and drive revenues in 2017 while cost-savings and share buybacks should boost earnings. Pfizer’s shares surpassed that of large-cap pharma industry in the past one year. The company has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Investor focus will remain on the stock as Pfizer has several key pipeline milestones in 2017. However, headwinds remain in the form of genericization, pricing pressure and rising competition, which will continue to hamper top-line growth. Estimates have declined slightly ahead of its Q4 earnings release." (1/25/2017)

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We wanted to highlight a key data catalyst in which a positive outcome can drive shares higher: PIIa data for XEN801 for mod-to-severe acne in the latter part of Q1 (JEF est: ~Mar). We continue to like the risk/reward going into the data, especially on the heels of Dermira’s positive PIIb data for DRM01, which operates on the same pathway but more upstream. Reiterating Buy and $13 PT. Highlighting Key PIIa Data Catalyst in Latter Part of Q1: We wanted to take the opportunity to highlight a key data catalyst in which a positive outcome can drive shares higher: topline PIIa data catalyst for XEN801 for moderate-to-severe acne in the latter part of Q1 (JEF estimate: ~Mar). We previously conducted a review on XEN801 in April ’16, which can be found here, and now that the data catalyst is drawing near, we wanted to take the chance to highlight it again. To recap, the PIIa trial is a randomized, double- blind, multicentre, vehicle-controlled trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of patients with moderate-to-severe acne. The trial will compare XEN801 topical gel (1%) and matching placebo gel for 12 weeks with a 4-week follow-up. XENE has randomized 165 patients (v. 150 that was planned at conception), and has 85% power (v. 80% previously) to detect a ~16% difference." (1/19/2017)
