In a report issued on October 8, Derek Archila from Stifel Nicolaus maintained a Buy rating on Argenx Se (NASDAQ: ARGX), with a price target of $139. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $69.13.

Archila said:

“We continue to like the stock ahead of the full ITP dataset expected at the Hematology (ASH) meeting in December, which we believe will address the bleeding rates controversy, and new data from ARGX-110’s Phase 1 study in AML, a program which has been gaining investor interest, which we don’t think is factored into Street models. We continue to view ARGX as the first-mover in the emerging anti-FcRn class which we believe could become a ~$20 billion category (FcRn deep dive report).”
