For today’s bulletin, we look at Affimed Therapeutics (AFMD). Affimed Therapeutics B.V. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. It is focused on discovering and developing cancer immunotherapies. Its product candidates are being developed in the field of immuno-oncology. The Company’s T and Abs has the ability to bring NK-cells or T-cells into proximity and trigger a signal cascade that leads to the destruction of cancer cells. Its product pipeline includes AFM13, AFM11 and AFM21. Affimed Therapeutics B.V. is headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany.

This stock has provided a roller coaster ride lately. Last month shares vaulted up a whopping 246%, only to fall back to earth days later. The big jump occurred when news broke that Roche’s Genentech subsidiary was interested in one of the firm’s products. That news–and the potential future royalties (which could approach $5 billion) for the technology use, got investors excited. The company is also guaranteed almost $100 million up front under this deal. That is a significant amount for the firm.

At that time of their most recent results–also back in August, Dr. Adi Hoess, Affimed’s CEO, noted that the company was

continuing to progress according to plan with all of our pipeline programs. For our most advanced program , AFM13, clinical development is on track and we are in ongoing discussions with clinical and regulatory experts to define future development paths. In addition, we are deepening our understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying our engagers’ activation of innate immune cells for tumor cell killing , which is important for advancement and expansion of our pipeline.

As always, we note that these pharma companies can be quite volatile. Often they are valued on “story” rather than results, and our models have a hard time placing a value/forecast on a “story.”
