Amarin (AMRN) Received its Third Buy in a Row
After Jefferies and H.C. Wainwright gave Amarin (NASDAQ: AMRN) a Buy rating last month, the company received another Buy, this time from Cantor Fitzgerald. Analyst Louise Chen reiterated a Buy rating on Amarin yesterday and set a price target of $35. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $18.08.
“We reiterate our OW rating on AMRN and think the peak sales potential of Vascepa is underappreciated. Therefore, we think upward earnings revisions to levels not reflected in FactSet consensus expectations should drive AMRN shares higher. Valuation Summary We continue to use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to get to our 12-month price target of $35.”
