What are Wall Street analysts saying about athenahealth stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about athenahealth stock:
  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Growth at ATHN appears to be slowing. athena’s top-line growth has certainly decelerated, as evidenced by the decline in bookings for 1Q18. Bookings picked up in 2Q18 but it remains to be seen if that is sustainable. ATHN’s KLAS Research scores for Collector and Clinicals have held up well. It remains to be seen if the company’s efforts to expand into the hospital market and population health will pay dividends. Nonetheless, the magnitude of the margin expansion in 1H18 demonstrates the inherent leverage in the recurring revenue model, in our view. We reiterate our Neutral rating on the shares." (9/18/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We remain neutral on the stock until we get a better understanding of the restructuring initiatives, financial predictability, and the go-forward growth strategy. Pre-call takeaways: Upside to revenue, with significant bottom-line beat. Rev. of $329.2M (+14.2%) beat our est. $324.8M and cons. $320.0M, and came in at the high end of implied guidance range $309-$329M. Beats on adjusted gross margin and all expense line items enabled the company to post non-GAAP op. inc. of $77.6M (+82.6%), far surpassing us and cons. both near ~$45M and implied guidance of $38-53M. Adj-EPS of $1.11 also beat our est. $0.65 and cons. $0.63." (2/1/2018)
