Canaccord Genuity restated their buy rating on shares of Intersect ENT (NASDAQ:XENT) in a report released on Monday. They currently have a $36.00 price target on the medical equipment provider’s stock.

“We reiterate our BUY rating on Intersect following the earlier than expected FDA approval of Sinuva. Specifically, Intersect announced this morning that Sinuva was approved by the FDA with an indication for the treatment of nasal polyps. FDA approval came nearly a month ahead of management guidance and the FDA PDUFA date of January 7, 2018. We previously published a deep dive into the Sinuva product and market opportunity (link here). In sum, the clean approval removes FDA/regulatory overhang headed into YE/17 and positions the company with another meaningful growth driver in 2018 and beyond as Sinuva expands the market opportunity to include stand- alone treatment in the office setting. BUY.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
