What are Wall Street analysts saying about Acadia Healthcare stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acadia Healthcare stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acadia Healthcare has been able to grow its top line on the back of organic and inorganic growth initiatives. The company has been actively emphasizing on acquisitions for expedited growth. Moreover, it is well positioned to fund its new bed development. The company’s robust balance sheet also impresses. However, its long-term debt has increased consistently for the past many years, leading to an increase in interest expense. The company has been witnessing rising expenses since 2009 inducing margin contraction. Shares of the company have lost in a year's time, comparing unfavorably with the industry's gain in the same time frame. A Zacks Rank #2 and an earnings ESP of 0.00% leave us inconclusive of an earnings surprise as it reports its fourth-quarter earnings on February 28." (2/18/2019) 2. 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."
