Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Rhythm Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are reiterating our Buy rating and our $34 target price on RYTM shares after the company reported its 2Q19 financials and business update. As we highlighted in our recent upgrade note (here), at the current share price, we believe there is a favorable risk/reward ahead of the Phase 3 data readouts for setmelanotide in POMC and LEPR deficiency obesities which are expected in the coming weeks. We believe both Phase 3 studies will be positive and in our homerun" scenario the stock could move up to the low ~$40 range. Additionally, we believe the 4Q19 update from management on its ongoing patient identification efforts for POMC/LEPR and other MC4R pathway disorders remain an unappreciated catalyst investors should be tracking."
