“. Post a solid quarter of execution, we are reiterating our OW rating and 12-month price target of $27 for SPRO shares. As the company advances its pipeline toward commercialization, we think upward earnings revisions and multiple expansion to levels not reflected in FactSet consensus expectations will drive SPRO’s stock higher. We also like the stock ahead of what we expect to be multiple positive data readouts for the rest of 2018+.”
