BCRX Stock Receives New Price Target

An analyst from Barclays just upgraded Biocryst pharmaceuticals, inc. (BCRX) stock, as they envision a 1.89% upside for BCRX shares. BCRX stock has fallen nearly -0.92% since this price target was released.

How Impactful Might this be for the BCRX Stock?

This upgrade should be beneficial for Biocryst pharmaceuticals, inc. as their yearly price action has not been favorable for investors. The BCRX stock has fallen from its 52-week high of $19.99 to its current price of $14.05 and may have some room to bounce back

BCRX's poor recent performance has presented a great opportunity for investors, as their financial ratios are now very attractive. These ratios could have influenced the analyst from Barclays to make their decision to upgrade the BCRX stock.

The Barclays analyst is forecasting a “better risk/reward ratio” for the BCRX stock and has raised their price target to $14. If this prediction comes to fruition, it could represent more than just a 1.89% upside, as it could encourage further growth in the BCRX stock.

BCRX's Recent Upgrade had no effect on their Social Sentiment

Here are the latest analytics from the BCRX Stocktwits and BCRX Twitter communities (over the last 24hrs), respectively:

  • 31 Posts (down -90.28%)
  • 162 Likes (down -88.89%)
  • 95,649 Impressions (down -81.66%)

  • 17 Tweets (down -78.21%)
  • 229 Likes (up 112.04%)
  • 138.38k Impressions (down -82.3%)

As we can see, the recent Barclays analyst upgrade had a similar effect on the social sentiment within both the BCRX Stocktwits and BCRX Twitter communities. This is especially true when we look at the posting volumes and impressions within the BCRX StockTwits and Twitter communities. These metrics are the most influential over a stock's social sentiment and it is not good to see them decrease by such a large amount.
