Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about S&W Seed stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "S&W Seed Company is engaged in breeding, contracting to grow, processing and selling agricultural commodities, which primarily include alfalfa seed and, to a lesser extent, wheat. Alfalfa seed varieties grow in warm climates and can thrive on poor, saline (salty) soils. The Company sells the seed primarily to dealers and distributors who, in turn, sell primarily to hay and dairy farmers who grow hay for dairy cattle and other livestock. S&W Seed Company is headquartered in Five Points, California. " (2/14/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " ISecond Fiscal Quarter Results. Revenue of $18.6 million modestly beat our estimates of $18.0 million. Excluding the impact of ASC 606 and inorganic contributions, the top line grew 14% on a year-over-year basis, which represents the highest level of organic growth in three years.
     Integration Of Chromatin On Track. The $27 million acquisition of Chromatin in October has been smoothly integrated thus far. The financial results look positive as well, with gross margins in excess of 30% as compared to the low to mid 20% from legacy SANW business. Modest revenue came in during the second quarter, as nearly $20 million of annualized revenue is expected to be heavily skewed towards the second half of the fiscal year.
     One Quarter Closer. We continue to believe that SANW is effectively positioning itself for long term value creation via a number of initiatives. After a series of headwinds, the second quarter represented the first notable financial improvement in years. Given the initiatives coming online, we believe this improved performance could be a trend.
     Full Year Expectations Raised. Halfway through FY19 and SANW appears to be gaining traction and recovering out of a multi-year period of weakness. We are ticking up our revenue estimates for FY19/FY20 by $1 million in each period and reiterating our BUY rating and twelve-month price target of $6.00 per share." (2/14/2019)
