Analysts Are Bullish on These Healthcare Stocks: Celgene (CELG), Global Blood Therapeutics (GBT)


There’s a lot to be optimistic about in the Healthcare sector as 3 analysts just weighed in on Celgene (CELG), Global Blood Therapeutics (GBT) and RedHill Biopharma (RDHL) with bullish sentiments.

Celgene (CELG)

In a report released today, Leah R. Cann from Oppenheimer maintained a Buy rating on Celgene, with a price target of $163. The company’s shares opened today at $73.88, close to its 52-week low of $66.62.

Cann noted:

“ASH data for AUGMENT, TRANSCEND, BELIEVE and MEDALIST, were very impressive. The TRANSCEND data in relapsed/refractory CLL demonstrated very high ORRs with good durability. We currently have no impact by 2022 for JCAR17, but believe it has important potential post-2022. The positive AUGMENT data are very encouraging in this difficult to treat setting, and could provide a new chemotherapy- free option for these patients. Results from the BELIEVE study support luspatercept as a potential new treatment for adult patients with β-thalassemia, and results from MEDALIST support luspatercept in the treatment of patients with lower-risk MDS. These results for luspatercept in beta-thalassemia and in low-risk MDS could provide potential upside to our outlook, which remains unchanged at this time.”

According to TipRanks.com, Cann is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 3.6% and a 42.8% success rate. Cann covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Constellation Pharmaceuticals Inc, Miragen Therapeutics Inc, and CytomX Therapeutics Inc.
