What are Wall Street analysts saying about VeriFone Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about VeriFone Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "VeriFone is well-poised to benefit from its dominant position in the electronic payment systems and services market. The company has a robust product portfolio along with several mobile and portable point of sale (POS) solutions. Emergence and adoption of new payment methods like contactless, NFC, and mobile cloud-based payments are other catalysts for Verifone. We are also optimistic about VeriFone’s growth opportunities from its strategic acquisitions and its operations in under penetrated countries. However, declining revenues, divestures and buyout-related woes continue to bother VeriFone. A leveraged balance sheet is another headwind. Introduction of new market entrants and latest technologies is making the market more competitive. In fact, in the past six months, the stock underperformed its industry’s growth." (4/11/2018)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Guidance Light, Setting Higher Bar for 2H18 Execution VeriFone Systems’ (PAY) execution on its business strategy of deploying new payment devices across global markets and building out its Services platform has played out in fits and starts, and the 1Q18 report that the company released today after the market close was no exception. PAY posted 1Q18 non-GAAP earnings per share and net revenue that were better than the guidance it had provided in December, and it reiterated its FY18 outlook. However, the 2Q18 guidance that management offered was light relative to the Street consensus." (3/11/2018)
