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 announced it is acquiring the private company up front cash and commercial-based milestones. Vertiflex’s Superion system is a minimally invasive device to treat patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). BSX expects the deal to be immaterial to its adjusted EPS through 2020 and accretive thereafter. While we are a little surprised to see BSX enter the spinal surgery market, there probably are synergies with its existing pain business and we see this deal as a typical BSX transaction in which it acquires an asset allowing it to go deeper within a disease state/disorder (in this case chronic pain). We expect BSX’s string of acquisitions over the past ~18 months (including Vertiflex) to combine to provide a material benefit to its longer-term organic growth and we reiterate our Strong Buy rating." (5/13/2019)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "$42 Story BSX results fell short of Street expectations on a myriad of items. Heading into the print, investors anticipated the paclitaxel and mesh issues but less selling days, a temporary supply issue and a weaker Neuromod result pressured Q1 incrementally. As we anticipated in our preview, BSX guided FY19 revenue growth to the bottom half of the prior range (7-8% from 7- 9%). We revised our estimates accordingly for known pressure points and while there could be upside from high-growth segments (Structural Heart remains likely), our view is that NT significant outperformance by BSX is less likely than it was six months ago. On lower forecasts and a slightly lower multiple, we trim our PT from $45 to $42. Some investors have asked if the growth acceleration story is over. We do not think so but we do think there will be a NT slowdown before potential acceleration." (4/25/2019)
  • 3. 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)
