Foamix Pharmaceuticals is also hopeful of getting to market and has two promising late-stage dermatological drugs in its pipeline. FMX101 targets the treatment of moderate-to-severe acne and has already had its NDA submitted. Management is also hopeful to hear some news from the FDA very soon. FMX103 targets moderate-to-severe rosacea, which has much less competition than competing acne treatments in the marketplace. It also made it through clinical three trials and an FDA decision is expected somewhere in the middle of 2020.
Cantor analyst Louise Chen reported on Foamix’s presentation at the firm's healthcare conference in early October, noting: "After listening to FOMX's presentation, we continue to look forward to the potential launches of FOMX's two late-stage products in the 2019/20 timeframe. We expect approval for the company's lead product candidate FMX101 for the treatment of moderate-to-severe acne." Chen rates FOMX an Overweight with $15 price target, which implies huge upside to the current share price of $2.80.
Research firm Cowen recently pointed out that Foamix is currently building out its sales force in anticipation of the potential launch of both dermatology candidates. Based off its price target of $30, it is effectively twice as bullish as Cantor.
Like many development-stage biotech firms, Foamix is in a precarious financial position and has accumulated a deficit above $200 million to bring these and related drugs to market. But with any positive FDA news, the share price will likely soar and open the gateway to plenty of opportunities to raise growth capital.
Returning again to TipRanks’ consensus analyst estimates, FOMX has received 3 "buy," ratings in the last three months, while the 12-month average price target lands at $17.00, or more than 500% ahead of the current share price.
