Insulet Corp Gets a Buy Rating from Northland Securities

In a report released today, Suraj Kalia from Northland Securities assigned a Buy rating to Insulet Corp (NASDAQ: PODD), with a price target of $100. The company’s shares opened today at $85.81.

Kalia said:

“We believe that despite the noise surrounding the tslim x2 artificial pancreas pump and Medtronic’s 670G, Insulet should report a strong Q2 number. In addition, the 2nd half of FY18 brings in a go-direct strategy in Europe, allowing a recapture of the transfer margins to Ypsomed, and a step up in top line sales.”

According to TipRanks.com, Kalia is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 14.3% and a 61.4% success rate. Kalia covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as Tactile Systems Technology, Obalon Therapeutics Inc, and Apollo Endosurgery Inc.

The word on The Street in general, suggests a Moderate Buy analyst consensus rating for Insulet Corp with a $103 average price target, which is a 20.0% upside from current levels. In a report issued on July 10, BMO Capital also maintained a Buy rating on the stock with a $115 price target.
