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, "▪ Growth Set To Accelerate – Macro tailwinds and internal developments are aligning such that we believe growth will make a meaningful step up in 2019 and into 2020. The nearly 30% revenue growth seen in the third quarter of 2018 represents what we believe to be the beginning of a trend, as we are modeling revenue to double from 2018 to 2020.
    ▪ Seed Treatment Business A Significant Near-Term Driver – A distribution agreement with Albaugh is ramping towards an expected $8 to $10 million run rate in 2020, representing the largest driver of growth over the next two years. Efforts are underway to expand the business beyond these levels, and we believe there is a meaningful opportunity both with additional microbes at Albaugh or with additional distributors.
    ▪ Cannabis Applications Taking Off – Venerate’s approval for cannabis grown in California last week represents the latest in a string of approvals in key states over the past year. While adoption of any inputs takes time after approval is granted, we anticipate cannabis being one of the key growth drivers in both the near and long term.
    ▪ Broad Product Suite Coming Online At The Right Time – With several products launching recently, MBII is expanding its offerings while the agriculture industry is becoming increasingly aware of the potential for biologicals. As such, we expect revenue growth to come from both an expanding market and an increase in market share.
    ▪ Positioning And Growth Outlook Unique Within Agriculture Industry – We believe MBII possesses one of the most compelling positions of small cap investments within the agriculture industry given its pure play focus on the high growth biological space." (2/14/2019)

  • 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). Gross margins were 48.3% for the quarter, compared to 40.9% in the year ago period." (11/14/2018)
