What are Wall Street analysts saying about Boston Scientific stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Boston Scientific stock:
  • 1. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Although top-line metrics were less pristine in several areas (Neuromod, Cardiovascular), organic revenue growth improved by 80bps from Q2 to Q3. In addition, BSX absorbed a greater f/x headwind ($40M) than initially estimated in July, skewing down reported sales and Q4 guidance. EBIT was again a bright spot with GM well ahead of expectations on improving mix. Q3 results aside, there were no changes to strategy or the 2019 outlook since bullish commentary at TCT. We see little risk to the BSX story with underlying FY19 guidance out of the way, the imminent return of Heart trending ahead of expectations, and litigation seemingly in BSX’s favor (for now). We maintain Buy and $45 PT." (10/25/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "BSX announced it is acquiring the private company Augmenix for $500M cash up front and up to $100M in milestones. Augmenix’s SpaceOAR reduces side effects associated with prostate radiotherapy. BSX expects the deal to be immaterial to its adjusted EPS through 2019 and increasingly accretive beginning in 2020. The SpaceOAR hydrogel is CE Marked and FDA cleared and serves an estimated $750M market. We expect the deal to strengthen BSX’s Urology & Pelvic Health business. We expect BSX’s string of acquisitions in 2018 (including Augmenix) to combine to provide a material benefit to its longer-term organic growth and we reiterate our Strong Buy rating and raise our price target to $43 from $39." (9/7/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Boston Scientific's delay in the relaunch of the Lotus range of heart devices is expected to hamper sales in 2018 too. We are also concerned about the declining worldwide pacemaker sales hurting Boston Scientific’s CRM business. A competitive market also adds to the woes. However, the company has been gaining from impressive growth across all its business lines and geographies. The 2018 view also paints a bright picture for the near term. Boston Scientific achieved clinical milestones for Ranger Drug Coated Balloon and WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure device. Also, post the suspension of Lotus valve in Europe, ACURATE TAVR valve platform continues to build momentum. Lately, the company announced several strategic acquisitions including NxThera and nVision in Urology and Pelvic Health, EmCision in Endoscopy, Securus in EP and Millipede in Structural Heart. Overall, Boston Scientific outperformed its industry in a year’s time." (7/17/2018)
