Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Obalon Therapeutics stock:
  • 1. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We are tweaking our models to reflect our best interpretation" of company commentary. FY19 guidance will be provided on the Q4 call sometime in February. Overall, our fundamental concerns on the story remain." (1/3/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Obalon Therapeutics, Inc. is a medical device company. It focused on developing and commercializing medical devices to treat obese and overweight. The company's product consists of Obalon balloon system, the first swallowable, gas-filled intragastric balloon designed to provide progressive and sustained weight loss in obese patients. Obalon Therapeutics, Inc. is based in San Diego, California. " (11/14/2018)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "2Q18 results came in light. Though reordering trends were strong in the quarter (+220% sequentially), new accounts sold came in below our expectations. As the company remains in the early innings of its commercial ramp, it appears this quarter that there continues to be refinement of the sales pitch and go-to-market strategy. Going forward, much of the sales focus will be on more productive accounts with OBLN establishing new clinical programs to assist with imaging acquisition – the biggest barrier to initial uptake. We trim our FY18 revenue estimates once again as we think it will take more time for some of these initiatives to bear fruit. In thinking about shares, we think the upcoming investor call (perhaps early September) to more explicitly discuss the marketing strategy and/or PMA approval of the Navigator system in 1H19 may lift sentiment."
