Goldman Sachs analyst Salveen Richter upgraded Allogene (NASDAQ: ALLO) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $32.00 (from $9.00).

The analyst comments "We upgrade ALLO from Neutral to Buy ahead of key inflection points as we anticipate a period of execution on lead allogeneic CAR T programs ALLO-501A (anti-CD-19) in relapsed/refractory large B cell lymphoma (GSe peak US sales of $1.4bn in 2035), where FDA alignment on and initiation of the pivotal trials in mid-22 pave a path toward approval, and ALLO-715 (anti-BCMA) in R/R multiple myeloma (GSe peak global sales of $3.7bn in 2035), where clarity on the forward path is expected by YE22 per longer-term follow-up monotherapy data and the optimization levers of consolidation dosing, combinatorial approach with SWTX's nirogacestat, and TurboCAR technology. On the former, we note a best-in-class profile and on the latter, an in-line profile with BMY/TSVT's Abecma (with potential for improvements per modifications) coupled with manufacturing advantages would bode well for commercial utilization in the context of supply/demand dynamics, per our KOL conversations. Separately, we note first data from the Ph1 ALLO-316 TRAVERSE study in renal cell carcinoma in 2023 could unlock the solid tumor vertical."
