At the conference we met with PacBio management, and we attended PacBio’s exhibitor education event that was open to all conference attendees. Below we highlight our conference takeaways and answer top investor questions we’ve received since we launched coverage." (10/21/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pacific Biosciences saw a dreary second quarter. However, the company witnessed strong bookings for Sequel in the quarter.

On the flip side, Product and service revenues deteriorated on a year-over-year basis due to lower instrument revenues. Dull performance in the other revenue segment is a concern. The DNA sequencing market is rife with competition. Sales in Europe declined considerably. Also, higher operating expenses are a headwind. The stock is currently overvalued.
