Cantor Fitzgerald Sticks to Their Buy Rating for Mallinckrodt (MNK)


In a report released today, Louise Chen from Cantor Fitzgerald maintained a Buy rating on Mallinckrodt (MNK), with a price target of $42. The company’s shares closed on Tuesday at $23.14.

Chen said:

“We rate MNK 12-month PT of $42. We think Mallinckrodt suffers from a perception problem that ties it to headline risks in the pharma industry (scrutiny of high-priced drugs, government investigations, etc.). This masks the growth potential of Mallinckrodt’s Specialty Brands business and its consistent ability to meet or beat expectations, in our opinion. Valuation Summary We use a blend of DCF and multiples (EV/EBITDA) analysis to get to our 12-month price target of $42.”

According to TipRanks.com, Chen is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 8.6% and a 39.1% success rate. Chen covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Bausch Health Companies Inc, Aridis Pharmaceuticals Inc, and Amneal Pharmaceuticals Inc.

The word on The Street in general, suggests a Hold analyst consensus rating for Mallinckrodt with a $32.55 average price target, implying a 40.7% upside from current levels. In a report issued on November 23, Canaccord Genuity also reiterated a Buy rating on the stock with a $40 price target.
