  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Outlook Remains The Same As the company preannounced Q4 revenue and provided FY18 revenue expectations on January 10th , the company’s formal earnings call was fairly straightforward without surprises. The messaging was largely consistent with what we learned from the company’s JPM conference presentation though we now may expect an update on progress with the FDA on the LRTI test as early as the Q1 call. Overall, we remain very positive on the technology and the total opportunity but feel the company needs to consistently hit estimates through the course of the year for the Street to regain comfort with the model. We maintain our Neutral rating.   Modestly tweaking our estimates for gross margin. Our revenue estimates are unchanged but we have increased our gross margin estimates to reflect better trends in Q4. Our full year FY18 revenue estimate is $25M and we assume roughly 2/3 of revenue will be recognized in the 2H. For Q1, we model a slight uptick sequentially from Q4 revenue of $2.12M to $3.2M; of note, this estimate also seems to be lower than other estimates on the Street of $4-5M. Given the timing of hospital purchasing, we prefer to have a conservative bias in the start of the year.   Valuation: Shares are Neutral rated based on our DCF analysis. Risks follow." (2/18/2018)
