" (5/7/2019)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We view the Warning Letter lift as a bullish catalyst for the stock and the company, with the enormous potential growth engine that is the US market now fully accessible to STAA. While the near term now looks even brighter, we think the firm’s longer-term potential, both with presbyopia (a ~1.5M-patient annual TAM by company estimates) and with full entry into the US market (the second-largest refractive market in the world) acting as major growth drivers – drivers we expect to support sustained, double- digit organic growth into the next decade and beyond. We reiterate our BUY rating and increase our price target to $32 (9.1x EV/sales on 2020E)." (6/20/2018)
