Zacks Pounds The Table On Rosetta Genomics


Zacks analyst Grant Zeng was out pounding the table on Rosetta Genomics Ltd. (USA) (NASDAQ:ROSG), reiterating an Outperform rating and a $10.50 price target, which represents a potential upside of 185% from where the stock is currently trading.

Zeng noted, “With accelerated revenue growth, Rosetta will become profitable in fiscal 2018 with earnings per share (EPS) of $0.32 based on total revenue of $50 million. EPS will grow to $1.31 per share in fiscal 2010 based on total revenue of $125 million, a 102% increase in the two year period. Recent two partnerships will accelerate revenue growth in 2015 and beyond. With all these in mind, we think Rosetta s shares are undervalued at current market price. Currently, Rosetta shares are trading at about $3.8 per share, which values the company at about $46 million in market cap based on 12 million outstanding shares. This is apparently a huge discount compared to its peers. As we said, Rosetta is a revenue generating diagnostics company targeting the high growth market of molecular diagnostics. The company s microRNA platform technology has broad applications targeting both diagnostics and therapeutics. We don t think the Street has recognized the potential of high revenue growth in the coming years for Rosetta.”

Furthermore, “Execution is the key to achieve expected growth and will have a significant impact on the share price. The fluctuation of the broader market in the US will also have impact on the company s share price in the next 6 to 12 months. In general, we think the company has a favorable risk/award profile at this time with downside risk relatively low and high upside potential.”
