What are Wall Street analysts saying about Varian Medical Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Varian Medical Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Varian continues to gain from its core Oncology Systems segment, which saw solid overseas growth, especially in EMEA and China. In fact, management foresees tremendous opportunities in China owing to the recent tariff exclusions. Gross orders surged in the quarter. Management is optimistic about the recently-closed acquisitions of CyberHeart, Cancer Treatment Services International, Endocare and Alicon. Expansion in gross margin is an added positive. Varian retained its outlook for fiscal 2020. On the flip side, the Proton Solutions unit was weak in the quarter. Moreover, Varian saw some softness in orders in Japan. Economic stagnation due to coronavirus outbreak has been another dampener. Reflective of these, the stock has underperformed the industry in a year’s time. Varian exited the fiscal first quarter on a weak note." (3/31/2020)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We strongly suspect that radiation that is delivered via the Ethos system will receive very high marks from both clinicians and patients alike. Ethos currently has its CE Mark while a 510(k) regulatory clearance in the U.S. is still pending." (9/23/2019)
