Mesoblast (NASDAQ:MESO) has been assigned a $20.00 price target by analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday. The firm presently has a “buy” rating on the stock. Cantor Fitzgerald’s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 236.13% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “Heart Failure Holds Focus. In C1Q18, we expect top-line results of the Phase 2b, 159-patient, end-stage heart failure and LVAD study. We anticipate that disclosure of the top-line data on patient functional status (LVAD weaning) will remain limited until overall survival results (up to 12 months) become available. A successful outcome could accelerate the regulatory path of the overall cardiac program, in our view, especially considering recently awarded RMAT designation for the LVAD program.””
