What are Wall Street analysts saying about Nightstar Therapeutics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nightstar Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are reiterating our Overweight rating and $42/share price target on Nightstar Therapeutics. This morning, Spark (N) announced a definitive agreement to be acquired by Roche (RHHBY, NC) for $4.8 billion, or $114.50/share (a 122% premium). While we believe the primary driver of the acquisition was Spark’s hemophilia A program, we have observed a trend in late- stage gene therapy company acquisitions. Given that Nightstar is one of the furthest along with a Phase 3 trial reading out next year, we believe the company deserves a seat at the table for acquisition talks and interest from pharma." (2/26/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nightstar Therapeutics Limited is a clinical-stage gene therapy company. It focused on developing and commercializing novel one-time treatments for patients suffering from rare inherited retinal diseases including choroideremia, X-linked retinitis pigmentosa and Best vitelliform macular dystrophy. The company operates primarily in North America and Europe. Nightstar Therapeutics Limited is based in LONDON, United Kingdom. " (1/9/2019)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We attended Nightstar’s R&D Day yesterday where management presented preliminary data from the dose escalation study of NSR-RPGR for the treatment of X-Linked Retinitis Pigmentosa. We were encouraged by early signals observed in all cohort 3 patients and 2/6 patients in cohorts 4 and 5. However, the therapeutic dose to be taken into the upcoming expansion study remains to be determined as higher dose responders required a second course of steroids to control mild sub-retinal inflammation. The next important catalyst for the shares will be 2Q19 with six-months follow-up data from the dose escalation study. We maintain our Buy rating on the stock." (9/25/2018)
