Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aptose Biosciences stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Aptose Biosciences Inc. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company. The company is advancing therapeutics to treat life-threatening cancers, such as acute myeloid leukemia, high-risk myelodysplastic syndromes and other hematologic malignancies. Its lead program APTO-253 has completed a Phase 1 study in patients with solid tumors. Aptose Biosciences Inc., formerly known as Lorus Therapeutics Inc., is headquartered in Toronto, Canada. " (3/15/2019)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and impediments to achieving price target. We reiterate our Buy and $8.50 price target. Our target is based on our clinical net present value (NPV) model, which derives its value from both the CG-806 opportunity in AML and APTO-253 opportunity in AML and MDS. This model allows us to flex multiple assumptions affecting a drug’s potential commercial profile. Factors which could impede reaching our price target include failed or inconclusive clinical trials or inability of the company to secure adequate funding to progress its drugs through the development pathway."
