Is the Bullish Sentiment on Fulcrum Therapeutics (FULC) Justified?

Fulcrum Therapeutics may be overvalued with strong growth indicators, but the 9 analysts following the company on average give it a buy rating. The analysts have set target prices ranging from $8 to $35 per share, for an average of $21.89. At today's price of $13.03, Fulcrum Therapeutics is trading -40.48% away from its average target price, suggesting there is an analyst consensus of strong upside potential.

Fulcrum Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, focuses on developing products for improving the lives of patients with genetically defined diseases in the areas of high unmet medical need in the United States. Based in Cambridge, MA, the small-cap Healthcare company has 104 full time employees. Fulcrum Therapeutics has not offered a dividend during the last year.

Fulcrum Therapeutics does not have a meaningful trailing P/E ratio since its earnings per share are negative. Its forward EPS guidance is negative too, at -2.11. The average P/E ratio for the Healthcare sector is 13.21. The market is undervaluing Fulcrum Therapeutics in terms of its equity because its P/B ratio is 3.1.

If analysts are giving the the company a decent rating despite its hefty price point, it could be related to its strong cash flows. They might also believe Fulcrum Therapeutics's positive margin growth trend will continue.
