Optibiotix: Good News - the shares are a buy at up to 40p

I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

OptiBiotix Health (OPTI) has announced completion of clinical studies on its capsular food supplement to reduce cholesterol with no compliance or safety concerns raised. This is good news.

The 50 volunteer study commenced at the start of January and has completed as planned, allowing sample testing and data analysis to take place and reporting in September.

On re-recommending the shares at a 39p offer price a month ago we noted that the company was working in a very topical space and its emphasising that “as our development programmes progress and OptiBiotix is able to demonstrate product safety and efficacy, we anticipate increasing partner interest”. Indeed this has already been evident since our re-recommendation with two deals announced.

Having been hindered by a stock overhang, the shares had slipped; falling below 33p earlier this month. However, the latest news has further boosted the recovery since – with the shares now back up to around the 39p re-recommendation price.

We continue to view this as an unexpected opportunity at this stage and to target 47p to sell PDQ as the company continues to announce progress in its highly topical space. 

At up to 40p the shares are a buy as we are confident that there will be more news showing a clear path to monetising this technology very soon.
