What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hill-Rom stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hill-Rom stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hill-Rom exited the fiscal third quarter on a strong note. Year-over-year revenue growth was solid domestically driven by sturdy performance by Patient Support Systems and Surgical Solutions. The company is also focusing on product innovation through research and development. Year to date, it has raked in more than $180 million from new products. Also, the company’s long-term financial objectives through 2020 look promising. Hill-Rom has outperformed its industry in the past three months. However, a challenging international comparison resulting from last year’s large construction project in the Middle East hampered growth. Also, foreign exchange and a tough competitive landscape remain headwinds." (8/1/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Consistent with its 1/9/18 preannouncement, HRC beat consensus F1Q18 revenue and EPS. Management reiterated its FY18 revenue guidance and raised its FY18 adjusted EPS guidance due to tax reform. Organic revenue growth slowed somewhat to 2% in F1Q18 from 3% in F4Q17. Margins increased modestly Y/ Y with gross margin up 20 bps and operating margin up 10 bps and tax reform added $0.06 to EPS. One surprise was that CEO John Greisch announced his intention to retire in F3Q18; the board has initiated a CEO search. We expect new products including the Centrella bed to drive accelerating revenue growth while cost reductions and portfolio management drive margin expansion. HRC shares remain at a discount to peers (2018E P/E of 18.5x vs. small/mid-cap value peers at 24.3x) and we reiterate our Buy rating." (1/26/2018)
