What are Wall Street analysts saying about NuVasive stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about NuVasive stock: 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We maintain our Neutral rating and 12-month PT of $58 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. $58 price target is based on an 11x EV/EBITDA multiple on our 2019 EBITDA estimate." (10/19/2018) 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We believe that new products, improved biologics growth, easing comps, and NUVA’s vertical integration should enable it to see stronger top and bottom line growth in 2H18 and 2019. NUVA has launched a number of new products in 2018 and has more coming (including Pulse in 2Q19) that should enable it to accelerate its revenue growth. And NUVA’s vertical integration effort and cost efficiency initiatives should enable it to exceed its target for ~100 bps of annual operating margin improvement in 2019. We have increased confidence in NUVA’s outlook and we raise our price target to $80 from $67 and reiterate our Buy rating." (10/17/2018) 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NuVasive delivered revenues ahead of the Zacks Consensus Estimate while its earnings met the consensus mark. The company registered balanced growth in both its business wings. Also, a solid show by the international business buoys optimism. The company expects to see strong demand for new products and positive surgeon conversion efforts as its new Lateral Single-Position Surgery procedure gains traction in the market. Moreover, we are upbeat about the recently-completed consolidation of SafePassage. On the flip side, apart from lowered earnings, operating margin outlook seems disappointing. Headwinds like pricing pressure, reimbursement issues and competitive landscape are other major downsides. NuVasive has underperformed its industry over the past year."
