Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nextgen Healthcare stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NextGen outperformed its industry in a year's time. NextGen currently rides on Software, hardware and other non-recurring unit. Management presently foresees solid growth prospects in the RCM pipeline as well. The NextGen population health analytics suite and NextGen mobile platform registered significant growth. Solid bookings growth deserves mention. For investors’ notice, the company expects high-single digit revenue growth by fiscal 2020. NextGen announced the availability of Quality/Cost Fusion – a new Population Health analytics capability. Quality/Cost Fusion is a part of NextGen Population Health platform – a modular, cloud-based solution. On the positive side, NextGen's lowered guidance for fiscal 2019 indicates looming concerns ahead. Also, the plummeting gross profit is a negative. Sluggishness in the recurring revenue segment in recent times adds to the woes. The company faces stiff rivalry in MedTech space. " (1/7/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating on NXGN shares and maintain our price target of $23. We recently met with NXGN management team. We remain confident that some of the issues that came up with its F2Q19 results (reported in late October) were temporary in nature. As a reminder, F2Q19 bookings were about $36 million, representing growth of 39% y/y, which is impressive. However, as deal size increases, implementation timelines expand and short-term revenue is not hitting expectations. The company also experienced higher-than-expected customer attrition. After considering the elevated attrition during the quarter and the company’s expectation that it will remain elevated for some time, we reduced our F20 revenue growth assumption to 5.7% from 7.0%."
