What are Wall Street analysts saying about OvaScience stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about OvaScience stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Refocus on Science Should Aid in the Long Term; Reit Buy Incremental progress as the company seeks to capitalize upon its internal expertise in cell biology. On yesterday’s 4Q17 call, the company provided an update on the OvaPrime and OvaTure programs as management pivoted to a R&D-focused strategy. We think the key takeaways are two-fold: (1) the interim data from the first 20 patients in the Phase 1 trial of OvaPrime appear to deliver bittersweet news. The safety data look clean, but no strong signals were observed on the secondary endpoints that could suggest efficacy. As a result, this trial has terminated patient enrollment, and per management, the company will advance OvaPrime directly to a Phase 1b/2a study in 2H18 with an improved cell processing technique to hopefully improve efficacy."
