Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Illumina stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In the last three months, Illumina outperformed its industry. The company’s recent strategic collaborations are expected to expand its product portfolio. This apart an improving margin scenario should also instill confidence on the stock. Currently, Illumina is focusing on product innovation through research and development as well, which is evident from the launch of iSeq 100 Sequencing System recently. Post a promising fourth-quarter show, we expect Illumina to maintain its growth momentum on continued uptake of sequencing consumables, instruments and microarray portfolios. On the flip side, the company is operating in a tough competitive landscape which is a concern. Further, the stock looks a bit overvalued at the moment." (4/16/2018)
