What are Wall Street analysts saying about MOTIF BIO PLC/S stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about MOTIF BIO PLC/S stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation methodology, risks and uncertainties. We employ a risk- adjusted net present value (rNPV) approach that yields $600M for iclaprim—with a 90% probability of success, 16% discount rate and 40% effective tax rate—and a price per share of $32.00 based on about 19M American Depositary Shares (ADSs) outstanding as of mid-2019." (8/14/2018)
  • 2. WBB Securities analysts commented, "We believe there is a critical need for novel antibiotics. Based on the clinical data provided through Phase 3 studies REVIVE-1 and REVIVE-2, iclaprim has a high probability of obtaining FDA approval. However, success for MTFB is not just manifest through clinical proof, but also through negotiating the vagaries of reimbursement, gaining clinician acceptance, hospital inclusion and inclusion in the overall patient care paradigm. Additionally, we remain concerned about the resourcing path regarding the future of iclaprim. We are therefore initiating our coverage of MTFB with a Sell rating and a 12- month price target of $7.00." (12/29/2017)
