Needham analyst Serge Belanger initiated coverage of Zynerba with a Buy rating and $18 price target. The analyst cites the potential of the company's late-stage topical CBD gel product candidate Zygel building a "presence" in the growing CBD therapeutic segment while targeting difficult-to-treat neuropsychiatric conditions and rare epilepsy disorders. Belanger notes that Zygel has so far yielded a positive phase 2 result in patients with Fragile X Syndrome as it improved the patients' "key neuro-behavioral symptoms". The analyst further contends that the current valuation of Zynebra does not fully account for the potential of Zygel becoming a part of the developing therapeutic CBD landscape and believes that the stock offers a "compelling" risk/reward ahead of several key data readouts expected in the first half of 2020.

Needham analyst Serge Belanger downgraded Zynerba to Hold from Buy. The analyst cites the company missing its primary and secondary endpoints in the pivotal phase 3 CONNECT-FX trial, as he looks ahead to its upcoming meeting with FDA to determine whether the FXS program can advance towards approval without an additional clinical trial that could take up to 2 years to report results. Belanger adds that his Hold rating reflects the uncertainty regarding the proposed path forward of the program.
