What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hologic stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hologic stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In recent times, Hologic registered strong top-line growth led by robust performances within majority of its businesses. In the last reported quarter, organic revenue growth against the toughest comparable of the year, significantly outdid Hologic’s projections. Continued solid uptake of Aptima women's health assays and consistent expansion of global installed bases of Genius 3D mammography systems and Panther instruments are encouraging. It put up a robust first quarter fiscal 2020 show with in-line earnings and revenues ahead of expectations. However, the contractions in both margins during the quarter are concerning. Difficult macroeconomic conditions due to coronavirus outbreak and foreign exchange fluctuations are other headwinds trailing the company. Overall, Hologic has been underperforming its industry over the past three months." (4/28/2020)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We look for greater evidence for Hologic to find a solution to its declining gross margins and we need more time to get confident that Cynosure has bottomed. Nevertheless, near mid-single-digit growth and effective capital allocation (buybacks and tuck-in deals) are warming us up to the stock as HOLX delivered a 2% top-line beat, 2 cent bottom-line beat, and raised its FY top- and bottom-line guide. That said, its FY’19 raised" revenue is less than the FQ3 $17M beat (FX headwinds being one factor), a consistent trend of setting a low bar for the next reporting quarter and essentially not raising its underlying baseline guide. We reiterate our HOLD, PT to $52. FQ3 beat. (+3.4% rep, +4.7% FXN) exceeded our/Street’s $835ME and adj." (8/1/2019)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "FDA’s latest monthly Act (MQSA) statistics were published on 7/1/19. The number of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) units increased by 92 during June which represents a 30.8% Y/Y decrease. DBT unit penetration increased to 37.3% from 37.0% last month and facility penetration increased to 62.1% from 61.4% last month. More importantly, DBT units placements were up 2.7% quarter-to-date (QTD) in 2Q19 vs. 2Q18. We note that HOLX’s 3D mammography sales are less than 13% of its total sales.
