What are analysts saying about AtriCure stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AtriCure stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AtriCure, Inc. is a medical device company focused on developing, manufacturing and selling innovative surgical devices to create precise lesions, or scars, in soft tissues. Medical journals have described the adoption by leading cardiothoracic surgeons of the AtriCure, Inc. bipolar ablation system as a standard treatment alternative during open-heart surgical procedures to safely, rapidly and reliably create lesions in cardiac, or heart, tissue to block the abnormal electrical impulses that cause atrial fibrillation, a quivering of the upper chambers of the heart. " (10/2/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "ATRC’s 2Q17 revenue, EBITDA, and EPS beat consensus and management raised its 2017 revenue guidance. Worldwide Open-Heart Ablation growth improved to 11% from 10% in 1Q17 and US Open-Heart Ablation growth improved to 14% from 12% in 1Q17. We think that the accelerating Open-Heart growth should help to reduce concerns that this business is in a permanent slowdown and we think this shows that the new guidelines for ablation in concomitant open-heart procedures are driving stronger growth in this business. ATRC shares remain at a large discount to peers (2017E EV/sales of 4.4x vs. small/mid-cap growth peers at a median of 7.1x) and we reiterate our Buy rating." (7/28/2017)
