Analysts’ Recent Ratings Updates for Orthopediatrics (KIDS)

Orthopediatrics (NASDAQ: KIDS) has recently received a number of price target changes and ratings updates:

  • 1/2/2019 – Orthopediatrics had its price target raised by analysts at BTIG Research to $37.00. They now have a “buy” rating on the stock. They wrote, “PT to $37 We are raising our KIDS PT to $37 (Street high) from $35 as we expect shares to move progressively higher over FY19. KIDS ended FY18 with the launch of 2 new products and a successful capital raise that saw needed liquidity added to the stock. We believe the incremental net proceeds, ~$43.7M, raised from the stock offering will allow KIDS to enter FY19 with ample capital to accelerate instrument investments and fund additional R&D to keep the product pipeline full. As KIDS adds to its instrument set levels, distributors are able to seek incremental new business and historically KIDS has seen a positive return of $1.20 to $1.50 for each dollar invested in instrumentation.””
