In a report released today, Michael Matson from Needham reiterated a Buy rating on Globus Medical (GMED), with a price target of $65. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $39.84, close to its 52-week low of $38.01.
“After the close on 1/8/19, GMED preannounced 4Q18 revenue that was above consensus. GMED also provided initial 2019 revenue guidance that was above consensus and non-GAAP EPS guidance that was a penny below consensus. GMED’s Emerging Technologies sales grew 35% despite lapping the 4Q17 robotics launch while its Spine Products business growth improved to 9% in 4Q18 from 7% in 3Q18 driven by robotics implant pull-through and new sales rep hires. We believe the 2019 revenue guidance could prove conservative given continued growth in robot unit sales, increasing robotics implant pull-through, and the trauma implant launch and we reiterate our Buy rating.”
According to TipRanks.com, Matson is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 9.5% and a 56.0% success rate. Matson covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Boston Scientific Corp, Cardiovascular Systems, and Zimmer Biomet Holdings.
