What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hologic stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hologic stock:
  • 1. BTIG Research analysts commented, "in the New Year; Maintain Buy, $17 PT Our thesis is unchanged as SPNE put up solid results in 1Q18. Recall that SPNE has been transitioning the US spinal hardware business from legacy products to newer products that should (and are) growing at a faster pace, namely Mariner and Shoreline. While it has taken a few quarters, SPNE now has ~45% (up from ~24% in 1Q17) of its US spinal implant revenue coming from newer products. Combined with a growing exclusive distributor base, results came in slightly above expectations at $33.2M (+4.0%) relative to BTIG/Consensus of $32.5M/$32.7M respectively. In addition, orthobiologics continues to grow in the MSD from the strength of the portfolio, +5.2% WW, +4.9% US. SPNE is launching multiple products in both categories through FY18 (including a lateral system, Regatta, in 3Q18) while also developing instrumentation that works with navigation access. Collectively, the business continues its positive progression, the portfolio continues to build, and growth should increase to the MSD to HSD in 2H18. While macro spine dynamics remain soft, SPNE is a share taker (even if it is at a smaller scale than others). We maintain our Buy rating and $17 PT." (5/6/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "FDA’s latest monthly Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) statistics were published on 5/1/18. The number of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) units increased by 199 during April which represents a 165.3% Y/ Y increase. DBT unit penetration increased to 31.8% from 31.1% last month and facility penetration increased to 49.6% from 48.1% last month. More importantly, DBT units placements are up 29.4% year-to-date (YTD) in 2018 vs. 2017. Assuming that HOLX is at least holding mammography market share, we believe its Breast Health business could accelerate some in 2018 given the strong YTD US mammography placements. We note that HOLX’s 3D mammography sales are less than 13% of its total sales." (5/1/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past three months, Hologic has been underperforming its industry. The company's  blood screening divestiture continues to impede growth. Foreign currency headwinds and a competitive landscape also continue to pose challenges for the company. On a positive note, Hologic has been witnessing strength in the Molecular Diagnostics. Moreover,  growth across all geographical regions buoys optimism. Buoyed on differentiated products, Breast Health has been performing well. We are upbeat about the recent CE Mark approval for Brevera breast biopsy system. Also, the PMA approval for the Aptima HBV Quant Assay for quantitation of hepatitis B viral load on the fully automated Panther system buoys optimism. Hologic’s strong cash position is encouraging."
