Supernus price target raised to $51 after physician survey at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst David Steinberg raised his price target for Supernus Pharmaceuticals to $51 from $45 after conducting a survey of high prescribing physicians to gauge their views on Trokendi XR post the recent launch in migraine prophylaxis. The surveyed clinicians anticipate treating 26.6% of their severe migraine patients with Trokendi within five years post launch, Steinberg tells investors in a research note. This suggests theoretical Trokendi migraine revenue of $960M, or roughly two times the current consensus, the analyst points out. He keeps a Buy rating on Supernus.
