What are Wall Street analysts saying about NuVasive stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about NuVasive stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NuVasive has underperformed its industry over the past six months. We note that, the company saw softness in U.S. Spinal Hardware and U.S. Surgical Support businesses in the last reported quarter. Headwinds like Margin drag, pricing pressure, reimbursement issues and competitive landscape are major downsides. However, the international business registering more than 20% growth for the sixth consecutive quarter buoys optimism. Further, efforts like the addition of Lateral Single-Position Surgery to expand its lateral procedural solutions offerings will help the company rebound in the rest of the year. The company also expects to see a 400 bps improvement in gross margins on increasing production in its Ohio manufacturing facility in the second half of 2018. Moreover, we are upbeat about the integration synergy of recently-completed buyout of SafePassage." (7/3/2018)
  • 2. 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)
