What are Wall Street analysts saying about Yield10 Bioscience stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Yield10 Bioscience stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " Punching Above Its Weight Class. Yield10 represents a $10 million market cap company with technology that we believe can stand up to that of the largest names in agriculture.
     Disruptive Technology. Growers are all about maximizing yield, and for decades yield enhancement technologies have been focused combatting invasive weeds and pests or by more effectively utilizing inputs. Alternatively, Yield10 has shown the ability in trials to increase yields by improving the photosynthetic process, which could fundamentally alter the yield equation.
     Look Past The Chart. Long a segment of bio-plastic producer Metabolix, Yield10 stands alone as of 2017 following a spinoff of the bio-plastic division. As such, the historic price chart is not indicative of the performance of Yield10.
     Commercial Relationships In Early Stages. Since late 2017, two research license agreements have been reached with Monsanto and Forage Genetics International, major players in the soybean and sorghum markets, respectively. While these are research agreements for now, we believe these announcements validate Yield10’s technology and represent the kind of relationships that could generate commercial revenue.
     High Ceiling Value. Between the value of the IP portfolio in the near term, and the potential value provided by commercial revenue streams, we believe shares of Yield10 could prove to be materially undervalued at current levels. Should commercialization agreements materialize, we believe our twelve month price target could prove to be conservative." (1/23/2019)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Today before market open, YTEN announced it granted a research license to Forage Genetics to evaluate novel yield traits in sorghum. Forage Genetics, a subsidiary of Land O’Lakes (private) devoted to seed technologies, will evaluate five novel traits within its sorghum development program to attempt to improve biomass yields. We view the research license as a long term positive, as sorghum is a leading North American export; additionally, China imports ~96% of sorghum from the U.S. We reiterate our Buy rating and $7 Price Target."
