Zynerba Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:ZYNE) 


Shares of Zynerba are falling roughly 1.5% in early trading after getting hit with two major analyst downgrades. Oppenheimer downgraded Zynerba to Perform from Outperform and Jefferies downgraded ZYNE shares from Buy to Hold. On Monday, Zynerba announced that the company's cannabidiol gel failed to meet its primary endpoint (although it did meet secondary endpoints) in their phase two trial for knee osteoarthritis. The markets are continuing to ponder the potential causes of these not so great clinical trial results and what it means for Zynerba, as well as synthetic cannabinoids and alternate drug delivery methods more broadly.
