What are Wall Street analysts saying about Abbott Laboratories stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Abbott Laboratories stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Abbott exited first quarter 2019 with better-than-expected earnings and revenues figures. We are optimistic about the strong and consistent performance by the company’s EPD and Medical Devices segments on an organic basis. The company has been hogging the limelight within Diabetic Care on growth with FreeStyle Libre. Within Structural Heart, worldwide strong uptake of MitraClip improves further following the FDA approval of its upgraded version. This apart, synergies from Alere consolidation in the form of revenues from Rapid Diagnostics have been driving growth. Abbott's emerging market performance has been promising. Abbott has been outperforming the industry over the past year. On the flip side, sluggish Rhythm Management arm in the United States continues to dent growth. Increasing currency headwinds to some extent dented Abbott’s international performance in the last-reported quarter." (5/21/2019) 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Q4 was a mixed bag with reported revenue and margin falling short of consensus’ expectations, mostly due to f/x. Organic revenue growth was 6.4%, sequentially slower on the surface. However, ABT overcame its toughest comp in Q4 but smoothed for comps, revenue growth continued its upward trajectory. Importantly, ABT’s initial FY19 revenue outlook of 6.5-7.5% came in slightly ahead of our forecast. We think there is still a good chance 1.0/2.0 can nudge this range higher. Management noted that hitting the FY19 revenue range is not predicated on either a meaningful ramp in MitraClip or Libre 2.0 rollout in the U.S. The company also suggested that tweaks to underperforming areas like Neuromod should easily drive performance to the higher end of the range. Overall, we see little risk to the ABT story but see the valuation of 22x NTM EPS as appropriate." (1/24/2019) Has Abbott Laboratories been receiving favorable news coverage?
