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, "This morning, BSX preannounced 4Q18 revenue that was in line with consensus though we note that the currency headwind was 40 bps higher than what we had modeled. BSX’s underlying revenue growth slowed to 7.0% in 4Q18 from 8.7% in 3Q18 given a more difficult comp. While BSX faces tougher comps starting in 2Q19, we believe a strong product portfolio (particularly BSX’s structural heart products) should enable BSX to sustain upper-single digit revenue growth and double- digit EPS growth in 2019 and we reiterate our Strong Buy rating." (1/8/2019)
  • 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)
