What are Wall Street analysts saying about Marrone Bio Innovations stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Marrone Bio Innovations stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " Q4 Revenues Beat Consensus. Revenue of $5.7 million came in ahead of consensus estimates of $4.8 million, representing growth of 72% on a year-over-year basis. Excluding the impact of non-recurring, non-operating expenses, a net loss of $0.05 per share narrowly missed our estimate of $0.04 per share.
     Seed Treatment Business Delivering. Management noted the contributions from the Venerate family of products was a major growth driver during the quarter, especially when applied as seed treatment. We believe the seed treatment agreement with Albaugh represents the single largest growth driver for MBII and could be a $10 million contributor by 2020.
     OpEx Ticks Upward. SG&A and R&D came in roughly flat on a full year basis from 2017 to 2018 but ticked up in the fourth quarter. Investments to accelerate the launch of MBI-014 and in additional headcount in the sales force look to increase OpEx on a full year basis in 2019. We model revenue growth in 2019 of 42% to outpace growth of 10% in OpEx.
     Multiple Catalysts Converging In 2019. The ramping of the seed treatment business, acceleration of cannabis revenues, growth in international markets and maturation of the sales force all suggest to us that the momentum MBII ended the year with should continue into 2019. We are raising our 2019 revenue estimate from $28.5 million to $30.0 million.
     Organic Growth Rates Ahead of Agricultural Peers. We estimate organic growth of 42% in 2019, which is the highest rate of any agricultural peer we consider with an established product line. Importantly, the primary drivers have long legs, and we believe the company can grow from a $21 million business in 2018 to a $100 million business by 2023." (3/15/2019)

  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We are lowering our price target on MBII to $2.50, from $3.50 previously, driven by: (1) effect of salesforce attrition, experienced earlier in 2018, that has continued to negatively impact the pace of topline revenue growth; (2) slower than expected regulatory approval process for the company’s bioinsecticides, biofubgicides, and biopesticides.; and (3) longer than expected sales cycles. We are now taking a slightly more conservative stance on our forward projections for MBII, resulting in the lowered price target. Please see the valuation section of this note for more details. 3Q18 results overview. 2018, MBII reported revenues of $5.4M for the quarter (28.6% YoY increase).
