What are Wall Street analysts saying about Stryker stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Stryker stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Stryker outperformed the industry in a year’s time. The company continues to gain from its Mako robotics platform, which has been the key driver of its core Orthopaedic segment. In fact, the company witnessed solid growth in Mako robot installations in recent times. Surging domestic sales is another positive. Moreover, solid performance in emerging markets and Europe paints a bright picture. Solid expansion in operating margin is encouraging as well. A raised guidance for 2018 buoys optimism. On the flip side, Stryker’s gross margin has been declining. Total debt on the balance sheet remains unchanged, adding to the company’s woes. The Trauma & Extremities business had moderate growth lately as it was affected by softness in the market and product supply issues. Stiff competition in the MedTech space is likely to mar Stryker’s prospects. " (12/5/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We attended at its Orthopaedics facility in on 11/8/18. We highlight some of our take-aways from the event below." (11/9/2018)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Adding Photonics to its Instrument Offerings This morning, Stryker announced the acquisition of Invuity (IVTY, Not a share in all cash, for a deal value of ~$190M. With TTM sales of $40.8M, the deal multiple comes in at ~4.7x, in line with previous SYK acquisitions. The IVTY portfolio of photonic illuminated retractors will add to Stryker’s product offering in a variety of areas such as nipple- sparing mastectomies, anterior hip procedures, as well as general surgery and other areas. We believe the IVTY products will compliment Stryker’s existing visualization and illumination product portfolio modestly. That said, while IVTY offered a novel technology, the company was challenged to independently gain broader adoption as a stand-alone technology beyond a specific subset of procedures where proper illumination was not achieved with overhead exterior surgical field lighting."
