Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cytokinetics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cytokinetics is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing first-in-class muscle activators as potential treatments for debilitating diseases in which muscle performance is compromised and/or deteriorating. With an unmatched understanding of muscle biology and mechanics of muscle performance, the company is developing small molecule drug candidates engineered to increase muscle function and contractility. Cytokinetics' lead drug candidate is tirasemtiv, a fast skeletal muscle activator, for the potential treatment of ALS. Tirasemtiv has been granted orphan drug designation and fast track status by the FDA and orphan medicinal product designation by the EMA. Cytokinetics is collaborating with Amgen Inc. to develop omecamtiv mecarbil, a novel cardiac muscle activator, for the potential treatment of heart failure, and with Astellas Pharma Inc. to develop CK-2127107, a fast skeletal muscle activator, for the potential treatment of spinal muscular atrophy. " (8/23/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our OW rating and 12-month and raise our price target from $10 to $14 per share of CYTK primarily driven by increased visibility on the omecamtiv (ome’) programs with the initiation of the P3 METEORIC-HF study and removal of the FORTITUDE-ALS overhang. On Thursday AMC Cytokinetics reported 1Q19 revenue of $8.5M & cash of $177M. Our model projects current cash provides two years of runaway (through 2020), which should include readout of the METEORIC-HF studies." (5/10/2019)
  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and potential impediments to achieving it. We reiterate our Buy rating and $26 target. We highlight that omecamtiv, partnered globally with Amgen, drives the lion’s share of our current valuation (>80%). Reldesemtiv (CK-107) represents the remainder of the contribution to our valuation (10.2% for SMA and 6.3% for ALS) with no contribution from the pipeline, especially CK-274, which is now clinical stage. Our price target is based on our clinical net present value (NPV) model." (5/6/2019)
