Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Nektar Therapeutics reported a loss of $0.26 per share in the second quarter of 2014, narrower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of $0.38 and the year-ago loss of $0.37. Revenues of $28.5 million beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $21 million. Nektar is highly dependent on its pipeline. Any hiccup in the development process will weigh heavily on the stock. Moreover, most of the company’s pipeline programs are in association with partners. The dependence on partners is not a risk free strategy. We advise long-term investors to avoid the stock, given the challenges facing the company. We maintain an underperform recommendation on Nektar. “
