What are Wall Street analysts saying about ANSYS stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ANSYS stock: 1. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We believe this is likely partially due to increased FX headwinds, but believe the majority of this likely represents a shift in business between F3Q and F2Q, as F2Q18 total software license revenue was ~$19M above consensus. For F18 under ASC 606, total revenue guidance was essentially maintained at the midpoint on a reported basis (with a tighter range), and was ~1% above consensus at the midpoint. The company noted that it is effectively raising total revenue guidance in constant currency, as it faces greater FX headwinds than when prior guidance was given three months ago. Non-GAAP EPS guidance was slightly above consensus at the low-end of the range, and above at the midpoint." (8/6/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ANSYS develops and globally markets engineering simulation software and services. Increasing demand for simulation particularly from industries like energy bodes well for ANSYS. We believe that robust product portfolio, expanding total addressable market improving enterprise penetration, collaborations with leading vendors, and strong balance sheet are the catalysts. The buyout of 3DSIM will help ANSYS to foray into 3D metal printing and access the industry's only complete additive manufacturing simulation workflow. Acquisitions like 3DSIM and OPTIS are not only enabling ANSYS to bring innovative solutions to the market but are also aiding it to enhance foothold in the competitive simulations market. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry over the past one year. Nontheless, declining perpetual up front revenues, adverse foreign currency exchange rates, integration risks and stretched valuation are key negatives."
