What are Wall Street analysts saying about ANSYS stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ANSYS stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ANSYS is benefiting from the adoption of its engineering simulation software and services. Growing clout of simulation in repair, maintenance and other overhaul projects is strengthening the company’s prospects. Increase in budgetary allocation for the defence spending across Europe & the United States is likely to be a tailwind. Robust investments in autonomous vehicles, electrification, smart, connected solutions and 5G hold promise. Moreover, Granta Design and Helic buyouts are helping ANSYS to fortify presence in the simulations market. However, adverse foreign currency exchange rates and declining perpetual upfront revenues remain concerns. Moreover, increasing spend on acquisitions pose integration risks. Also, stiff competition from CAD vendors is a woe." (10/14/2019)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We see some caution looking forward: Management noted that their financial guidance includes reduced expectations from their business in China as the result of the on-going trade discussions, which we view as prudent. While ACV was up nicely in the quarter (~14% as reported in cc and an estimated 10% y/y organic cc) the company only raised guidance slightly ($1,440-$1,470M vs. $1,425-1,475M prior). The company also maintained CFO of $470-$510M which given the weak CFO in the quarter (~$88.5M vs us/street at $99.4M/$132.1M) puts more pressure on the back half to make up the difference. Margins came in a lot stronger than expected (nearly 500 bps above consensus), however, which suggests there may be more upside to profitability." (8/6/2019)
