By Austin Angelo

Young commented:

“: Reiterate OW rating; increasing PT to $57/share. Nerlynx roared in 4Q, and 2019 guidance beats expectations. US Nerlynx sales were $61M vs. $53M consensus. Although gross to net was lower in 4Q, we think that 4Q represents a solid beat, and we saw growth in bottles of 12%. In addition, the company’s 2019 US guidance of $255-280M announced on the call exceeded expectations of $238M. Lastly, the company had its first cash flow positive quarter at ~$8M. Shares have recovered by 59% from their early November lows, but we think that there remains upside to shares from Nerlynx growth. We spoke to management post call and we highlight some of our key takes below.”

According to, Young is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 5.9% and a 48.8% success rate. Young covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, and Sarepta Therapeutics.
