Morgan Stanley cites 'biotech-type risk/reward' in Virgin Galactic initiation
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas initiated coverage of Virgin Galactic with an Overweight rating and $22 price target, telling investors that he sees a "biotech-type risk/reward" for the shares. He believes the addressable market for space tourism is niche, but supported by a range of industries. However, Jonas believes what is really likely to drive upside for the stock is what he calls "the third phase of the VG business model," namely hypersonic point-to-point, or P2P, air travel. His $22 price target factors in $10 per share in value for space tourism and $12 per share for the hypersonic opportunity, Jonas noted.
