What are Wall Street analysts saying about Edwards Lifesciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Edwards Lifesciences stock:
  • 1. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We doubt the latter is true. At the same time, how much of the outlook is predicated on a successful launch of these new platforms? We have been sounding the alarm on Edwards’ TMVR program for over a year. Our checks in Europe, on both CardiAQ and SAPIEN M3 have been poor. Edwards did not provide any real update on these programs on the Q2-18 call. At the same tie, both Medtronic and Abbott have started their pivotal trials, and it is unclear to us if figuring out a transseptal route is the only thing delaying the TMVR program. Our checks in Europe suggest that there is more to this than meets the eye." (7/27/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past six months, Edwards Lifesciences has outperformed its industry. We are upbeat about the company witnessing strong transcatheter valve sales in the domestic market as well as overseas. Edwards Lifesciences’ raised 2018 EPS guidance buoys optimism. We are also upbeat about the receipt of CE Mark for its self-expanding CENTERA valve. The FDA approval of De Novo request for the Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI) software is also encouraging. Management expects to gain traction in the ever-expanding TAVR market based on increasing preference for transcatheter aortic valve replacement as well as compelling clinical evidence, leading to strong adoption of THV therapy. However, tough competitions in the cardiac devices market and reimbursement issues continue to pose challenges." (7/16/2018)
