What are analysts saying about Aduro Biotech stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aduro Biotech stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Aduro’s lead candidate, CRS-207, being evaluated for a number of cancer indications, bodes well for long-term growth. Moreover, its collaboration agreements with large pharma companies, Novartis, Johnson & Johnson and Incyte are big positives for the company. Aduro has a broad and a promising pipeline of novel immunotherapies under development for the treatment of a variety of cancers. Aduro’s efforts to develop its pipeline are encouraging. However, Aduro depends largely on funds generated from collaboration and license agreements, government grants and other payments for the development of its pipeline candidates. Thus, inability to secure sufficient funding could hinder its pipeline progress. Aduro’s shares underperformed the industry in the last one year. Estimates have been going up lately ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. The company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (8/2/2017)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "1Q17 results recap. Adjusted non-GAAP revenue (excluding the individual commercial business) grew 4.4% year over year. Adjusted MLR was 85.2% compared to 85.0% a year ago. MLR benefitted from the exit of certain Medicare markets, which was offset to some degree by lower prior period development when compared to a year ago. Cost trends appear to be in check, consistent with other publicly-traded health insurers." (5/3/2017)
  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Aduro Biotech, Inc.’s (ADRO) cancer immunotherapy platform triggers both innate and adaptive immunity, resulting in a broad and potent multi-pronged immune response. The company’s engineered live, attenuated, double-deleted (LADD) Listeria monocytogenes program is capable of inducing an antigen-specific adaptive T-cell response (CD8+ and CD4+), as well as an innate immune response that includes cytokines, chemokines, gamma delta T cells, and NK cells. The company’s STING (Stimulator of Interferon Genes, driven by cytosolic DNA) platform induces dendritic cells and enhances an anti-tumor T-cell response in the tumor microenvironment. Aduro’s third technology platform is B-select, based on clonal expansion of B cells producing highly selective and functional antibodies against targets that regulate the immune response. Given that the future of cancer immunotherapy points to combinations, Aduro’s programs are complementary combination approaches that activate distinct mechanisms of actions that could be synergistic."
