What are Wall Street analysts saying about BioTime stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BioTime stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks to price target achievement. We are instituting a Buy rating and $4 price target. Our valuation is based on our clinical net present value (NPV) model, which allows us to flex multiple assumptions affecting a drug’s potential commercial profile. Our valuation is currently based on the opportunities for OpRegen (approximately 57% valuation contribution) on only the U.S. opportunity and Revevia (43% valuation contribution) in the E.U. We note that our current projected values for both these assets are based on minimal market penetration in very large markets." (2/21/2019)

Maxim Group analysts commented, "BioTime announced that its affiliate, OncoCyte (OCX – NR, BTX has 36% stake), reported positive results from an R&D validation study of DetermaVu, a non- invasive, liquid biopsy test for the early diagnosis of lung cancer. On this news, BioTime shares on 1/29 were up ~50%, OncoCyte shares were up over 200%, and even Asterias (AST – NR) shares, a cell therapy company soon to be fully acquired by BioTime, were up ~45%."
