What are analysts saying about Zoetis stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Growth at Zoetis is being driven by industry-leading dermatology portfolio consisting of Apoquel and Cytopoint and new oral parasiticide Simparica. Sales of companion animal products are being further boosted by further penetration of new products in key countries outside of the U.S. such as Japan, Brazil, and Canada while growth in livestock portfolio was balanced across the U.S. and international business segments. However, swine performance is being impacted by competition from Fostera. The recent acquisition of Nexvet Biopharma will further strengthen Zoetis’ chronic pain management franchise. Shares of Zoetis have outperformed the industry in 2017 so far. However, Zoetis faces stiff competition from companies like Merck Animal Health (the animal health division of Merck), Elanco." (10/12/2017)
  • 2. 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)
