BMO ups SAGE target to $68 on accelerated depression program
BMO Capital analyst Gary Nachman raised his price target for SAGE Therapeutics to $68 from $57 after the company announced that the ongoing trials for SAGE-547 in postpartum depression will be expanded to qualify as Phase 3, and, if positive, will be sufficient for a new drug application submission. This accelerates the program by about a year, and helps bring forward a key value driver for SAGE, Nachman tells investors in a research note. He raised his estimates for SAGE-547 in postpartum depression by $25M-$150M through 2027. The analyst now expects $350M in sales in 2027. Nachman reiterates an Outperform rating on SAGE, which closed yesterday up $3.86 to $55.68.
