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 exited 2018 on a promising note with better-than-expected results. However, the contraction in margins is disappointing. Headwinds like pricing pressure, reimbursement issues and a competitive landscape are major downsides. Overall, NuVasive has underperformed the S&P 500 over the past three months. Meanwhile, the company witnessed revenue growth across all key operating segments. Robust sales figures in international markets buoy optimism. We are upbeat about the strong demand for several of the company’s recently-launched products in the U.S. Spinal Hardware business. Furthermore, NuVasive's latest receipt of 510(k) clearance from the FDA along with the CE mark approval for its Precice Bone Transport System looks encouraging." (2/25/2019) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We maintain our Neutral rating and 12-month PT of $50 on shares of NUVA. NUVA has faced a growing number of challenges over the past 18 months, particularly in its US business, which has pressured the stock. We think it is appropriate to remain on the sidelines until we gain more confidence in the reacceleration of US growth and OM improvement. $50 price target is based on a 10x EV/EBITDA multiple on our 2020 EBITDA estimate." (2/11/2019) 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "NUVA’s 3Q18 revenue beat while its EPS missed. Management raised revenue guidance but lowered EPS guidance. Organic growth increased to 8% in 3Q18 from 5% in 2Q18 as improved domestic growth offset slower international growth. Operating margin was 220 bps below consensus as management decided to exploit an improving spine market by reinvesting in SG&A (up 70 bps Y/Y) and R&D (up 50 bps Y/Y). Gross margin met consensus and West Carrollton remains on track to deliver 130-150 bps of margin benefit in 2019. While the margin performance is frustrating, we expect the stronger growth combined with in-sourcing to drive better margin performance in 2019 and reiterate our Buy rating."
