FBR Analyst Adjusts Price Target for Galena Biopharma Inc (GALE) Post Reverse Stock Split


In a research report released Friday, FBR analyst Vernon Bernardino reiterated an Outperform rating on shares of Galena Biopharma Inc (NASDAQ:GALE), while adjusting the price target to $11.00 (from $40.00), following recent reverse 1-for-20 stock split. Galena shares are currently trading at $2.92, up $0.18 or +6.57%.

Bernardino noted, “As a reminder, 2016 Galena’s Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) completed an interim analysis of GALE’s PRESENT Phase III study with NeuVax in breast cancer (BC) in June 2016 and recommended that PRESENT be stopped due to futility. After a thorough investigation of the results, Galena identified several factors that may preserve the future value of NeuVax. We removed its contribution in our models, resulting in a price target reduction to $11 versus our prior $40 (post reverse 1-for-20 stock split). We think the insights gained from PRESENT and positive results from ongoing combination studies could prompt us to revisit our assumptions.”
