Sydney, June 8, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Wilsons maintain a BUY rating and $1.66 price target. Anatara's (ASX:ANR) recent stock underperformance has simply reflected a slow quarter for news in the lead-up to a significant inflection point in the 2H. Behind the scenes, Zoetis' evaluation work with Detach is ongoing and we are comfortable that Anatara has done the work in supporting that. If Zoetis does exercise its option to license Detach, then we see potential valuation upside to $2.50 per share.

Zoetis is already calling out a negative impact on their medicated feed additive sales just three months into the Veterinary Feed Directive rules coming into force, which switched key swine and cattle products from over-the-counter to prescription only. Zoetis has led the industry on the "antibiotic stewardship" issue and we think it has genuine intentions towards making Detach available to producers.
