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 first quarter of fiscal 2019 on a solid note led by double-digit constant currency growth in core businesses like U.S. Breast Health, International and Global Molecular Diagnostics. We are also upbeat about the recent product launches like the Omni hysteroscope and Panther Fusion Open Access functionality in the United States, the Panther Fusion Bordetella assay in Europe, and the Surgical hand piece for the TempSure radiofrequency system in North America. Backed by a portfolio of differentiated products, the company’s Breast Health business has been going strong. We are also looking forward to the company's receipt of global approvals for its Omni hysteroscope.  Hologic has outperformed its industry in the past three months. However, rising costs continue to exert pressure on adjusted operating margin. Also, company operating in a highly competitive landscape is a concern." (3/5/2019)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Hologic preannounced F1Q revenue earlier this month, so focus around the formal report was on expectations for F2Q and FY19. In our view, guidance was set at an achievable level, with management pointing to concerns around anticipated negative foreign exchange impacts. Commentary underscored the recovery in the Breast Health segment and opportunities for upgrades in that business. We sensed a continued shift away from worries about the Cynosure Medical Aesthetics division and an emphasis on the solid results from the Core business (Breast and Diagnostics). It seems to us that the drivers increasing Breast and Diagnostics growth are multifactorial and sustainable, boosting our confidence that HOLX can continue to regain credibility and enjoy improved investor sentiment." (1/31/2019)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "FDA’s latest monthly Act (MQSA) statistics were published on 1/7/19. The number of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) units increased by 66 during December which represents a 3% Y/ Y decrease. DBT unit penetration increased to 34.9% from 34.7% last month and facility penetration increased to 56.8% from 56.3% last month. More importantly, DBT units placements were down 2.5% in 4Q18 vs. 4Q17. HOLX’s Breast Imaging growth slowed slightly in January data seems to indicate that growth could slow more in F1Q19. We note however that HOLX preannounced F1Q19 results last week which included strong Breast Health performance. We note that HOLX’s 3D mammography sales are less than 13% of its total sales. Please contact your Needham salesperson for a copy of our MQSA data." (1/14/2019)
  • 4. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe the stock is up today because HOLX (1) removed uncertainty regarding its 2019 guide and (2) announced agreements to renew with LH and DGX, which we think alleviates a modest overhang on the stock. HOLX’s top line guide of ~2-3.5% growth is not enough for us to get excited about. We look for signs of faster growth and progress mitigating margin drags and reiterate our HOLD. We raise our PT from $41 to $43, as we roll forward a 16.5x multiple on our new ’20E Adj. EPS of $2.60. Alleviates lab contract overhang. HOLX has agreed to deals with large lab customers (LH & DGX), a positive outcome to a modest overhang on the stock. One deal is a multi- year" extension of its supply contract while the other provides instruments and tests. While we view these deals favorably, we believe HOLX likely made price concessions to do the deals." (11/8/2018)
