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. " (3/12/2020)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " Second Quarter Shows Progress And Growing Pains. With low and lumpy volumes in its first
    year of commercialization and weather issues reducing planted acreage from prior estimates,
    CLXT’s second quarter brought a degree of near term revenue uncertainty. OpEx also moved up
    sequentially more than we estimated. While a modest disappointment, we consider the
    improvement in distribution network and the market acceptance of the lead product to be
    encouraging and far more important to the value proposition.
     Customer Adoption Accelerates. With 20 customers currently, up from low single digits since
    the first quarter, we believe the market for both oil and meal is strong. As the company builds
    scale, we do not believe securing customers will be a meaningful hurdle. The next major bar is
    securing from consumer goods customers, which we expect over the next twelve months.
     Guilt By Association. Unwinnable tariff wars and weather challenges have dragged down Ag
    stocks this year. We believe CLXT is less exposed to these issues and can actually benefit from
    weak markets given its differentiated product offering in a commoditized space, yet the stock has
    underperformed its peers with more exposure to these variables.
     Lower Price Target, But Deep Value Opportunity. We believe the declines of 66% from its YTD
    high, and 32% in the past seven trading days alone are not justified and put the stock in deep
    value territory. Our lower price target is a reflection of adjustments to our model and assumed
    multiple, not a reflection of the value proposition which we believe remains significant." (8/8/2019)
