NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Cantor Fitzgerald lowered its price target on Radius Health (RDUS) - Get Report stock to $70 from $85 and maintained its "buy" rating.

The Waltham, MA-based biopharmaceutical company is focused on developing therapeutics for patients with osteoporosis and other serious endocrine-mediated diseases.

The new price target reflects lower biotechnology valuations in the current market environment.

The company's Food and Drug Administration New Drug Application for its osteoporosis drug abaloparatide-SC is expected by the end of this quarter, which the firm believes is overhanging the shares.

Finding a partner for the abaloparatide-SC drug in Europe will also remove an overhang on the shares, Cantor Fitzgerald added.
