  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cidara Therapeutics, Inc. is a biotechnology company. The company is focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel anti-infectives. Its product pipeline includes CD101 IV, a long-acting echinocandin antifungal, CD101 topical and C001 which are in different clinical trial. The company developed its product using Cloudbreak(TM) immunotherapy platform. Cidara Therapeutics, Inc. is headquartered in San Diego, California. " (11/13/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". Post a solid quarter of execution, we reiterate our OW rating and 12-month PT of $15. We think the Street underappreciates the sales potential of CDTX’s two pipeline assets: 1) Rezafungin for the treatment of life-threatening invasive fungal infections, and 2) Cloudbreak, an antimicrobial immunotherapy for the treatment of MDR gram-negative bacterial infections. Therefore, we expect pipeline advancements to drive upward earnings revisions to levels not yet reflected in consensus expectations. This should move CDTX’s stock higher." (8/8/2018)
