Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:REGN)‘s stock had its “buy” rating restated by Canaccord Genuity in a note issued to investors on Wednesday. They presently have a $522.00 target price on the biopharmaceutical company’s stock. Canaccord Genuity’s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 56.00% from the company’s previous close.
The analysts wrote, “We are encouraged by better US Dupixent growth, but recognize that the pediatric atopic dermatitis market will be the core growth driver, with approval expected around 2021. Also, while we understand that REGN and investors are focusing more on Dupixent’s growth than EYLEA’s, the lack of EYLEA guidance going forward is concerning. REGN cannot give guidance on Dupixent since Sanofi books the revenues, and EYLEA is still expected to be the core revenue driver for REGN.””
