MEI Pharma (MEIP) Gets a Buy Rating from Oppenheimer

In a report released today, Leah R. Cann from Oppenheimer maintained a Buy rating on MEI Pharma (MEIP), with a price target of $7.50. The company’s shares closed on Friday at $2.88.

Cann commented:

“Preclinical data for Voruciclib demonstrated that it synergizes with venetoclax in AML cells, and supports expanding clinical investigation of the combination in AML. This compound potentially addresses one of the largest potential markets, CLL, of any of MEI’s compounds. Updated phase Ib data for ME-401 demonstrated response rates that remain impressive in follicular lymphoma (FL) and CLL/SLL. Importantly, safety mitigation data, for continuous verses intermittent dosing, and switching between the two, led to 89% of patients remaining on therapy, and 72% having no evidence of disease progression. These results informed the global randomized study that is being launched. We currently anticipate ME-401 being filed with FDA in 2021, and could launch in 2022 with sales of $620.6 million by 2023E.”

According to, Cann is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 3.6% and a 42.8% success rate. Cann covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Constellation Pharmaceuticals Inc, Miragen Therapeutics Inc, and CytomX Therapeutics Inc.
