Medtech Market Optimism – A Conversation with J.P. Morgan’s Lead Healthcare Analyst

PTV RELEASES NEW TOP TALKS PODCAST FEATURING J.P. MORGAN MANAGING DIRECTOR MICHAEL WEINSTEIN

Austin, Texas – October 21, 2015 – We are excited to announce the release of the next podcast in our TOP Talks series. The podcast features PTV Managing Director Rick Anderson and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Managing Director Michael Weinstein as they discuss recent trends in the medtech market and what it means for investors and entrepreneurs.   

When asked to comment on the recent dislocation in the markets, Weinstein had good news for investors. “You have to view it as opportunity, because if you’re investing…ultimately it comes down to the individual company and the space, and you saying, ‘Ok, I’m absolutely convinced this is an area worth investing in because I think that there’s a long runway of growth.’  And I think that’s certainly true in healthcare and it’s very true in medtech, where there are a lot of very interesting opportunities in different disease states and different categories where technology can make the difference. I’m seeing those opportunities every day – much more so today, and I’m much more optimistic today than I would have been just a few years ago.”

Weinstein continues on to discuss the opportunities he is seeing in the health and medtech markets, and speaks directly to entrepreneurs and startup CEOs to offer advice and insight on being successful post-IPO in today’s markets.
