What are Wall Street 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. " (12/18/2018) 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "On 10/3/18, ATRC preannounced 3Q18 revenue that was above consensus as 3Q18 revenue accelerated to 18.6% from 13.5% in 2Q18. We note that ATRC had an easy comp due to last year’s hurricanes; management estimates revenue growth was ~16% adjusting for this. Management raised its 2018 revenue guidance but lowered its adjusted EBITDA guidance. Excluding certain items, gross margin declined Y/Y by 40 bps while operating margin improved Y/Y by 360 bps. We believe recent society guidelines, new products, and surgeon training activities should drive strong growth in the near-term and that CONVERGE could be a significant longer- term tailwind and we reiterate our Buy rating."
