What are analysts saying about Genocea Biosciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Genocea Biosciences stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Genocea Biosciences, Inc. is involved in developing vaccines. The company's proprietary discovery platform consists of AnTigen Lead Acquisition System which designs vaccines that stimulate T cell immunity. Its product portfolio which are in different clinical trials consist of GEN-003, HSV-2 infections, GEN-004 and HSV-2 prophylaxis and malaria. Genocea Biosciences, Inc. is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts. " (5/16/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Genocea announced positive results from its Phase 2b trial of GEN-003 in Herpes Simplex Type 2 (HSV2) in early Jan 2017. Given financial constraints, however, mgmt now plans to seek a collaborator prior to initiation of Phase 3 development. We believe this creates meaningful uncertainty for GEN-003 development timelines as well as the stock. Mgmt previously announced a shift in strategic focus from infectious disease to immuno-oncology. However, initial candidate from latter program is not expected to reach clinical development until YE17. We are downgrading to HOLD based on uncertainty around GEN-003 and lack of near-term milestones w/ immuno-oncology program. ATLAS platform holds substantial value and we believe stock remains attractive for long-term investors w/ horizon beyond 2017." (2/17/2017)
