What are Wall Street analysts saying about Calyxt stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Calyxt stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Calyxt, Inc. is a consumer-centric, food- and agriculture-focused company. It researches and develops seeds and food ingredients for agricultural, feed, and food applications as well as offers fat saturation and gluten reduction in soybean oil and wheat. Calyxt, Inc. is based in New Brighton, United States. " (5/28/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "CLXT’s 1st product launch, HOSO, is tracking better than expected & its high- fiber wheat product (significantly more profitable than HOSO) just received non-regulated status. In addition, recent developments around gene-editing on the global regulatory front have been positive and point to a potentially larger TAM. We continue to believe the market is underestimating the value of CLXT’s R&D pipeline and, as such, we reiterate our Buy rating & $27 PT. We remain encouraged by commentary on the HOSO commercialization progress. Mgmt’s HOSO commercialization plan continues to track in line with or better than our previous expectations. We were previously assuming ~50 contracted farmers in 2018, however the company has already contracted with “over 60” farmers thus far, representing ~$11.5K acres of CLXT’s HO soybeans (we were assuming $10K acres in 2018). In addition, farmer retention rates have been very strong (>90%) & repeat growers, on average, are planting >2x their previous acres of CLXT’s HO variety, which bodes well for a successful commercialization. The company remains engaged with about a dozen small to large food company customers on HOSO." (3/22/2018)
