Following the release of Nektar Therapeutics’ (NASDAQ: NKTR) first-quarter results, Aegis Capital reiterated its ‘Buy’ rating and price target of $27 on shares of the company’s stock. Though Nektar’s first-quarter revenue of $24.7 million fell short of the consensus of $30.9 million, the Aegis analyst noted the company’s multiple product candidates awaiting approval and potential upcoming product launches as the area of focus. Additionally, Nektar recently reported positive top-line data for the phase 3 Summit-07 trial evaluating NKTR-181 in chronic lower back pain. Readout for the ongoing pivotal trial is anticipated in mid-summer 2017.
