  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are reiterating our OW rating and increasing our PT to $24 from $18 on Aurinia following 4Q18/2018 fiscal earnings. We are increasing our price target due to Aurinia’s recent Notice of Allowance regarding a U.S. patent related to voclosporin’s method of use. We no longer anticipate a decrease in the voclosporin price in 2027 from generic entry. The largest driver of Aurinia’s shares will likely be a focus on Phase 3 data for voclosporin for the treatment of lupus nephritis (LN), which could be announced by year-end 2019. Aurinia is creating a blueprint for how to advance the remaining pipeline, which targets additional significant market opportunities." (3/19/2019)
