Cantor Fitzgerald Reaffirms Their Hold Rating on Momenta Pharma (MNTA)


In a report released today, Brandon Folkes from Cantor Fitzgerald reiterated a Hold rating on Momenta Pharma (NASDAQ: MNTA), with a price target of $24. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $20.67.

Folkes noted:

“. Ahead of MNTA’s novel pipeline 11 we have performed a pipeline deep dive, following which we reiterate our Neutral rating and a 12-month price target of $24. We view the company’s novel pipeline as potentially blockbuster, and Momenta, along with its partners, has proven the company’s expertise and ability to successfully develop complex products. However, given the early-stage nature of the company’s auto immune pipeline, we remain on the sidelines at this valuation. We could be more constructive on MNTA stock if the company is able to advance some of its early-stage, novel drugs and show positive data.”

According to TipRanks.com, Folkes is a 1-star analyst with an average return of -1.1% and a 37.5% success rate. Folkes covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Co Ltd, Opiant Pharmaceuticals Inc, and Eagle Pharmaceuticals Inc.
