What are Wall Street analysts saying about Wright Medical Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Wright Medical Group stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "On 1/7/19, WMGI guided to above consensus 4Q18 preliminary revenue and provided new long-term financial targets for 2019 through 2021. Organic revenue growth slowed to 10% (adjusting for selling days) in 4Q18 from 14% in 3Q18. Strong US Lower Extremities growth was slightly offset by a slowdown in the US Upper Extremities business though we note that US Upper Extremities faced its toughest comp of the year. And WMGI announced two management changes that we think may be CEO succession planning. While we currently model ~11% organic growth in 2019, we expect Cartiva, a stronger US Lower Extremities sales force, and recently launched products to drive upside to consensus and we reiterate our Buy rating." (1/7/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We reiterate our Overweight rating and a 12-month price target of $35 on shares of WMGI. We think WMGI is positioned to outperform expectations in 2018 with multiple drivers across each of its three primary segments (lower extremities, upper extremities, and biologics) to accelerate growth. We see WMGI’s valuation as attractive, as we expect innovative products to help WMGI to capitalize on the evolving market trends. Valuation Summary We base our $35 price target on a ~5.5x EV/Sales multiple on our 2019 sales estimate." (12/10/2018)
