Duncan said:

“. We reiterate our Overweight rating and $25 PT per share on AXSM. Axsome reported 1Q19 financial performance ending the period with cash of $42.6M. Our model projects sufficient funding into 1Q21, beyond key data readouts of several ongoing P2 and P3 trials. Despite 2019 having already been eventful for the co’s pipeline and AXSM shares, we continue to perceive a market inefficiency exists on the potential for lead candidate AXS-05 to move forward clinically and commercially as a differentiated mechanism/ clinical profile in a large depression indication, almost irrespective of the outcome of the ongoing STRIDE-1 trial in TRD in 2H19.”
