“Valuation and risks to price target achievement. We maintain our Buy rating, though are lowering our price target to $7.75 from $11. Our price target change is based on removing CMB305 from our projections. Our valuation is based on our clinical net present value (NPV) model, which allows us to flex multiple assumptions affecting a drug’s potential commercial profile. We believe upside potential exists as the company explores additional tumor indications for G100, as well as potential contribution from pipeline development.”
