  • Dendreon had its “neutral” rating reaffirmed by analysts at Zacks. They now have a $1.50 price target on the stock. Zacks‘ analyst wrote, “The news of a probable default by Dendreon was disappointing and pretty much eclipsed second quarter results. Although Dendreon has sufficient cash to meet its ordinary course obligations for at least the next twelve months, the company will surely not be able to repay or refinance its debt due in 2016. Dendreon reported a net loss of $0.10 in the second quarter of 2014, narrower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.18 and the year-ago loss of $0.45. Total revenue in the reported quarter was up 12.1% year over year to $82.2 million and beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $74 million. The departure of the company’s CEO further increases the uncertainty surrounding Dendreon. We maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.”
