11:23 EDTATHNBarclays says sell athenahealth as new customers get harder to find
Barclays downgraded athenahealth (ATHN) to Underweight, the firm's equivalent of a Sell rating, in a note to investors today. The company's prospects in the ambulatory care market look weak and its growth rate appears to be unsustainable, the firm contended. athenahealth provides cloud-based services and mobile applications to medical groups WHAT'S NEW: After analyzing the ambulatory enterprise market, Barclays analyst Eric Percher reported that only 12 of the 100 largest names on the list are potential targets for athenahealth. Additionally, those dozen groups are much smaller than the ones with which athenahealth made deals in 2014 and earlier this year, wrote Percher. Given his findings, the analyst expects athenahealth's revenue growth to decline going forward. In order to accelerate its growth, athenahealth needs large contract wins and those are unlikely to occur in the near-term, predicted the analyst, who downgraded the stock to Underweight from Equal Weight and lowered his price target on the name to $110 from $140. WHAT'S NOTABLE: JPMorgan analyst Michael Newshel assumed lead coverage of athenahealth today with an Overweight rating and $170 price target. In his note this morning on the space, Newshel said his firm's latest hospital CIO survey indicates there will be no slowdown in HIT investments despite the electronic health records adoption cycle maturing. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, athenahealth fell 6.6% to $152.22.
