  • 1. 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)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and impediments to achieving price target. We reiterate our Buy rating and are increasing our price target to $26 from $22. The drivers to our valuation change include the following: (1) adjustment to base year; (2) adjustment to fully diluted share count off of today’s equity raise (negative impact); (3) adjusting our projected launch year for melanoma from 2020 to 2021; (4) including ex-U.S. projections for melanoma, maintaining same 75% chance of success as our U.S projections, and projecting a 2021 launch year and $750 million in peak sales (our U.S." (10/12/2018)
  • 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." (7/6/2018)
