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, "The Consumer Healthcare joint venture with Glaxo, the Array acquisition and the pending merger of Upjohn unit with Mylan, if successful, will make Pfizer a smaller company with a diversified portfolio of innovative drugs and vaccines. The smaller Pfizer should see better revenue growth as the Lyrica LOE cliff will go away. Pfizer expects continued strong growth of key brands like Ibrance and Eliquis and biosimilars to drive sales in the second half. Pfizer is also strengthening its pipeline and hopes to launch new innovative medicines in the next five years, which can drive long-term growth. However, currency headwinds, weak sales in the sterile injectables portfolio, pricing pressure and some recent negative product developments for Prevnar and Xeljanz, are top-line headwinds. Shares have underperformed the industry this year so far. " (10/1/2019)
  • 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)
