What are Wall Street analysts saying about Stryker stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Stryker stock:
  • 1. 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." (9/12/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "SYK is acquiring Invuity (IVTY) for $7.40 per share (a 29% premium) or ~$190M of cash which is 3.4x consensus 2019E sales (vs. 6.4x EV/2019E sales for its medical supplies peers). IVTY makes disposable lighted instruments which increase visibility during minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures. We believe IVTY fits well with SYK’s Instruments business and note that IVTY’s products are applicable to a large number of surgical procedures. While the deal may be slightly dilutive in 2019, we believe that SYK can absorb this and still deliver on its 9%+ EPS growth target. And the deal should start to become increasingly accretive in 2020 and beyond." (9/11/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Stryker wrapped up the second quarter on a solid note, with earnings and revenues beating estimates. The company continues to gain from its flagship Mako Total Knee platform, which drove its core Orthopaedic segment. In fact, Mako saw increasing robot installations in the quarter. Surging domestic sales is a positive. Moreover, solid performance in emerging markets and Europe paints a bright picture. Considerable expansion in operating margin is encouraging as well. Higher R&D expenses indicate increasing focus on innovation. However, Stryker’s Spine business continued to see market softness and mid-single digit pricing declines. Further, supply issues in the Puerto Rico facility continue to plague the company. The slowdown of MedSurg’s sustainability revenue growth is another negative. Stiff competition is likely to mar Stryker’s prospects. Stryker underperformed the industry in a year." (8/8/2018)
  • 4. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". This morning (6/11), Journal reported that SYK made a takeover approach of Boston Scientific (Not Covered). Trading on both stocks was halted for a period of time during the day. BSX released an 8-K saying that it was aware of the story, but in accordance with company practice, it does not comment on market rumors or speculation. SYK made similar comment when we reached out directly to them. We view SYK’s potential interest positively, although as somewhat unexpected." (6/13/2018)
