What are Wall Street analysts saying about Merit Medical Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Merit Medical Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Merit Medical exited the fourth quarter of 2018 on a solid note with considerable expansion in adjusted gross margin. A solid guidance of 2019 indicates bright prospects ahead of the stock. Strong growth in the Cardiovascular segment is a positive. Management is optimistic about Merit Medical’s Becton Dickinson deal, the acquisitions of Cianna Medical and Vascular Insights, and the execution of the global growth and profitability plan. New products like EmboCube Embolization Gelatin, the basixTAU Inflation Device, the Prelude Prestige Splittable Sheath Introducer, the Prelude Ideal Sheath Introducer, the PreludeSYNC Radial Hemostasis Device are likely to expand the company’s customer base. However, surging operating expenses is a concern. Headwinds like stiff competition and higher consolidation in the healthcare industry add to the woes. Sluggishness in the Custom kits and procedure trays and Embolization devices units is worrisome." (3/13/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "MMSI announced it is has acquired substantially all of the assets of Vascular Insights (private) for $40M of cash upfront and up to $20M in milestone payments. Vascular Insights’ ClariVein products are used to treat superficial venous disease and serve an estimated ~$700M market. MMSI expects the deal to be ~$0.02 dilutive and between $0.00-0.02 accretive to 2018 and 2019 non-GAAP EPS, respectively, and to contribute between $10-11M in revenue in 2019. The Vascular Insights deal is consistent with both our investment thesis and MMSI’s M&A strategy and we reiterate our Buy rating." (12/17/2018)
