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 robust adoption, expanding total addressable market, improving enterprise penetration and collaborations with leading vendors. Robust investments in autonomous vehicles, electrification, smart, connected solutions and 5G bode well. Customers’ focus on utilizing simulation across repair, maintenance and other overhaul projects is a positive. Increase in budgetary allocation for defense spending across Europe and the US favors company’s growth prospects. OPTIS, 3DSIM Granta Design and Helic buyouts are expected to enable ANSYS in bringing innovative solutions to the market and enhance foothold in competitive simulations software market. However, as ANSYS continues to invest on product development its margin is expected to remain under pressure. Moreover, adverse foreign currency exchange rates and integration risks remain other concerns. Notably, shares of ANSYS have underperformed the industry in the past year." (3/20/2019) 2. 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) Has ANSYS been receiving favorable news coverage?
