Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acadia Healthcare stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We rate ACHC Neutral primarily to reflect our view of the uncertainty associated with the recovery of its U.K. business, which accounts for 40% of the company’s revenue. $39 price target is based on comparable-company analysis and our DCF. The Disclosure Section may be found on pages 3 – 4.Valuation Our $39 price target reflects our reservations about the company’s ability to grow both organically and through acquisitions." (11/16/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acadia Healthcare’s earnings of 55 cents per share lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 15% and were also down 5.2% year over year. The bottom-line miss was due to rise in expenses that drained EBITDA margin. The company’s operating performance has been favorable for the past many years with consistently rising revenues. It is in the process of opening approximately 800 new beds to existing facilities and new facilities in 2018, which should further fuel its top-line growth. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry year to date. The company is well-positioned for long-term growth on the back of its inorganic strategies. However, it suffers high debt, escalating interest expenses and foreign exchange fluctuations. Substantial integration risks associated with the company’s frequent acquisitions are its major headwinds." (11/12/2018)
