What are Wall Street analysts saying about Glaukos stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Glaukos stock:
  • 1. BTIG Research analysts commented, "We maintain our Neutral rating on GKOS shares following a solid 1Q19 beat. Largely expected, GKOS delivered rev. of $54.0M vs. BTIG/Street est. of $49.7M/$50.2M as iStent inject conversions and OUS strength drove upside while competitive trialing was modest (below mgmt.’s initial expectations). CyPass share gains continue to buoy US results (we est. $9M-$10M/qtr.) Current business execution, market dynamics, and pricing all appear to be in-line to slightly better than originally guided with no material change to pipeline timelines. Against a ~$4M beat, mgmt. moved the lower-end of guidance up $5M (+$2.5M at the midpoint), sticking with a conservative (but optimistic) tone through the balance of the year. Mgmt. remains cautious around an increase in competitive trialing within the US combined with continued OUS challenges in the UK stemming from reimbursement cuts." (5/10/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Glaukos outperformed the industry in a year’s time. Moreover, the company issued guidance for 2019. In the past year, Glaukos made significant progress on the regulatory front and commenced the U.S. commercial launch of iStent Inject. Also, it initiated patient enrolment of key U.S. pivotal clinical studies for iDose Travoprost and iStent Infinite. Through continued investment and a new pharmaceutical development agreement with D. Western Therapeutic Institute Glaukos expanded its pharmaceutical capabilities. A strong pipeline is indicative of brighter prospects ahead. Nonetheless, Glaukos faces cutthroat competition in the Medical Devices space. Further, an overtly stringent regulatory-approval process for the iDose platform is concerning. The stock looks a bit expensive at the moment." (4/30/2019)
