  • 2/2/2018 – Veeva Systems was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “sell” rating. According to Zacks, “Over the last year, Veeva Systems outperformed the broader industry on the back of its splendid earnings surprise history. However, high expenses on the operational side are causing a drag on the company’s margins, partially dampening its revenues. Furthermore, intensifying competition and a saturating life sciences market are key concerns. The stock looks much overvalued at the moment. Further, volatility in foreign currency exchange rate is a headwind. On a favorable note, the company has delivered positive earnings surprise in all the past four quarters. We are encouraged by Veeva Systems’ consistent efforts in product innovation and launches through R&D. Growing global demand for cloud-based and vault applications also boost opportunities for the company. We are also encouraged to note the latest strategic partnerships of the company.”
