What are Wall Street analysts saying about Edwards Lifesciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Edwards Lifesciences stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Edwards Lifesciences has reported better-than-expected first-quarter 2019 figures. The company has been seeing strong transcatheter valve sales in the domestic and overseas markets. It has registered strong sales within its Critical Care division, boosted by a surge in HemoSphere sales. Currently, Edwards Lifesciences awaits the full-market launch of the HemoSphere platform with FloTrac System and Acumen Hypotension Predictive Index. The company is also upbeat about the acquisition of CASMED, expected to strengthen its position in smart monitoring technologies within the critical care platform. Further, we are pleased with Edwards Lifesciences’ recent receipt of the CE Mark for PASCAL. Overall, in the past three months, Edwards Lifesciences outperformed its industry. Meanwhile, persistent supply constraints dented Cardioband system sales. This apart, tough competition in the cardiac devices market and reimbursement issues raise concerns." (5/16/2019)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "As we cautioned in our Q1 preview, TAVR results missed Street estimates. While we have no doubt that the underlying market remains strong, results have been light for 4+ quarters now, making us question if the market growth is a tad less than expected or if share is slightly shifting. Even so, management maintained an upbeat tone and there was no change to TAVR guidance but with Boston Scientific’s (BSX, Lotus approved in the U.S. tonight, we have to think that combined with weak Q1 results, shares may see pressure. On longer-term drivers, mitral sales were $4M in Q1 and although early feedback on PASCAL has fostered management’s own confidence in its outlook, we feel hitting $40M in revenue this year is a lofty goal. On the positive side, we would point to management’s bullishness on the revenue ramp in 2H and the solid expense control driving the EPS beat." (4/24/2019)
  • 3. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We analyze data on MitraClip + GDMT in HFpEF / HFrEF + FMR, & impact on existing clinical trials in both transcatheter mitral repair / replacement programs. There are a ton of unknowns, however, it is likely that: 1) Edwards PASCAL trial will need to be redesigned with MitraClip as the control (even though the trial is in DMR; Medtronic’ APOLLO trial, especially in HFrEF might" not need MitraClip as the comparator). 2) COAPT results are not applicable in real-world setting. Key Points We confess, we don’t have access to raw data in COAPT, hence it is impossible to make definitive arguments." (10/11/2018)
