Knight TherapeuticsInvestors looking for a solid opportunity in life sciences need look no further than Knight Therapeutics (Knight Therapeutics Stock Quote, Chart, News: TSX:GUD), says Beacon Securities analyst David Kideckel.

In a research report to clients today, Kideckel initiated coverage of KNight Therapeutics with a “Buy” rating and a one-year price target of $10.70, implying a return of 33.1 per cent at the time of publication.
