Goldman Sachs analyst Chris Shibutani initiated coverage of Innoviva ($NASDAQ:INVA) with a neutral rating and $16 price target on Wednesday. Shares of Innoviva fell as much as 2.4% to $14.37 in trading after the news. Shibutani believes that Innoviva’s shares are “predominantly” reflective of the value of the company’s royalty portfolio, which includes sales from GlaxoSmithKline’s respiratory drugs. He believes that the outlook for the company’s future royalty streams is “relatively uncontroversial.” It remains to be seen how Goldman’s initiation of coverage will affect Innoviva’s market and earnings in the long term.
The company’s fundamentals reflect its long term potential. The below analysis on INNOVIVA is made simple by the VI app. The VI Star Chart shows that INNOVIVA is strong in asset, profitability, growth, and weak in dividend.
