Neuronetics (STIM) Receives “Buy” Rating from BTIG Research

BTIG Research reiterated their buy rating on shares of Neuronetics (NASDAQ:STIM) in a research note published on Wednesday morning. BTIG Research currently has a $33.00 target price on the stock.

“$33 PT Q3 revenue topped our estimate on both system sales and treatment sessions. Based on a number of conversations with investors, we sensed there was some concern heading into Q3 on what mix might look like (capital vs. procedure sales) and the overall sequential ramp but we feel results in the quarter confirm our view that sales expansion continues to bear fruit. On that initiative, mgmt added 4 more territories in Q3, fairly consistent with our expectations. Additionally, progress towards Japan reimbursement remains on-track with a decision on reimbursement expected in December and formal commencement in March. Until Japan commercialization begins, mgmt highlighted active preparation efforts as well as the strong level of interest among treating docs. Overall, Q3 results were strong, in our view.”,” BTIG Research’s analyst wrote.
