Summit Therapeutics (SMMT) Gets a Hold Rating from Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer analyst Hartaj Singh maintained a Hold rating on Summit Therapeutics (SMMT) today. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $1.82, close to its 52-week low of $1.10.

Singh commented:

“Summit Therapeutics (SMMT) reported full-year 2018 results and provided a business update to investors yesterday. While the unmet need in novel antibiotic therapies remains large and fairly well understood, the road ahead for SMMT will require significant execution and education on its Discova platform and ability to address this need. In addition to early programs (SMT-571) making their way to the clinic, we anticipate awareness to increase as we approach the pivotal readout of the Phase 3 studies with ridinilazole in C. difficile recently initiated in last month. We stay neutral, but believe the comprehensive plan forward could enable the company to establish Summit’s innovative approach to novel (and differentiated) antibiotic development.”

According to, Singh is a 3-star analyst with an average return of 2.1% and a 43.9% success rate. Singh covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Strongbridge Biopharma Plc, Catabasis Pharmaceuticals, and Actinium Pharmaceuticals.
