Omnicell (NASDAQ:OMCL) was upgraded by Zacks from a “neutral” rating to an “outperform” rating in a report issued on Friday. The firm currently has a $32.00 price objective on the stock. Zacks‘s target price would indicate a potential upside of 20.80% from the company’s current price.

Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Omnicell reported better-than-expected second quarter results beating the consensus on both lines. A balanced segmental improvement was seen on the back of strong demand to upgrade to their G4 platform. However, we are concerned with the escalating product costs. We expect this to continue even in the coming quarter as an unfavorable product mix will lead to a drag in gross margin. Yet, the three-pronged strategy is contributing well to the company’s growth performance. While top-line synergy from the MTS acquisition was a major catalyst, we are also waiting for the successful completion of the impending acquisition of SurgiChem. Besides, several contract wins in the domestic and offshore markets are likely to boost organic growth as well. Accordingly, we upgrade the stock to Outperform. “
