What are analysts saying about ANSYS stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ANSYS stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ANSYS is a dominant player in the high-end design simulation software market. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. We believe that robust product portfolio, expanding total addressable market (due to rising complexity in manufacturing IoT related products), improving enterprise penetration, collaborations with leading vendors and strong balance sheet will aid the stock to sustain momentum. Further, the ongoing restructuring and investments on product development along with sales execution are positives, in our view. However, declining perpetual license revenues will hurt top-line growth at least in the near term. Moreover, weakness in Europe and adverse foreign currency exchange rates are other major concerns." (10/4/2017)
- 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "ANSS's shift to lease licenses creates some degree of opaqueness about its underlying growth rate, but our interpretation of ANSS's numbers leads us to peg its growth trend at mid-single digits. Secular drivers for simulation growth remain intact, and cyclical demand conditions appear to be improving. Longer term, we think ANSS's shift to term licenses can be accretive, but a necessary move to cloud (and consumption-based pricing) could be disruptive to the company's high-margin model. ANSS shares look fairly valued at 22x EV/ FY17E FCF ($4.33/ share); we would be on the sidelines." (2/24/2017)

Consensus Ratings for ANSYS (NASDAQ:ANSS) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
