Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We have an Overweight rating based on expectations for increasingly visible pipeline progress with ome’ in chronic HF and relde’ in SMA, ALS, COPD and frailty. For ome’ development, GALACTIC-HF data are expected in 2021, with interim reads in ’19 (futility) and ’20 (efficacy) that may lead to large milestone payments to CYTK and/or acquisition interest.
