NuVasive (NASDAQ:NUVA) had its outperform rating reissued by analysts at Wells Fargo & Company. They currently have a $65.00 target price on the stock, down from their previous target price of $81.00.

NuVasive (NASDAQ:NUVA) had its sell rating reissued by analysts at Needham & Company LLC. The analysts wrote, “NUVA’s 3Q17 revenue missed, although EPS beat consensus. More importantly, management lowered its 2017 guidance. Reported revenue growth slowed to 3% in 3Q17 from 5% in 2Q17 as the US spine market slowed and NUVA’s biologics continued its decline. Revenue growth was ~6% adjusting for the unexpected impact of the hurricanes (~$5M) and the expected impact of one less selling day (~$3M). NUVA’s operating margin beat consensus and increased 150 bps Y/Y. Management’s updated 2017 guidance implies flat Y/Y revenue in 4Q17. Even if we assume that guidance for no growth in 4Q17 is conservative, it makes NUVA’s mid- single digit revenue growth target for 2018 look challenging.””
