Next up, an email from Fareed H., who writes, "We know you don't like Cell Therapeutics, but the company has to be worth something. What's your price target on the stock?"
I did some quick calculations and came up with a fair value for Cell Therapeutics in the range of 20 cents to 30 cents a share.
This valuation takes into account the lowered debt level and assumes the cancer drug pixantrone is approved (risk adjusted to 85%) and does $100 million in peak sales. I give no value to Opaxio because I don't believe that drug is approvable ever, nor did I give the company any credit for whatever else sits in the pipeline.Obviously, the value of Cell Therapeutics rises if pixantrone does better or if something else from the company's pipeline is a success. At this point, I believe assuming $100 million in pixantrone sales is a generous forecast.
