What are Wall Street analysts saying about NuVasive stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about NuVasive stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "NUVA’s 1Q18 revenue beat and EPS missed consensus. Management reiterated its 2018 revenue and EPS guidance. Organic revenue growth improved to 2% in 1Q18 from 0% in 4Q17 as US Spinal Hardware and biologics growth improved. NUVA’s revenue guidance requires it to accelerate its revenue growth; we believe that it can do this given new products, easing comps, and stabilization of biologics. And its EPS guidance requires a substantial improvement in its gross and operating margin; we believe it can do this with improvements in its new manufacturing plant and SG&A leverage. Unfortunately, both the revenue and margin ramps are likely to continue to make NUVA a show me" story despite its discount P/E multiple." (5/2/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NuVasive has underperformed its industry over the past six months. The company's U.S. business has been delivering dull performance with softness in both U.S. Spinal Hardware and U.S. Surgical Support businesses. However, solid performance of the international business with more than 20% growth for the fifth consecutive quarter buoys optimism. The company’s expectation to higher adjusted operating profit margin of at least 100 bps in 2018 reflects its focus on operational efficiencies and in-house manufacturing facility. Moreover, we are upbeat about the recently-completed buyout of SafePassage. Per NuVasive, the acquisition will strengthen the company's intraoperative neuromonitoring business line. The consolidated giant is expected to deliver services to more than 1,000 customers and 3,000 surgeons." (5/1/2018)
