“Valuation and risks to price target achievement. We reiterate our Buy rating and $11 price target. Our valuation is based on our clinical net present value (NPV) model, which is currently driven by the company’s two lead assets, CK-301 and CK-101. This model allows us to flex multiple assumptions affecting a drug’s potential commercial profile. Factors which could impede reaching our price target include failed or inconclusive clinical trials or inability of the company to secure adequate funding to progress its drugs through the development pathway.”
