What are analysts saying about Align Technology stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Align Technology stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Align Technology’s second-quarter 2017 performance was promising with it beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both the fronts. We are encouraged by the company’s strong InvisAlign Technology prospects and growth in North America and international regions. Management particularly expects consistent growth in the Asia-Pacific region. To note, the company has recently opened a new InvisAlign Technology Treatment Planning facility in China. We are also upbeat about the multi-million dollar marketing campaign for promoting InvisAlign Technology brand. The company’s receipt of two U.S. patents for SmartTrack  Aligner material buoys optimism. Notably, over the past one month, Align Technology has been trading above the industry. On the flip side, a strong dollar continues to act as a dampener. Also high consts and expenses weigh on margins. Moreover, tough competition and macroeconomic headwinds are other concerns."
