  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate the Overweight rating and 12-month PT of $16 for CBAY stock. We believe evidence provided thus far support the notion that seladelpar will become an important new agent for treating primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) by virtue of its potentially superior safety profile characterized by the lack of pruritus induction. Efficacy as a treatment for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) would significantly increase the drug’s commercial potential and broaden interest in the company from other biopharma industry participants, in our view."
