U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray Initiates Coverage of HBIO with a Strong Buy Rating

BOSTON, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray Senior Biopharmaceuticals: Drug Discovery and Suppliers Analyst Tom Hancock today initiated coverage of Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq: HBIO) (8.15, ) with a Strong Buy rating and a 12-month price target of 17, based on a PEG ratio of 1.1 applied to our estimated three-year earnings-per-share growth rate of 40 percent and our fiscal earnings-per-share estimate of 0.38. Harvard Bioscience is a leading supplier of enabling tools for the biopharmaceutical industry. Harvard`s focus on addressing major obstacles in the drug development process has led the company into markets centered, as a result of acute industry demand, in the areas of drug discovery research and preclinical pharmacology/toxicology. Harvard Bioscience sells more than 1,000 products to more than 5,000 customers worldwide.

"We believe Harvard Bioscience is a leader in this market, a position it is leveraging by actively acquiring many of the smaller players in the space and consolidating its position," said Hancock. "Further growth potential comes from new technologies that eliminate or minimize the role of animals in such testing, which benefit from the broad desire of the industry to replace costly animal screening with in vitro assays whenever possible."

In his report, Hancock states that over the past several years, Harvard has made several key acquisitions in the drug discovery industry to expand the company`s product offerings in high growth areas. Harvard has moved into rapidly growing markets including protein sample preparation, proteomics and drug target validation and screening, most recently with the acquisitions of AmiKa and Union Biometrica. "In our opinion, the company`s ability to successfully integrate new technologies addressing growth markets differentiates this supplier, and makes it an attractive investment opportunity," said Hancock.

"We believe that Harvard Bioscience`s current strategy -- combining a technology base in key areas of the biomedical supplies market with strategic acquisitions in high growth areas -- will be rewarded by exemplary financial performance over the next several years," said Hancock. "Recent acquisitions should propel revenue growth to an average of 35 percent over the next couple years and we expect earnings-per-share growth to parallel or exceed revenue growth. Based on these projections, we believe Harvard shares currently trade at a significant discount to other profitable life science suppliers."

Look-up gerade ausgelaufen. Vorsicht !! Ein strong buy zu diesem Zeitpunkt ist wohl mehr als eindeutig.

Könnten sich dadurch aber hervorragende Einstiegskurse unter 7$ ergeben.

Hallo Woodawork,

schau doch mal in den Postings der letzten vier Wochen in meinem Thread zu Integra Lifesciences nach. Dort habe ich HBIO bei 10$ als Kauf empfohlen. Bin selber gut investiert und freue mich heute über weiter 14% Kursgewinn auf 14,20$. In meinen Augen ist HBIO eine wahre Perle, die über ein absolut sicheres Geschäft mit tollen Margen verfügt und langsam von den Analysten entdeckt wird, wie die Kaufempfehlung von Piper Jaffray in der vergangenen Woche zeigt. Mein Kursziel bis Jahresende sind 17$. Da HBIO aber in den nächsten Jahren um durchschnittlich 35-40% im Gewinn wachsen dürfte ist die Aktie eine klare langfristige Anlage

Grüße Kurspotenzial
