What are Wall Street analysts saying about C R Bard stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about C R Bard stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In the last year, C. R. Bard has outperformed the broader industry trends with respect to price performance. Looking forward C. R. Bard is expected to benefit from the impending merger with Becton, Dickinson and Company, especially in the areas of medication management and infection prevention. The $24 billion transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017. We believe the development will provide benefits to the combined entity and bolster its foothold in the global medical devices market. The growing adoption of Lutonix DCB is also expected to drive top-line growth in the coming quarters.However, a challenging Med-tech environment is a major concern. The company witnesses significant pricing pressure as well. Additionally, cutthroat competition in the hernia fixation and peripheral stent businesses are likely to dent growth. " (12/26/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "BCR’s 3Q17 revenue missed and EPS beat consensus and management raised its 2017 revenue and EPS guidance. Revenue growth slowed somewhat to 5.0% in 3Q17 from 6.4% in 2Q17 as three of four segments missed consensus. Revenue growth faced a 1.5% headwind, attributable to the impact from the hurricanes and a Surgical Sealant supply issue, both equally. We have maintained our revenue and EPS estimates."
