What are analysts saying about Hologic stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hologic stock:

  • Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "HOLX is acquiring Cynosure (CYNO) for $1.44B with an all-cash tender offer. CYNO is a leading aesthetics company that competes in a $2B market growing in the double-digits with a range of products used for hair removal, body contouring, skin revitalization, and other cosmetic procedures. HOLX expects CYNO to increase its revenue growth and add $0.13-0.15 to its FY18E EPS. HOLX has now effectively swapped a business with declining sales and margins (blood screening) for one with double-digit growth and improving margins (CYNO). With the blood screening EPS "hole" now partially filled and HOLX facing increasingly easy comps over the next three quarters, we upgrade to Buy." (2/15/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hologic delivered solid first quarter 2017 with both earnings and revenues ahead of the Zacks Consensus Estimate. We note that, the share price of Hologic, which outpaced the Zacks categorized Medical Instruments industry over the past three months, continues to trend higher banking on a solid quarterly performance. Segment-wise, barring skeletal Health, Hologic witnessed positive growth across all its business segments. However, a dismal guidance for the rest of fiscal 2017 concerns us. The blood screening divestiture and a stronger U.S. dollar are expected to mar the company's growth momentum in the upcoming period. On an impressive note, the loss making blood screening divestment should increase the company’s financial flexibility. Strong cash balance position also encourages us. Moreover, despite higher expenses, Hologic observed margin expansion on strong domestic sales growth, favorable product mix, and operational improvement." (2/3/2017)

  • Barclays PLC analysts commented, "stronger for longer" versus its previous expectations.The brokerage, who also upped the price target by $2 to $44, believes the breast health business will be able to sustain its L-MSD growth with a longer 3D mammography tail, service growth from 3D conversions, and new product launches such as Affirm."Our FDA mammography market model improves our conviction in the durability of placements and Hologic share gains," analyst Jack Meehan wrote in a note.In addition, the Meehan said the company's Panther system strengthened its leadership position at the high-end of MDx workflows and can drive L-MSD growth for the entire diagnostics business alone.Related Link: New 5-Year Contraceptive Coming To U.S. Adds To Long-Acting, Reversible Contraceptives List"The launch of the Fusion PCR sidecar in 2017/2018 will add additional flexibility to the instrument, which could lead to higher consumable pull-through, as the company expands its US menu beyond sexual health into virology," Meehan highlighted. Importantly, the analyst feels that Panther is "PAMA-proof" for upcoming Dx reimbursement changes, and could be an aggregator of share in a consolidating lab market. Further, the analyst expects at least HSD growth for the GYN Surgical unit from MyoSure strength."We believe that at current levels shares offer an attractive entry point, flat YTD versus the S&P 500 up 6 percent and our coverage universe up 15 percent," (9/23/2016)
