Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cytokinetics stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our thesis is based on three key areas at the company: (1) omecamtiv mecarbil program in heart failure with global partner Amgen (AMGN; not rated) and a projected significant boost in visibility this year (primary valuation contribution); (2) the volatile reldesmtiv program (ALS and SMA), which is expected to provide major answers this year; and (3)." (1/22/2019)
  • 2. 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. " (1/21/2019)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We have an Overweight rating based on ome’ in chronic HF and relde’ in SMA & ALS. For ome’, GALACTIC-HF data are expected in 2021, with interim reads in ’19 (futility) and ’20 (efficacy) that may lead to milestone payments to CYTK. Recent relde’ P2 data in SMA showed clinical benefit in 6MWD & MEP which enhances PoS in Type III SMA in our view. With VITALITY-ALS lessons learned & SMA PoC in hand, we are cautiously optimistic on relde’ prospects and believe investors may be overlooking potential value creation within the next 12 months."
