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, "Hologic exited the third quarter of fiscal 2019 on a solid note. The company registered strong top-line growth driven by solid increase in core businesses like Breast Health and Molecular Diagnostics. We are also upbeat about the recent launches like Aptima BV and Aptima CV/TV assays in the United States, the Trident HD specimen radiography system in the United States, Europe and Canada, and ThinPrep Genesis processor for cytology slide and molecular test preparation in Europe. Hologic has outperformed its industry over the past three months. On the flip side, foreign exchange headwind got intense during the quarter. Further, both the company’s margins contracted in the quarter under review. This apart volume environment for testing laboratories and utilization weaknesses are looming headwinds." (8/16/2019)
  • 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.
