Maxim Group Thinks Yield10 Bioscience Inc’s Stock is Going to Recover

In a report released today, James Jang from Maxim Group reiterated a Buy rating on Yield10 Bioscience Inc (YTEN), with a price target of $4.50. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $1.45, close to its 52-week low of $1.12.

Jang wrote:

“We are lowering our price target to $4.50, from $7, as we now expect seed revenue generation to be pushed out to 2022 from 2020. We believe the Bayer (BAYRY: NR) acquisition of Monsanto has caused delays and although we believe YTEN’s trials will continue to yield positive results, we are taking a more conservative view in terms of commercialization.”

According to, Jang is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 14.8% and a 46.5% success rate. Jang covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as Sino-Global Shipping America, Nordic American Tanker, and Eagle Bulk Shipping.
