NGM Biopharmaceuticals (NYSE:NGM) had its buy rating reaffirmed by analysts at Stifel Nicolaus. Stifel Nicolaus currently has a $26.00 price target on the stock. The analysts wrote, “We are reiterating our Buy rating and $26 target price after NGM reported its 2Q19 financials and business update. We remain positively biased ahead of NGM282’s (aldafermin) Phase 2 cohort 4 interim data expected in 4Q19 (non-invasive biomarkers), but more importantly, aldafermin’s top line results in early 2020 where we believe it has the potential to demonstrate a histological fibrosis benefit in NASH patients in as little as 24 weeks of treatment. The latter remains the key catalyst for the stock, in our view. In the press release, NGM indicated it had completed enrollment for cohort 4 and management also highlighted pipeline progress for some of its earlier stage programs including for NGM621, which is being developed for geographic atrophy, and NGM120 for CACS.””
