H.C. Wainwright analyst Ram Selvaraju reiterated a Buy rating on ObsEva SA (NASDAQ: OBSV) today and set a price target of $30. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $15.44.

Selvaraju noted:

“We note that this approval came on schedule, in-line with our expectations, and that the market authorization of the first GnRH receptor antagonist should bode well for ObsEva’s lead candidate, linzagolix, which is also a member of this compound class and which is undergoing late-stage clinical testing for treatment of endometriosis and uterine fibroids. In the wake of the elagolix product approval, we reiterate our Buy rating and 12-month price target of $30.00 per share on OBSV. Orilissa pricing a pleasant surprise. We note that ObsEva management had previously guided towards the approximate cost of GnRH receptor antagonist therapy at roughly $15 per day—about $450 per month—and that the announced monthly cost of Orilissa at $845 appears to be comfortably above this level.”
