  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Agilent reported strong fiscal third-quarter results on broad-based growth in all its product lines. The company also raised its guidance for full year 2019. The company’s expanding product portfolio, end-market strength and robust performance in Americas, China and Europe are key growth drivers. Moreover, the company’s decision to divest/wind up underperforming businesses is beneficial for its core operations. Further, the company’s focus on aligning investments towards more attractive growth avenues and innovative high-margin product launches are positive. Notably, shares of Agilent have outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, macro weakness in some regions, higher expenses and unfavorable foreign exchange remain concerns."

  • 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)
