What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hologic stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hologic stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hologic has outperformed its industry in the past three months. The company's strong international performance and improvement in Surgical and Cynosure businesses are encouraging. Backed by a portfolio of differentiated products, the company’s Breast Health business has been going strong. The company's recent launches like TempSure Surgical RF technology in North America and the U.S. launch of  Omni hysteroscope buoys optimism. We are upbeat about the company making the Open Access functionality available for its Panther Fusion system. Also, the receipt of CE Mark for its Panther FusionBordetella assay buoys optimism. However, tough year-ago comparison along with sluggish Diagnostics sales in the reported quarter hampered Hologic’s overall performance.  Also, the blood screening divestiture is likely to impede growth." (1/9/2019)
  • 3. 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)
