  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Zoetis continues to maintain momentum on the back of growth from new parasiticide products (Simparicaand Stronghold Plus), vaccines, strong dermatology portfolio and the addition of the Abaxis diagnostics portfolio. The company’s companion animal business has been performing well. The Abaxis acquisition has strengthed the company’s presence in the animal health diagnostics market, a fast-growing portion of the animal health industry which should further boost sales. Moreover, Zoetis five-year collaboration agreement with Regeneron to research the use of latter’s monoclonal antibody therapeutics in animals and discover new veterinary treatments will further diversify the broad portfolio. Shares of Zoetis have outperformed the industry in the last twelve months. However, Zoetis faces stiff competition from companies like Merck Animal Health." (1/6/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating and raise our 12-month PT for ZTS shares to $105 from $98. The increase in our PT is driven by multiple expansion. Given the company’s durable business model and the positive outlook for macro factors, we think ZTS’s multiple will hold and upwards earnings revisions should drive shares higher. We think ZTS’s multiple will be supported by: 1) its durable business model, 2) positive outlook for macro factors, and 3) solid execution by management. Upwards earnings revisions could come from: 1) higher-than- anticipated peak sales for new launches, 2) better-than-expected operating margins in 2018+, and 3) M&A." (10/17/2018)
