What are Wall Street analysts saying about Heska stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Heska stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Heska Corporation sells advanced veterinary diagnostic and specialty products. Heska's state-of-the-art offerings include blood testing instruments and supplies, digital imaging products, software and services, data services, allergy testing and immunotherapy, and single-use offerings such as in-clinic diagnostic tests and heartworm preventive products. The Company's core focus is on the canine and feline markets where it strives to provide high value products and unparalleled support to veterinarians. " (3/5/2019)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe the meetings reinforced our long-term thesis on the stock – global expansion, new products, and scarcity value in diagnostics support our BUY thesis. Near term, investors await a 2019 guide on Heska’s earnings call next Tuesday, which we view as a near-term risk event for the stock. We would be more apt to put new money to work after HSKA reports Q4 and sets the bar. Moving up the value chain. We believe most investors do not know or appreciate that HSKA’s livestock/poultry/dairy (LPD) business has value, since growth from that business has been in decline. HSKA plans to manufacture its new immunodiagnostics + and rotor chemistry consumables from Des Moines, IA, leveraging its own USDA- regulated manufacturing facility. Longer term, we think HSKA will get more credit for manufacturing more of its products (accretive to GMs), while today it uses OEMs for most of its revenue." (2/20/2019)
