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 exited the third quarter on a mixed note with earnings ahead of the Zacks Consensus Estimate and revenues lagging the same. Strong transcatheter valve sales in the domestic and overseas markets are a major positive. The company also registered strong sales within its Critical Care division banking on which it has raised Critical Care guidance. Further, management is upbeat about CMS opening a National Coverage Analysis to reconsider the National Coverage Determination released in 2012 for transcatheter aortic valve replacement. On the flip side, management expects underlying sales growth in THVT for 2018 to remain at around 12.5% because of limited contribution from Cardioband and a newly-revised rollout strategy for SAPIEN 3 Ultra. Also, tough competition in the cardiac devices market and reimbursement issues continue to raise concern. Overall, in the past three months, Edwards Lifesciences underperformed its industry." (10/25/2018)
  • 2. 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)
