Clive Maund,

"Algernon Pharmaceuticals Inc. stock has now arrived at what looks like a long-term cyclical low at the support at its late 2019 lows, which is a good point for it to turn, and that's what it looks like it is in the process of doing. . .the fundamentals of the company are believed to be positive. The conclusion is that Algernon is rated an attractive Speculative Buy here."

Clive Maund,

"Algernon Pharmaceuticals Inc. has some good things going on. The stock looks like it is at or close to a cyclical low, especially as volume has built up dramatically over the past month in a manner that is characteristic of a bottom, with upside volume kicking in in recent days. . .we could soon see some good gains in this stock."

"Algernon Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s Ifenprodil is in a Phase 2a trial in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis/chronic cough. . .the company expects to complete patient enrollment of the study by 2021E, with results anticipated in Q2/22. . .Algernon is a Phase 2-stage drug development company, yet it has a market cap of CA$7M. We believe its risk/reward profile is attractive."

Algernon Pharmaceuticals will now pursue Ifenprodil in chronic cough based on encouraging recent study results in a Phase 2 trial.

André Uddin, Research Capital Corporation

Algernon Pharmaceuticals Inc. has decided to terminate the development of Ifenprodil for COVID-19. . .we agree with management that the risk-benefit profile of the COVID-19 program does not justify its continuation; we view the company's move as wise. . .Algernon is switching focus to the idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis/chronic cough indication."

Sam Riches, Weekend Dispensary

"Algernon Pharmaceuticals Inc. says it received positive feedback from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding its planned Phase 1 clinical trial, which is set to begin later this year with the U.K.-based Hammersmith Medicines Research. . .Algernon believes its approach could potentially lead to a breakthrough therapy designation from the FDA, which enables priority review and can fast track the clinical trial process."
