What are Wall Street analysts saying about Glaukos stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Glaukos stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Glaukos is currently progressing with the U.S. commercial rollout of its next-generation iStent inject Trabecular Micro-Bypass device. It also 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. Management is optimistic about the recent Avedro buyout. The company outperformed the industry year-to-date. With respect to quarterly results, Glaukos exited the second quarter on a tepid note. Also, Glaukos faces cutthroat competition in the Medical Devices space. Further, an overtly stringent regulatory-approval process for the iDose platform is concerning." (9/12/2019)
  • 2. 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)
