  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past three months, STERIS has been outperforming its industry. We are also encouraged by STERIS witnessing favorable underlying market trends along with new product and service offerings. The company's strong organic growth across specialty services, life sciences and applied sterilization segments also buoys optimism. Further, growth in free cash flow reserve is indicative of the company’s strong cash balance. The company has also made certain divestments and organizational changes, which are expected to better align with its operations.  On the flip side, a tough competitive landscape and currency headwinds continue to pose concerns.
