What are Wall Street analysts saying about Vital Therapies stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Vital Therapies stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Vital Therapies, Inc. is a biotherapeutic company. It is focused on developing a cell-based therapy targeting the treatment of acute liver failure. The Company operates in the United States, Europe, and China. Vital Therapies, Inc. is based in San Diego, California. " (11/17/2018) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are downgrading our rating on VTL shares from and establishing a new PT of $0.50 from $18. We had believed learnings from a post-hoc analysis of the VTL-208 Phase 2 study that were incorporated into the VTL-308 trial design could bias the outcome in a positive way. VTL has provided no specific details of the VTL-308 results, but disclosure that the trial failed to meet the primary and secondary endpoints and that development would cease is adequately informative. The company also announced that it would pursue strategic options, which we suppose could include a merger with a company seeking a U.S. public listing." (9/12/2018) 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Q2 earnings call revolved around the upcoming topline data from its VTL-308 trial in severe alcoholic hepatitis (sAH). The data set is expected to be locked soon and topline data will be press released in the back half of September, with a conference call to follow. We see the announcement as a binary event. Although the insights discussed during May’s R&D Day left us with a better understanding of how ELAD should work, we remain cautious. With VTL-308 targeting patients who fit specific enrollment criteria that seems more likely to show a survival benefit, we see the likelihood of positive data as better than even, but nowhere near a shoo-in (perhaps 65-35)."
