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 continues to remain one of the leading providers of integrated data-related products and services to the investment community. It looks strong on the back of higher organic revenues, increase in annual subscription value and robust global network. Acquisitions have been a key growth catalyst. The company’s efforts to reward its shareholders through share buybacks and dividend payments are appreciable. The company has outperformed the industry’s growth in the past year. Despite such positives, FactSet continues to face stiff competition from other players providing financial market data, analytics and related services, in the market. While multiple acquisitions increase the company’s exposure to integration risks, global presence makes it vulnerable to foreign currency risk. High debt may limit the company’s future expansion and worsen its risk profile." (2/21/2019) 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) Has FactSet Research Systems been receiving favorable news coverage?
