  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We expect HealthStream to report Q1/18 revenue of $55.5 million, which is 1% less than the FactSet consensus of $55.8 million. Our revenue forecast represents a year-over-year decline of 7% and a sequential decline of 12%. Excluding the Patient Experience Solutions (PES) business, which was divested in February 2018, our revenue forecast calls for year-over-year growth of 7% and a sequentially flat change. Earnings outlook: We expect HealthStream to report Q1/18 non-GAAP EPS of $0.05, which is less than the Factset consensus of $0.06. Our EPS forecast represents a year- over-year decline of 6% (from $0.06) and a sequentially flat change (from $0.05). Growth drivers: On a year-over-year basis, we expect total revenue growth to be led by the Provider Solutions (PS) business, which should grow 19% in Q1/18. Excluding PES revenue, the business comprised 17% of trailing twelve months (TTM) revenue." (4/26/2018)

  • 4. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We maintain our HOLD rating and $25 PT and will reevaluate our thesis and PT following tomorrow’s conference call. We suspect shares may react favorably given the strong operating income beat and raised 2017 operating income guidance, although we note that the implied 4Q guide is disappointing versus our previous estimates and consensus. Key positive: Delivering significant upside to operating income and raising 2017 operating income guidance will be viewed favorably. In the past, investors have questioned when HSTM would begin to deliver improved profitability. Key negative: Normalized growth in Workforce Solutions. The company’s largest division experienced a slowdown in growth." (10/23/2017)
