What are Wall Street analysts saying about The Ultimate Software Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The Ultimate Software Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ultimate Software is benefiting from the robust adoption of its HCM solutions. Its cloud-based business model and expanding product portfolio are key catalysts. Top-line growth is expected to be bolstered by the portfolio strength. Additionally, new customer wins as well as impressive retention rates bode well. Of late, the company is witnessing traction in mid-market and strategic market business, which is also a positive. Further, solid cash position is a tailwind. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. The company has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. Stiff competition in the HCM market and higher operating expenses are other concerns." (7/3/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We met with Ultimate’s senior management and walked away more comfortable with its n-t business prospects. Management remains focused on executing on its current plan while enhancing its product portfolio to drive ASPs higher. On the competitive front, the environment remains unchanged with Ultimate continuing to acquire most of its customers from ADP, Paychex, and Ceridian." (12/14/2017)
