What are Wall Street analysts saying about Globus Medical stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Globus Medical stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Globus Medical, Inc. is a medical device company focused on the design, development and commercialization of products that promote healing in patients with spine disorders. The Company's products fall into one of two categories: innovative fusion or disruptive technologies. Its innovative fusion products address a broad range of spinal fusion surgical procedures. Its disruptive technology products include minimally invasive surgical, motion preservation and advanced biomaterials technologies. Globus Medical, Inc. is based in Audubon, Pennsylvania. " (1/10/2018)
- 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "GMED’s core spine organic growth has slowed though we expect some improvement in 2018 due to sales force enhancements. Its Emerging Technologies business should begin to add to growth in 2018 as well. But even accounting for this, we’re concerned that consensus 2018 estimates may be too high. And we believe that GMED’s earnings growth is going to be mostly driven by revenue growth." (9/26/2017)
- 3. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "ELGX’s 2Q17 sales of $48.6M (-4.7%) came in ahead of our/consensus estimates of $47.6M; higher OUS sales offset lighter US results impacted by sales force attrition and lower AFX2 sales recapture. Ovation growth remained strong. Net loss was better on higher sales, better GM, and lower opex. ELGX lowered FY17 guidance by $9M at the midpoint to $185-190M on lower AFX2 sales recapture and sales force attrition. ELGX expects to begin PMA enrollment for Gen2 Nellix in late 2017/early 2018. We expect a slight uptick in 2H17 sales as AFX2 US softness continues, offset by Ovation US growth. We assume higher growth in ’18 versus ’17 on easier ’17 comps from both AFX manufacturing issues and the narrowed Nellix IFU." (8/3/2017)

Globus Medical (NYSE:GMED) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
