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. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We would gently suggest that with shares down over 55% over the past few months that perhaps the miss, the guidedown, the “drama”, and even a riskier near‐term growth profile might mostly be “in the stock” at this point. We simply think the risk/reward now favors investment – even if Q3 comes in soft. We will try to make our argument in brief below." (9/12/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Merit Medical outperformed the industry in a year’s time. Significant expansion in adjusted gross margins in recent times buoy optimism in the stock. Robust Cardiovascular unit also encourages. Management is optimistic about Merit Medical’s Becton Dickinson deal that is set for completion at the end of 2019. Cianna Medical and Vascular Insights buyouts continue to contribute to results. Management is optimistic about several new products that are slated for introduction in the second quarter of 2019. However, escalating operating expenses remains a concern for the company. 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 also concern. The stock is overvalued at the moment." (7/1/2019)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "MMSI’s 1Q19 revenue and EPS beat consensus (due to a lower than expected tax rate). Management reiterated its 2019 revenue and EPS guidance. Organic revenue growth slowed from 4Q18 despite an easier comp. Gross margin expansion was partially offset by higher SG&A but MMSI still delivered 60 bps of Y/Y operating margin improvement. We still believe there are multiple sources of upside to revenue (e.g. BD products are organic, Cianna SCOUT would be incremental) and EPS guidance (e.g. continued margin improvement) and we reiterate our Buy rating." (4/25/2019)
