What are Wall Street analysts saying about Zoetis stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Zoetis stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Zoetis continues to maintain momentum on the back of growth from new parasiticide products (Simparica and 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. However, disease outbreak among animals is a material cause of concern for Zoetis’ livestock products. Such outbreaks may hurt regional or global sales of particular animal-derived food products or result in reduced exports of the same, due to either heightened export restrictions or import prohibitions, in turn, dampening demand for livestock products. Shares of Zoetis have outperformed the industry in the past year. Estimates are stable ahead of the Q4 results." (2/16/2019)
  • 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)
