What are Wall Street analysts saying about FactSet Research Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FactSet Research Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "FactSet reported strong fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results, beating both earnings and revenue estmates. The company looks strong on the back of higher organic revenues,  increase in annual subscription value and robust global network. Acquisitions have helped  FactSet broaden its product suite, thereby delivering innovative products and evolve as a global financial database company. The company's shareholder-friendly moves boost investors' confidence and positively impact earnings per share. FactSet's shares have outperformed its industry in the past year. However, the company continues to face stiff competition from other players providing financial market data, analytics and related services. Acquisitions-related integration risks, risks associated with foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and high debt are other headwinds." (9/30/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Our Neutral rating on FactSet is based on our concerns regarding the potential impact from recent economic volatility on Financial Services spending. The company is working to offset weakness in its core business with growth from new services. We expect future quarters to provide better visibility on the possible timing of a reacceleration of organic growth rates that could come from large contracts and further color on margin expansion. Valuation Summary Our PT is $209 based on 22x our 2019 non-GAAP EPS estimate." (1/13/2019)
