What are Wall Street analysts saying about Iovance Biotherapeutics stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Iovance Biotherapeutics stock: 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and impediments to achieving price target. We reiterate our Buy rating and price target of $26. Our target is based on our clinical net present value (NPV) model, which derives its primary value from LN-144 for metastatic melanoma currently. This model allows us to flex multiple assumptions affecting a drug’s potential commercial profile. Factors which could impede reaching our price target include failed or inconclusive clinical trials or inability of the company to secure adequate funding to progress its drugs through the development pathway." (11/12/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Iovance Biotherapeutics, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company. It focused on the development and commercialization of cancer immunotherapy products designed to harness the power of a patient's own immune system to eradicate cancer cells. Iovance Biotherapeutics Inc., formerly known as Lion Biotechnologies Inc., is based in SAN CARLOS, United States. " (10/17/2018) 3. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We now affirm our conviction view, seeing renewed opportunities for vast share price upside after a recent stock pullback. (On page 2 of this research, we highlight the vast opportunity in refractory melanoma.) Iovance’s recent pullback in stock performance may be due to a misunderstanding from erroneous reports regarding rights to TILs, and therefore presents a buying opportunity ahead of data readouts. We note the pullback coincided with the recent publication in a case study from Steven Rosenberg’s group at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) demonstrating remarkable efficacy of autologous TIL therapy in a patient with chemorefractory breast cancer. However, it was erroneously reported in multiple news outlets that Gilead (unrated) subsidiary Kite had signed an agreement for rights to the technology."
