    Citron Says Ligand Has 80% Downside in Explosive Note

    Citron Research, the activist short-seller headed by Andrew Left, has dug up some nasty evidence against Ligand Pharmaceuticals Inc. (LGND). In a 23-page report, Citron accused the San Diego-based biopharmaceutical company of misleading investors, adding that its future revenue calculations are a "pipe dream." The short seller then slapped a $35 price target on the stock, implying 80% downside from the report’s publication date. After failing to successfully develop its own drugs, Ligand switched its business model to focus on collecting royalties and milestone payments from compounds and intellectual property that it licenses to other drug developers.

    Ligand Pharma stock tanks after short seller Citron calls it 'pipe dream'

    Shares of Ligand Pharmaceuticals Inc. fell more than 20% on Wednesday after famed short seller Andrew Left of Citron Research called the San Diego, Calif., drug company's pipeline a "pipe dream." Ligand "is a company designed for the 'lazy investor' whose stock price has 80% downside from its current levels once people READ," Left said in a note. Ligand has changed its strategy from developing its own drugs to acquiring candidate drugs and technologies and forming partnerships to develop them further. Although the company has generated royalties, they are mostly generated from just four approved drugs with one accounting for more than 75% of royalties, the note said. Shares of Ligand have fallen 32% in the past 12 months, compared with losses around 6% for the S&P 500 index.
