Will its stock price improve in the long term? Likely
By March 31, 2019, InMed cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $20.4 million which is enough to finance operations in 2019 as they are in last stages of testing first product for treatment of Epidermolysis Bullosa.
InMed has already selected a contract manufacturing organization (CMO) to produce the drug for it’s initial clinical testing which strengthened confidence in the trial timeline. Results are expected to be released in first half of 2020 as enrollment is expected to occur quickly.
According to research firm GlobalData, glaucoma treatment market is expected to exceed $3 billion by 2023 so InMed’s IN-085 could prove to be a game-changer.
For these reasons, we think InMed, at or near its current price of $0.20 a share, can be good investment opportunity—though as earnings increase with sales and expenses reduced then an opportunity can appear.
