HealthGate Data Corp. got a lukewarm greeting in its debut Wednesday as investors seemed to be betting that the company's medical and health information Web sites aren't likely to reap returns as high as sites that sell medical products. The Burlington, Mass.-based company's stock (ticker symbol: HGAT) closed up just 75 cents on Nasdaq at $11.75, after rising early as high as $15.50.
