What are analysts saying about HealthStream stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about HealthStream stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Healthstream Inc. is pioneering a Web-based solution to meet the training and education needs of the healthcare industry utilizing our proprietary system. Through strategic relationships with medical institutions and commercial organizations, the company has amassed hours of training and education courses. The company distributes hours of these courses online to allied healthcare professionals, nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers. " (7/26/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "HSTM reported 4Q revenue/EPS results below our estimates as both Workforce Solutions and PE segments came in below our estimates. Although HSTM's 4Q conference call highlighted good sales momentum across all segments, product transitions and implementation bottlenecks from 2H16 should linger into FY17 and sales of its resuscitation product are expected to slow. Subscriber growth exceeded expectations, while ARPU was flat Y/Y but should grow again in FY17. Initial FY17 guidance fell in line with our 12% growth estimate, but we find the mix of lower WF growth but higher PE growth to be mildly disappointing. We are optimistic on the company's product roadmap after management announced a number of new product innovations and believe the combination of organic and inorganic products can accelerate revenue growth into FY18." (2/23/2017)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "After the close on Tuesday, February 21, HealthStream reported 4Q16 results that were below expectations. However, the company's 2017 outlook was slightly better than our estimates. The shares offer about 13% upside to our DCF-based target price. We characterize our long-term assumptions in our model as optimistic. However, we recognize that the company has a good track record of capital deployment and completing acquisitions which help to augment growth." (2/22/2017)
