Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We reiterate our BUY rating and raise our PT to $24 after recently hosting investor meetings with HMS CFO Jeff Sherman. Although shares have rebounded from depressed levels, we contend there is room to move higher as the benefits from improved workflows and technology investments take hold. A scenario is coming into focus for accelerated revenue growth driven by double-digit increases in payment integrity and the new population health offering and steady margin expansion through artificial intelligence and automation. With the acquisition of competitor Cotiviti, HMS will be the only publicly traded vehicle focused on ensuring payment integrity in healthcare." (7/2/2018) 3.

Eliza revenue of $12.9 million grew 30% q/q as Eliza’s revenue tends to be back-end loaded, with 3Q and 4Q being the strongest.
