Tetraphase's stock hit a 52-week low of $7.20 following the phase 3 trial and have since rebounded to the $10 level. The Vetr crowd on Wednesday downgraded the company to a four star out of five rating from a prior 4.5-star rating. Meanwhile, 66 percent of the crowd's ratings are bullish.

Matthew Waterman, a member of the Vetr crowd, pointed out that since Tetraphase develops antibiotics to combat infections, the company likely controls a product "that is pretty marketable to the right consumer." He added that the stock may fit the profile of a Speculative Buy, especially when factoring in the company's market cap is "only about a third larger than their asset value."

Waterman placed a $12 price target on Tetraphase. However, his price target along with the crowd-sourced price target of $11.66 is less ambitious than some of Wall Street's pros. On November 19, analysts at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey upgraded Tetraphase to Buy from Neutral with a price target raised to $21 from a previous $12.
