Cantor Fitzgerald restated their buy rating on shares of Intra-Cellular Therapies (NASDAQ:ITCI) in a research report sent to investors on Wednesday morning. Cantor Fitzgerald currently has a $32.00 price objective on the biopharmaceutical company’s stock.
“We reiterate our Overweight rating and price target of $32. On Wednesday, BMO Intra-Cellular reported 3Q18 financial performance ending the period with cash of $376M. Our model projects sufficient funding through several clinical milestones including NDA acceptance/approval of lumateperone for schizophrenia and P3 data in bipolar depression (two trials, now expected in 1H19). The key questions on the earnings call, which we view as resulting in a market inefficiency, centered on the data analysis and release of the P3 401 & 404 studies of luma’ in BpD. First, we don’t expect the efficacy data for the two studies to be pooled; but analyzed separately at the same time.”,” Cantor Fitzgerald’s analyst wrote.
