Fortress Biotech's Stock Price Up 41.3% Since Quarterly Report, but Down 81.3% Year-over-Year

Roth MKM's Scott Henry lowered their price target on Fortress Biotech (NASDAQ: FBIO) by 50% from $30 to $15 on 2023/11/29. The analyst maintained their Strong Buy rating on the stock.

Having had about two weeks to digest Fortress Biotech's Q3 2023 earnings report, released on 2023/11/14, Henry cut their price target. The company's quarterly results met expectations, and its Journey dermatology unit is gaining significance as a "valuable asset," the analyst told investors.

Henry said that Fortress Biotech's pipeline is still active and expects "two potential filings" within the next six months but that the stock's current valuation "considers only a few anticipated future successes."

The consensus forecast among analysts is that FBIO's upcoming year will deliver earnings per share (EPS) of $8.31. If the analysts are right, FBIO's next yearly EPS will be up by 92.7% on a year-over-year basis.

Since FBIO's latest quarterly report on 2023/11/15, the stock price is up 41.3%. Year-over-year, the stock is down 81.3%. During that period, FBIO is trailing the S&P 500, which is down 14.8%.

Roth MKM analyst Scott Henry is ranked by WallStreetZen in the bottom 11% out of 4,414 Wall Street analysts, with an average return of -12% and a 25.6% win rate. They specialize in the Healthcare sector.
