Insmed Upgraded by StockNews.com from Sell to Hold after Earnings Report
In a surprising shift, biopharmaceutical company Insmed (NASDAQ:INSM) has been upgraded from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating by StockNews.com. This follows the release of the company’s earnings results on May 4th that showed a miss in EPS estimates.
Despite this setback, Insmed reported an increase in quarterly revenue of 22.8% year-over-year, bringing in $65.20 million compared to analyst estimates of $63.93 million. However, the company had a negative return on equity of 3,789.32% and a negative net margin of 212.33%.
These challenges have not gone unnoticed by investors or analysts who predict that Insmed will post -4.5 EPS for the current fiscal year. Nevertheless, StockNews.com decided to increase the company’s rating due to several factors including its expanding pipeline and promising treatments for rare lung diseases.
With the upgrade from “sell” to “hold,” it remains uncertain whether or not Insmed will continue to impress investors or if its financial performance will suffer further downgrades. However, this change in rating is indicative of the uncertainty surrounding the potential growth and success of biopharmaceutical companies.
As pharmaceutical research continues to evolve and competition within the industry continues to escalate, companies like Insmed must work diligently to ensure they remain ahead of their competitors while simultaneously finding ways to meet earnings expectations and keep their shareholders content.
Only time will tell how effective Insmed’s strategies are and whether or not it will see further upgrades or downgrades in its ratings moving forward.
