Mizuho Securities Maintains a Buy Rating on Xeris Pharmaceuticals Inc (XERS)

In a report released today, Difei Yang from Mizuho Securities maintained a Buy rating on Xeris Pharmaceuticals Inc (XERS). The company’s shares closed yesterday at $25.

Yang observed:

“We do not see earnings as the most meaningful indication of value for an early-stage biotech. During the quarter, Xeris announced that the FDA accepted for review the NDA for the company’s glucagon rescue pen. A PDUFA goal date was set for 06/10/19. We believe the potential regulatory approval of the glucagon rescue pen is likely to be the most important catalyst for the shares in 2019. Assuming approval, we believe Xeris will be well positioned to take market share away from standard of care products. We updated our model. Our PT goes to $27/Reiterate Buy.”

According to, Yang is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 19.7% and a 48.3% success rate. Yang covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Alder Biopharmaceuticals, Audentes Therapeutics, and Revance Therapeutics.
