  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Stericycle have underperformed the industry it belongs to in the past year. The company continues to operate in a highly-competitive industry where the barriers to entry are very low in the regulated waste collection and disposal business. Vast international presence exposes Stericycle to foreign currency exchange-rate risks. A debt-laden balance sheet remains a major concern. Despite such headwinds, Stericycle continues to increase its market share and expand geographic base with the help of acquisitions in both domestic and international markets. We also appreciate the company's consistent efforts to develop internally. To better meet customer demands, the company has been improving its solution offerings and platforms. Stericycle's focus on providing regulated business-to-business services to smaller businesses should boost its offerings." (10/9/2018)
