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 has been gaining ground in the MedTech space on strong Sequel performance. The company’s product revenues also shot up in recent times. Meanwhile, one of Pacific Biosciences’ biggest rival — Illumina — recently announced the termination of the formerly announced $1.20 billion-merger agreement. Per management, Illumina will be paying Pacific Biosciences a termination fee of $98 million. Expansion in gross margin in recent times is also a positive. On the flip side, significant rise in operating expenses remains concerning. The company’s loss per share remained flat year over year. The DNA sequencing market is fraught with competition. The stock has underperformed its industry in a year’s time and is overvalued at the moment." (1/7/2020)
  • 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)
