What are Wall Street analysts saying about Melinta Therapeutics stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Melinta Therapeutics stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cempra Holdings, LLC is a pharmaceutical company engaged in developing antibiotics for the treatment of bacterial infectious diseases. It focuses on developing antibiotics for treating respiratory tract, skin and skin structure infections and to target the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance. Cempra Holdings, LLC is headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. " (11/16/2017)
- 2. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "Cempra announced this morning that the MAA filed in Europe has been withdrawn. We believe it is likely due to the same safety concerns brought up by the FDA. At this point, the path forward for solithromycin appears to us to be a dead end and any additional expenditures will only diminish the company's otherwise attractive cash position. We reiterate our Underperform rating." (3/28/2017)
- 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Incremental solithromycin updates provided on management's 4Q16 earnings announcement/call now meaningfully increase the likelihood this asset ' in its current formulation ' is unlikely to represent a source of any future value. In addition to FDA seemingly reiterating its stance on wanting 9,000 patients of additional CABP data to assuage hepatotoxicity concerns, EMA is now requesting additional data and management's commentary would suggest any regulatory path forward here is likely to prove challenging. Solithromycin also failed to achieve non-inferiority within the primary cohort of the P3 SOLITAIRE-U trial (gonorrhea), the NASH study has been suspended, and the COPD study has been closed. We've removed all solithromycin-related value (ex-Japan) from our model and believe any viable commercialization argument for Taksta is likely to hinge on YE17 P2 prosthetic joint infection data. Target decreased to $4 (previously $8)." (3/1/2017)

Melinta Therapeutics (NASDAQ:MLNT) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
