H.C. Wainwright Sticks to Their Buy Rating for CytomX Therapeutics Inc (CTMX)


In a report released today, Ram Selvaraju from H.C. Wainwright reiterated a Buy rating on CytomX Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: CTMX), with a price target of $32. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $16.46, close to its 52-week low of $15.95.

Selvaraju said:

“We remain confident in the CytomX platform and reiterate our Buy rating and 12-month price target of $32.00 per share. Official poster content likely to be critical for CytomX. First, we anticipate a roughly three-month longer median follow-up for both the monotherapy (Part A1) and combo (Part B) arms, and additional patients in the combo arm. This is particularly important given the observation that a low G3/4 TRAE rate in early Opdivo + Yervoy trials appears to correct with larger sample sizes and/or longer follow-up. While we maintain our belief that CX-072 monotherapy may not provide a substantial safety benefit, given the relatively low side effect profile of anti-PD1/L-1 monotherapy, in our opinion, CX-072 + Yervoy has a much greater likelihood of meaningfully lowering G3/4 TRAEs.”
