What are Wall Street analysts saying about Boston Scientific stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Boston Scientific stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "BSX’s 4Q18 revenue was in line with its 1/8/19 preannouncement while its EPS beat consensus. Management provided 2019 revenue guidance that bracketed consensus and adjusted EPS guidance that was below consensus at its mid-point. BSX’s organic revenue growth slowed to 7% in 3Q18 from 9% in 3Q18 given a more difficult comp. BSX’s operating margin was down 10 bps Y/ Y despite a 70 bps gross margin FX tailwind. Importantly, management indicated that Lotus Edge should be launched in the US in early 2Q19 and that they expect structural heart sales of $700-725M in 2019 which is up ~50% from 2018. Given BSX’s above-peer organic revenue growth, strong product pipeline, and potential for upside to estimates, we reiterate our Strong Buy rating." (2/6/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Boston Scientific is suffering from significant cost escalation, which is weighing on its margins. Also, delay in LOTUS relaunch is hampering sales through 2018. Declining worldwide pacemaker sales is also hurting the CRM business. On a brighter note, the company is seeing growth across all business lines and geographies. Boston Scientific received a number of FDA approvals within the Cardiovascular group. This apart, it launched LithoVue within Urology and rolled out the GUIDE XT in Europe. We look forward to the three recent acquisitions- Claret Medical, VENITI and Augmenix. These are expected to strongly contribute to the company’s inorganic growth profile. Boston Scientific’s significant progress related to its LOTUS valve relaunch encourages us. Also, post the suspension of LOTUS valve in Europe, ACURATE TAVR continues to build momentum. Over the past three months, Boston Scientific outperformed its industry." (1/7/2019)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Sure Why BSX Buy BSX will acquire BTG plc (BTG-GB, Not Rated) for ~$4B. BTG is in of sales in the U.S. BTG focuses on interventional medicine (oncology and vascular) and also has a pharma division. We are not sure why BSX is trading down ~3%, which is about $1B. This makes little sense to us on a $4B deal. We see the interventional space as a high growth area and oncology/vascular fit within BSX salesforces. BSX has used capital well buying Asthmatx recently. Between this track record and consistently hitting targets, we thought BSX would have leeway with investors to make purchases. BTG’s business OUS, we see this deal as similar to AMS, which has been hugely successful for BSX as it has expanded sales OUS. We feel this deal should benefit BSX’s interventional business like AMMD added growth to urology." (11/21/2018)
