What are analysts saying about Zoetis stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Zoetis stock:

  • Guggenheim analysts commented, "We are raising our PT for ZTS shares after a 4Q beat and a lower than expected FX headwind for '17. The increase in our PT is driven by multiple expansion. We arrive at our new PT by using a DCF analysis. ZTS's solid execution this quarter increases our confidence that it can exceed consensus expectations for '17+ and sustain its 21x forward P/E multiple. Upward earnings revisions could come from margin expansion, M&A, and launches. Therefore, the sell-off today, which we think is motivated by profit taking, is overdone, in our view. We believe the weakness (ZTS down 3% vs. S&P down 0.14%) presents a good buying opportunity for the stock." (2/16/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Performance of Zoetis’ livestock business has been disappointing. Other headwinds include disease outbreaks and stiff competition in the animal health space. While disease outbreak among animals is a material cause of concern for Zoetis’ livestock products, the company continued to witness a decline in the U.S. sales of swine products in the third quarter of 2016 due to increased competition. Competitive pressures could adversely affect the company’s growth prospects. Pipeline setbacks are another major concern. Particularly, development and regulatory setbacks for late-stage pipeline candidates would be a major disappointment for the company. However, Zoetis’ companion animal business should continue to perform well. Further, its efforts on boosting operational efficiency bode well. Shares of Zoetis have outperformed the industry in the past one year. Estimates have been stable ahead of the company's Q4 results." (1/17/2017)
