Cantor Fitzgerald Thinks Cidara Therapeutics’ Stock is Going to Recover

Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Louise Chen maintained a Buy rating on Cidara Therapeutics (CDTX) today and set a price target of $15. The company’s shares opened today at $4.13, close to its 52-week low of $3.36.

Chen observed:

“. Post a solid quarter of execution, we reiterate our OW rating and 12-month PT of $15 for CDTX shares. We think the Street underappreciates the sales potential of CDTX’s two pipeline assets: 1) Rezafungin for the treatment of life-threatening invasive fungal infections, and 2) Cloudbreak, an antimicrobial immunotherapy for the treatment of MDR gram-negative bacterial infections. Therefore, we expect pipeline advancements to drive upward earnings revisions to levels not yet reflected in FactSet consensus expectations. This should move CDTX’s stock higher.”

According to, Chen is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 17.6% and a 45.1% success rate. Chen covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Bausch Health Companies Inc, Amneal Pharmaceuticals Inc, and Aridis Pharmaceuticals Inc.

The word on The Street in general, suggests a Moderate Buy analyst consensus rating for Cidara Therapeutics with a $14.50 average price target.
