RA Capital Management Slashes Alcobra Ltd (ADHD) Position After FDA Clinical Hold

Peter Kolchinsky‘s RA Capital Management has slashed its position in Alcobra Ltd (NASDAQ:ADHD) to just under 1.31 million shares according to a new 13G filing with the SEC. The position now amounts to 4.7% of the stock’s float and is well down from the more than 3.03 million Alcobra shares which RA Capital owned as of June 30.

The filing, which has a date of event of October 13, comes not long after Alcobra Ltd (NASDAQ:ADHD) shares plummeted by 50% following the FDA placing a full clinical hold on its phase III trial of MDX after it uncovered an adverse neurological impact from the ADHD treatment during a pre-clinical trial. Cantor Fitzgerald seemed positive at first that the hold could be removed, citing its pre-clinical nature, as opposed to clinical, but later downgraded the stock to ‘Hold’ and slashed its price target on it to $2. Three other analyst firms also downgraded the stock following the news.
