Syros Pharmaceuticals (SYRS) Receives a Hold from H.C. Wainwright

By Jason Carr

H.C. Wainwright analyst Andrew Fein maintained a Hold rating on Syros Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: SYRS) today and set a price target of $10. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $11.57.

Fein noted:

“Our price target of $10/share ($3.38 from tamibarotene + $2.35 from platform + $3.83 in cash) is based on a discounted cash flow analysis (2018-2027) using a 12% discount rate and 1% growth rate, in line with the expected discount and growth parameters of a development-stage oncology company. Risks to our investment thesis and target price include: (1) failure in clinical studies; (2) failure to secure regulatory approval; and (3) smaller than anticipated commercial opportunity due to market size, competition, and pricing.”

According to, Fein is a 3-star analyst with an average return of 2.3% and a 46.3% success rate. Fein covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Proteostasis Therapeutics Inc, Strongbridge Biopharma Plc, and Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals.

The word on The Street in general, suggests a Moderate Buy analyst consensus rating for Syros Pharmaceuticals with a $18 average price target.
