Strongbridge Biopharma (Nasdaq:SBBP)

  • 3 buy ratings in last three months
  • Average analyst price target indicates 93% upside potential
  • Biopharma Strongbridge now has two commercial rare disease assets, Keveyis (PPP) and Macrilen (AGHD). Meanwhile, its pipeline product Recorlev comes close behind in pivotal Phase 3 studies for Cushing’s disease. This is a complex condition that can happen when stress hormone cortisol levels are too high.

    “The ability of the highly focused, strategic and experienced management team to scale the Keveyis and Macrilen revenues while preparing for Recorlev launch by late 2019E/early 2020E (we assume 2020E) is key to significantly re-rating the company. We believe that management is poised to execute on this strategy and we are bullish on the story” states top Oppenheimer analyst Hartaj Singh.

    His buy rating comes with a $12 price target (58% upside potential).

    Bear in mind that Singh is one of the Top 200 analysts on TipRanks right now. He scores a 61% success rate and 29.2% average return on his buy-sell stock recommendations.
