Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Craig Bijou reiterated a Buy rating on Viewray (VRAY) today and set a price target of $13. The company’s shares closed on Tuesday at $6.33, close to its 52-week low of $5.80.
“We reiterate our OW rating and 12-month PT of $13 on VRAY. VRAY has succeeded in bringing an MRI linear accelerator (linac) to market when its larger competitors could not. Its differentiated technology has the potential to change radiation therapy long term, but VRAY’s commercial launch is only in its infancy. Positive early clinical data are driving physician interest, but the price of the system has a significant premium (~50%) to existing linacs. VRAY, like many small capital equipment companies, has a good amount of risk, but we think momentum is building.”
According to TipRanks.com, Bijou is a 3-star analyst with an average return of 4.9% and a 47.0% success rate. Bijou covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Ra Medical Systems Inc, and Integra Lifesciences.
