What are analysts saying about NewLink Genetics Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about NewLink Genetics Corporation stock:

  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Incremental Data Points in the Right Direction. Updated data from the Phase I/II trial in advanced melanoma (excluding ocular melanoma), showed improving complete responses (CRs) to 20% vs. 12% reported at six months. The overall response rate (ORR) and disease control rate (DCR) were stable at 61% and 80%, respectively, vs. 59% and 80% at six months." (9/8/2017)
  • 2.

Its portfolio also includes biologic and small-molecule immunotherapy products used for the treatment of oncology indications. NewLink Genetics Corporation is headquartered in Ames, Iowa. " (7/29/2017)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "NLNK shares are looking increasingly actionable ahead of what we believe could prove to be a transformational next 1-6 months ' highlighted by two indoximod-related presentations at the upcoming AACR meeting and a critical mid-FY17 data disclosure from partner Roche. We believe incremental data from the P2 trial evaluating the combination of indoximod/pembrolizumab will provide an apples/apples comparison to Incyte/Merck's epacadostat/pembrolizumab P2 melanoma data ' potentially dispelling the prevailing 'I DON'T' inhibitor thesis and providing a future runway for value attribution (now made even easier with the recent filing of additional formulation-related IP). We believe P1b data from the Roche development program evaluating the combination of atezolizumab/GDC-0919 may represent the first mechanistic/translational evidence supporting the contribution of IDO inhibition to an immunotherapy-based regimen ' significantly improving visibility into a meaningful stream of future non-dilutive revenue. Target increased to $26 (previously $22)." (3/1/2017)
  • 4. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "NLNK plans to present more data on indoximod throughout 2017. At AACR in April there will be updated data on the pembro combo in melanoma with some baseline characteristics as well as preclinical data on the prodrug formulation of indoximod. Titles of these abstracts will be released tomorrow at 4:30pm. Additional data will be seen from the panc cancer trial combo with gem/ Abraxane in 2H17. We continue to await data from the GDC-0919 program." (3/1/2017)
