B.Riley FBR analyst Madhu Kumar reiterated a Buy rating on Iovance Biotherapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: IOVA) today and set a price target of $24. The company’s shares opened today at $11.23.
“Yesterday after market close, Biotherapeutics (IOVA) announced a corporate update on lead programs, tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) therapies lifileucel and LN-145, in advanced melanoma (lifileucel) and head and neck and cervical cancer (LN-145). We view this corporate update as net positive for IOVA shares, with an incremental delay in our launch assumptions for lifileucel being countered by the validation of IOVA’s TIL platform across the three solid cancers with these clinical updates. After model updates, we thus reiterate our IOVA Buy rating and $24 price target.”
