What are Wall Street analysts saying about Health Insurance Innovations stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Health Insurance Innovations stock:
  • 1. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We maintain our BUY rating on HIIQ and raise our PT to $62. The table is being set in which ’19 could be a year of accelerating revenue and adj-EBITDA growth, reversing the normalization that is contemplated in ’18. The upcoming Oct. 1 change in STM duration (3-month to 1-year) and the individual mandate penalty removal (Jan.1, ’19) should make HIIQ’s insurance products more attractive from both a financial and quality perspective. We have taken a conservative stance with respect to our estimates as not to get too far ahead of the company, but overall we are encouraged with the growth opportunity and bias that estimates move higher as ’18 progresses." (8/2/2018)

Its product portfolio consists of short-term medical plans, accident, sickness & hospital medical plans, ancillary insurance, life insurance, lifestyle and discount services.
