In a research report issued today, Oppenheimer analyst Rohit Vanjani maintained an Outperform rating on OvaScience Inc (NASDAQ:OVAS) with a $60 price target, after hosting investor meetings with OvaScience’s management. OvaScience shares are currently trading at $28, down $1.59 or 5.37%.
Vanjani noted, “Much of the focus of the meetings centered around the data presented at SRI, and we believe the meetings helped in explaining that data. The shares have been weak for the past two days, down ~16% (vs. S&P500 +0.5%) following a report published by the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation and circulated broadly. We believe the SIRF report has a number of inaccuracies and continue to view any weakness in OVAS as a buying opportunity.”
Furthermore, “Management noted that both patient and physician inquiries have ticked up since the SRI meeting. Further, the offering clinics are using the physician posters presented at SRI as well as the case studies featuring patient experiences/results in discussions for new AUGMENT consultations.”
