  • 2. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "GBT reported 2Q results via press release (no conference call, as usual) that focused on lead program voxelotor in sickle cell disease. The print overall was uneventful as we await a regulatory update at some point in 2H18 on the potential for an accelerated approval filing. The other key event remaining this year is the presentation of detailed data from Part A of the Phase 3 HOPE trial anticipated at ASH in December." (8/5/2018)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We reaffirm our Overweight rating and $96 12-month price target for GBT. Based on the existing clinical data, we believe voxelotor offers a compelling treatment option in SCD that lacks disease-modifying therapies. $96 price target is based on the combination of our estimate of the NPV of future cash flows from voxelotor in SCD, worth approximately $4.7 billion ($88/share), and our estimate of YE18 cash of $424 million ($8/share)." (8/2/2018)
  • 4. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We continue to expect voxelotor in conjunction with HU to become the standard-of-care, especially in younger patients, which could make these patients asymptomatic much like SCD-trait subjects. Our Buy rating and price target of $125 is based on a DCF analysis, derived using a beta of 1.5, terminal growth rate of 0.5%, risk premium of 4.93%, calculated WACC of 10.4%, and tax rate of 15% beginning in FY 2024. We estimate approximately 70K patients in U.S., 42K patients in the $$60K (increased from $75K and $50K) U.S." (7/27/2018)
  • 5. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Here we review our expectations for Part A of the HOPE trial which includes survey findings from 36 sickle cell disease (SCD) experts. We believe there is more than one path forward for voxelotor, but we think upside potential could vary significantly based on Part A findings. If reported Part A outcomes meet expectations as defined below, we think the stock could easily return to the $70 level (+60%) it was trading at in January." (4/26/2018)
