What are Wall Street analysts saying about Agilent Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Agilent Technologies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Agilent reported weak fiscal second-quarter results due to slowing global demand in small molecule Pharma and softness in the China Food market. However, Agilent saw notable improvement across its other product lines. Moreover, its strengthening position in Americas, China and Europe remain the key growth drivers. Additionally, the company’s decision to wind up its underperforming businesses is benefiting its core operations. Further, the company’s focus on aligning investments towards more attractive growth avenues and innovative high-margin product launches are major positives. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, macro weakness in some regions and unfavorable foreign exchange remain concerns. Also, higher expenses are making margin expansion difficult for the company." (5/16/2019)
  • 2. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We think Agilent delivered a solid FY1Q19 print last night, featuring a modest top line beat which was leveraged into a 6% EPS beat ($0.76 vs. our $0.72 forecast). Consistent trends help improve our conviction in the thesis heading into FY2019. Organic growth of 6% in the quarter came in 1.2% better than our expectations and guidance. Growth was solid, although less broad-based than last quarter – which we view as understandable in the context of tough quarterly comps. Notably, DGG posted 13% organic growth while ACG delivered 10% organic growth. The capital equipment driven LSAG division posted just" 1% organic growth, but on an 11% quarterly comp. From an end market perspective, we think results hit the mark across customer classes and geographies. Pharma & Sales) posted 10% core growth." (2/21/2019)
