By Ryan Adsit

Cantor Fitzgerald analyst William Tanner reiterated a Buy rating on Supernus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: SUPN) yesterday and set a price target of $56. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $48.85.

Tanner noted:

“: We reiterate our Overweight rating and $56 PT for SUPN stock. We believe the next 12-18 months will be an important period as the company’s pipeline development prowess is measured by pivotal data from the SPN-810 and SPN-812 clinical programs. We believe either program embodies commercial potential that could match or exceed combined revenues for Trokendi XR and Oxtellar XR. Consequently, although some investors may probe/clamor for evidence of growth through acquisition, we think successful development of either program will be the most important near-to-intermediate-term drivers of SUPN share value.”
