Jefferies analyst Chris Howerton assumes coverage on Viridian Therapeutic (NASDAQ: VRDN) with a Buy rating and a price target of $28.00 (from $18.00).

The analyst commented, "Viridian (formerly miRagen) has a quick go-to-market strategy to be the 2nd IGF-1R (leadasset) approved in the $3B+ Thyroid Eye Disease market. The lead asset is clinically de-risked by the same validated MoA as TEPEZZA and could capture ~30% of the market.With solid execution and FDA cooperation, we think a 2025 launch is possible. We seefurther upside if VRDN can ‘rinse and repeat’ this strategy in more indications. Assumecoverage at Buy with a $28 PT."
