What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pfizer stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pfizer stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pfizer expects continued strong growth of key product franchises, including Ibrance, Eliquis, Xeljanz and Xtandi in 2019. However, loss of exclusivity on key drugs in the United States., mainly Lyrica and currency headwinds are expected to significantly hurt its 2019 sales. Other top-line headwinds are weak sales in the EH segment, pricing pressure and rising competition. To offset the threat of generic competition, Pfizer is strengthening its pipeline as well as oncology portfolio. Pfizer looks well positioned to deliver several potential new breakthrough innovative medicines in the next five years, which can drive long-term growth. Biosimilars are also expected to contribute to growth in 2019. Shares have underperformed the industry this year so far. Estimates have gone down slightly ahead of Q1 earnings release. Pfizer has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (4/10/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We reiterate our OW rating and think respectable earnings growth, driven by Innovative Medicines, pipeline advancements, and return of capital to PFE’s shareholders — above the industry average — are all underappreciated. Therefore, we believe multiple expansion and upward earnings revisions should drive PFE shares higher. Valuation Summary We use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to get to our 12-month price target of $53." (2/19/2019)
