Roth Capital analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay was out pounding the table on bluebird bio Inc (NASDAQ:BLUE) Monday, reiterating a Buy rating and price target of $192, which represents a potential upside of 17% from where the stock is currently trading.
Chattopadhyay wrote, “With an estimated $900+M war chest, unambiguous data, a defined path to market, and an evolving immunotherapy program, bluebird remains wellpositioned, in our view. Given the robust appreciation in its shares (up 365% over the past year) and lack of near-term catalysts (post EHA), we are not surprised by the recent weakness (shares down 18% since May 29th 2015). We expect shares to be back in favor during 4Q heading into the ASH meeting and recommend accumulating on dips.”
