Aerovate Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing treatments for cardiopulmonary diseases, saw its shares open up at $19.30 on Friday. With a 1-year low of $10.52 and a 1-year high of $30.79, the firm has built a market capitalization of $471.11 million. It boasts an unusual ratio with price-to-earnings standing at -9.15 and a beta of 0.47.
Despite Aerovate’s unique numbers this past week, other industry players have taken notice in both their price outlooks and stock assessments. Among them is Guggenheim who, on February 28th, issued an initial “buy” rating with a $36.00 target price; BTIG Research followed suit on December 6th raising Aerovate from neutral to buy status and reaching a $27 target price.
CEO Timothy P. Noyes sold 15,000 shares of the Aerovate stock worth $406,050 in transactions dated January 3rd while insider Benjamin T Dake also traded upwards of ten thousand shares worth over $267k last week.
Insiders reportedly sold more than seventy-five thousand shares totalling almost two million dollars in value last quarter alone whilst currently retaining nearly twenty percent ownership in the company’s shares.
As debates continue on how well Aerovate will perform this year and beyond due to recent pricing jumps and insider trading trends along with market uncertainties prompted by Covid-19-induced economic shocks worldwide, investing in the previously mentioned stock should be approached with caution given industry fluctuations that may occur within the near future as markets continue to strive towards stability post-pandemic lockdown periods ahead globally.
