Currently there are 7 analysts that rate Cyberonics a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Cyberonics as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.
