In a report released today, Charles Duncan from Cantor Fitzgerald reiterated a Buy rating on Axsome Therapeutics Inc (AXSMResearch Report), with a price target of $25. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $12.01.

Duncan observed:

“. We reiterate our Overweight rating and raise our PT on AXSM to $25 from $16. Despite AXSM’s outperformance so far in 2019, we believe that, with multiple readouts remaining this year, including in tough-to-treat TRD and other large indications, there is potential for further upside. We recently “re- reviewed” the literature on mechanistic nuances for NMDA receptor modulator/ antagonists and caught up with management to discuss the pipeline. As a result, we revisited our projections and now include MDD, which we see as a “shorter putt” and a larger market opportunity than TRD.”
