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. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Varian ended the fiscal third quarter on a solid note, with strength in the core Oncology arm. Growth in EMEA and China also buoys optimism. In fact, management foresees tremendous opportunities in China for its radiation therapy products. Also, Varian’s proton therapy products pipeline is healthy. Management is optimistic about the recently-closed acquisitions of CyberHeart, Cancer Treatment Services International, Endocare and Alicon. A raised revenue guidance paints a bright picture. While expansion in the operating margin is an added positive, contraction in gross margin raises concern. Additionally, the U.S.-China tariffs have been affecting Varian’s top line for a couple of quarters now. Varian also saw softness in its Proton as well as U.S. and APAC businesses in the quarter. A narrowed EPS view adds to the woes." (7/27/2019)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "For its fiscal first quarter, Varian again outperformed on two key metrics: revenue and Oncology gross orders. Revenue of $741.0M topped consensus by ~$20M while Oncology gross orders of $716.5M was ~$60M above estimates. We like that Oncology gross order growth of +17% y/y CC was the highest in a decade and that the strength came from all regions. Still, with VAR shares trading near all-time historical highs, investors were likely seeking perfection. VAR may trade up Thursday, but with gross margins and operating margins coming in below consensus models, we think the positive stock reaction may be just a few dollars." (1/24/2019)
