What are Wall Street analysts saying about Aceto stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aceto stock:
  • 1. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We are pleased with the appointment of Ed Borkowski as chief financial officer, as he brings a breadth of generics knowledge and experience that will likely help Aceto’s continued transition into a human health company. We like the turnaround potential for Aceto, but believe management will need to execute for a number of quarters before generating meaningful investor interest; we maintain our BUY rating on ACET shares. Roth’s retirement has been well telegraphed in parallel to the on-boarding of William Kennally as CEO. Douglas Roth has been CFO since 2001, and was a key leader in the transformation of Aceto from specialty chemicals/API to human health. After the appointment of Bill Kennally as CEO late last year, we expected Aceto to find a thoughtful, seasoned finance leader to complement Kennally’s experience, and see Borkowski as an excellent add."
