AngioDynamics (ANGO) Lowered to Hold at Zacks Investment Research

Zacks Investment Research lowered shares of AngioDynamics (NASDAQ:ANGO) from a buy rating to a hold rating in a research report released on Friday.

According to Zacks, “Despite trading below the broader industry in the last year, market’s solid response to Solero platform, especially within the Microwave Ablation space, is likely to boost AngioDynamics. The company has been offering a broad spectrum of products which has helped widen its commercial opportunities. AngioDynamics is also a leading player in the thrombolytic catheters space. The company boasts highly unique catheters like Uni-Fuse, SpeedLyser and Pulse Spray under the thrombus portfolio. On the flipside, the company’s Peripheral Vascular business segment witnessed a downside scenario. The company also had a high outstanding debt level at the end of the second quarter. AngioDynamics’ higher debts impose certain operating and financial restrictions which limit the company’s execution of the company’s core business strategies. The company also recalled the Acculis Microwave Tissue Ablation System recently.”
