Here's Why You Should Invest in Bio-Rad (BIO) Stock Now

Nov 25, 2021

Investors are optimistic about Bio-Rad (BIO) on strength in its key product lines and raised 2021 guidance. This story originally appeared on Zacks Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. BIO has been gaining from strength in its key product lines across major geographic areas. Further, an uptick in the Clinical Diagnostics arm in the third quarter of 2021 buoys optimism on the stock. However, downsides may result from foreign exchange fluctuations and a difficult pricing scenario. - Zacks Over the past year, shares of this Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) company have outperformed the industry . The company has gained 40.8% against the 2.9% fall of the industry and 30% rise of the S&P 500. The renowned manufacturer and global supplier of clinical diagnostics and life science research products has a market capitalization of $22.32 billion. The company projects 45.7% growth for the current year. The company surpassed estimates in the trailing four quarters, the average surprise being 71.34%. Key Drivers Segmental Growth: Bio-Rad witnessed sales growth of 13.9% at CER and reported growth of 15.3% for its Life Science segment in the third quarter of 2021. The year-over-year sales growth in the third quarter was driven mainly by increases in Droplet Digital PCR products and excluding COVID-related sales. The company’s core qPCR business also experienced robust growth driven by strong uptake of the newer generation CFX Opus platform. Further, Bio-Rad witnessed constant currency sales growth of 13.7% and reported growth of 15.5% at its Clinical diagnostics segment. A recovery in routine testing drove the year-over-year growth. The company also started to see a recovery of demand for non-COVID businesses. Clinical Diagnostics Continues to Gain Momentum: Bio-Rad’s third-quarter 2021 clinical diagnostics sales were largely driven by a recovery of routine testing. During the third quarter, the Diagnostics Group posted growth across its product lines.

Raised Guidance: Bio-Rad has updated its guidance for full-year 2021. The company now anticipates revenue growth of 12-13% for full-year 2021 compared with the previous guidance of 10-10.5%. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the same is pegged at $2.84 billion. Downsides Exposure to Foreign Currency:  Bio-Rad derives more than 50% of its revenues from international markets, which exposes it to the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency.
