Cantor Fitzgerald Sticks to Its Buy Rating for Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Co Ltd (BHVN)


In a report released today, Charles Duncan from Cantor Fitzgerald reiterated a Buy rating on Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Co Ltd (BHVN), with a price target of $65. The company’s shares opened today at $36.15.

Duncan said:

“. We reiterate our Overweight rating and raise our PT to $65 from $55 on shares of BHVN. This morning, Biohaven announced positive topline data from a P3 trial with the ODT formulation of rimegepant, demonstrating that the PK benefit of a faster Tmax translated to therapeutic benefit of more rapid onset for ODT rime’ vs the tablet. These results exceed our expectations because, although the PK set-up was positive, we had been concerned that the ability to differentiate clinically may have been a challenge. Therefore, our base case was the ODT version of rime’ was going to be simply a “convenience play”, not a “clinical efficacy play”.”
