What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pacific Biosciences of California stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pacific Biosciences of California stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pacific Biosciences exited the first quarter on a weak note. While loss per share widened, the top line missed the consensus mark. The company has been gaining ground in the MedTech space on strong Sequel performance, which saw record bookings. Meanwhile, one of Pacific Biosciences’ biggest rival — Illumina — recently announced the acquisition of the former for $8 per Pacific Biosciences share (in an all-cash transaction). Per management, the total value of the deal is approximately $1.2 billion. The agreement is expected to close by mid-2019. Reflective of these, the company has outperformed its industry in a year’s time. On the flip side, both Product and Services revenues declined year over year. Significant contraction in gross margin and rise in operating expenses are concerning. The DNA sequencing market is fraught with competition." (5/21/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We think PACB’s long-read next-generation sequencing platform is the industry standard for deep genomic analysis in human, plant, and animal genomes, as well as RNA. The company has seen mixed revenue performance over the past three years, but we think PACB is getting close to an inflection point, which we think the Street is missing. We see the path to revenue acceleration as multifactorial. These include the launch of its 8 million ZMW SMRT cell, increased penetration of the plant and animal sequencing market, and significant sequencing cost reduction per human genome enabling PACB to become a more mainstream player in human genomics." (5/3/2019)
