We also think regulatory risk to the deal remains low. The acquisition is expected to be completed mid-2019. We spoke to a number of industry participants to assess the likelihood of a higher bidder and regulatory approval." (11/12/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pacific Biosciences saw a dreary second quarter. However, the company witnessed strong bookings for Sequel in the quarter. Constant instrument orders from BGI and China are encouraging. Furthermore, the company is well poised on expansion of SMRT Sequencing and product development activities. 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.
