Northland Securities reaffirmed their buy rating on shares of Polarityte (NASDAQ:PTE) in a report published on Monday morning. Northland Securities currently has a $50.00 price objective on the stock.

“We anticipate shares of PTE to be up significantly today based upon the FDA’s final classification relating the July 2018 inspection of its Salt Lake City manufacturing/processing facility, with the FDA not prepared to take any further actions. We see this as removing a MAJOR bear case overhang to PTE shares. We also believe this event serves as a proxy that further validates SkiinTE’s 361 HCT/P status.”,” Northland Securities’ analyst commented.
