Seeking Alpha: Accuray On Its Way To Being A "Why Bother?" Stock

Small-cap radiation oncology equipment company Accuray (NASDAQ:ARAY) continues to give investors more than enough reasons to strike it from their lists and move on. I believe that the clinical evidence continues to support stereotactic body radiation as a very effective method of treating certain difficult cancers and that Accuray's CyberKnife is a very good SBRT system. I also believe that Accuray need only establish a mid-teens market share in the radiation oncology market with its specialized Tomo and CyberKnife systems for the stock to do well.

The problem is that Accuray just isn't on a clear path to growth at this point. While the financial results in the third quarter weren't awful, another sizable miss with orders puts near-term revenue growth at risk and reignites concerns as to whether Accuray really can keep its foot in the door with radiation oncologists. These shares are still priced to potentially produce above-average returns, but the inability to establish a firm, sustained trajectory of orders is a major worry and sufficient cause, at least in my mind, to consider moving on to other ideas.
