What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pfizer stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pfizer stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". After speaking with five oncologists, we see two growth drivers for Ibrance that represent meaningful upside to consensus sales and our numbers. These opportunities include: OUS expansion and the use of Ibrance in the earlier-stage adjuvant setting. Our discussions focused on answering the following questions: (1) What is the remaining growth/market penetration opportunity for CDK 4/6s in the currently approved indications?; (2) How much share erosion can we expect from other CDK 4/6s such as How high is physician conviction for PALLAS and How much will positive outcomes increase usage? Below we highlight our key takeaways." (9/13/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pfizer beat estimates for both earnings and sales in the second quarter. Pfizer is facing top-line headwinds in the form of genericization of key drugs, supply challenges in the legacy Hospira portfolio, pricing pressure and rising competition. Nonetheless, we believe that new products like Ibrance, contribution from acquisitions, cost-cutting efforts, a lower tax rate and share buybacks should help the company achieve its guidance.  Pfizer also boasts a strong pipeline and expects approximately 25 to 30 drug approvals through 2022, including around 15 products that have blockbuster potential. Pfizer’s growing immuno-oncology portfolio has strong potential.  Bavencio is being considered a key long-term growth driver for Pfizer. In oncology, Pfizer has four potential medicines under FDA’s priority review. The shares have outperformed the industry this year so far." (8/6/2018)
