BTIG upgraded DexCom (NASDAQ: DXCM) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $92. Analyst Sean Lavin sees an attractive entry.

"When the stock had hit the mid $90s we felt risk reward was balanced with upside to be driven by revenue beats and risk to be around expense control and the 670G launch. In the mid $70s we feel there is more upside on revenue than downside on expenses and that a reasonable 670G launch is baked in with the approval behind us. That approval plus investors being spooked by results in high-valuation Medtech names has provided another attractive entry point. We do not believe the cath lab market which seems to have been weak this summer is a good proxy for DXCM’s results. We do not believe anything fundamental has changed in the last month, which is why we are using our old $92 price target," said the analyst.
