Viking Therapeutics price target raised to $28 from $14 at Maxim
Maxim analyst Jason McCarthy raised his price target on Viking Therapeutics to $28 and kept his Buy rating after the company's positive top-line 12-week P2 data announcement for VK2809. The analyst says he is also lowering the "risk in his model" around the program to 30% from 50%, while also looking ahead to the phase 2B study in biopsy-proven NASH and the expected meeting with regulators to discuss the findings in the first half of 2019.

Viking Therapeutics price target raised to $24 from $13 at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Scott Henry maintained a Buy rating on Viking Therapeutics and raised his price target to $24 from $13 after the company reported positive phase 2 data for VK2809 for the treatment of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. In a research note to investors, Henry says key takeaways from the data release include that VK2809 achieved statistical significance versus placebo for both LDL reduction and liver fat reduction, the data was competitive with other compounds, and the next step is likely an FDA meeting in early 2019.

Viking Therapeutics price target raised to $28 from $14 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Edward Nash raised his price target on Viking Therapeutics to $28 and kept his Buy rating after its "promising" VK2809 phase 2 study results showing "superior % liver fat reduction" with an "encouraging" safety profile. The analyst expects the company to move forward with a Phase II/III study after its discussions with the FDA in early 2019.

H.C. Wainwright points out Viking is years behind Madrigal, Genfit
In interpreting and reacting to Viking Therapeutics' (VKTX) Phase II VK2809 data yesterday, the market has gotten ahead of itself, especially relative to Madrigal Pharmaceuticals (MDGL) and Genfit (GNFTF), H.C. Wainwright analyst Ed Arce tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees "several significant limitations" of the Viking study, including a small sample size that he says limits the reliability of results, the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease patient population, which he notes is not the same as nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, its LDL reductions being similar to other agents, and the analyst's belief that safety questions remain. Further, he reminds investors that Viking is still, "at best," three-to-four years behind Genfit and Madrigal. The VK2809 efficacy data look strong, but evaluating it by other compounds is comparing apples to oranges, Arce contends. The analyst continues to believe that Genfit's market valuation is "substantially below" its intrinsic value.
