What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cerner stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cerner stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cerner exited the second quarter on a mixed note. The company continues to witness significant contributions from key areas like Population Health, Revenue Cycle and IT Works. Further, gains in the Licensed software, Professional and Managed Services units buoy optimism. International revenues also improved in recent times. Cerner is likely to benefit from electronic health record (EHR), electronic patient record (EPR) or electronic medical record (EMR) platforms that provide patient care in acute inpatient and outpatient settings. The stock outperformed the industry in a year. Meanwhile, Technology Resale, Support & Maintenance and Reimbursement Travel revenues declined year over year recently. Bookings also fell. Contraction in operating margins remains a concern. Furthermore, competition in the global MedTech space is a woe." (7/29/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Our rating remains Overweight and our PT remains $75. Although some amount of investor skepticism regarding the company’s growth outlook continues to temper valuation levels, we do not share those concerns. Our long-term DCF model assumptions are mostly conservative, with high single-digit revenue growth and modest margin expansion. Capital spending should moderate in 2019. We think the shares offer a compelling risk/reward trade off. Valuation Summary Cerner shares trade at a 32% discount to our DCF-based price target of $75." (4/9/2019)
