Company Report

Agilent focuses on providing tools to analyze the structural properties of various chemicals, molecules, and cells. The company is one of the leading providers of chromatography and mass spectrometry tools, which have applications in a variety of end markets, including the healthcare, chemical, food, and environmental fields. While healthcare-related applications, including clinical diagnostics, remain Agilent’s largest end market, Agilent generates about half of its sales from nonhealthcare fields.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent Technologies delivered fiscal first-quarter results that were better than management's targets. However, it merely maintained its outlook for fiscal 2024. Our view for 2024 remains slightly more optimistic on the top line and at the high end of the bottom line compared with management's target ranges. At first glance, we do not anticipate changing our $151 fair value estimate. The shares appear to be rising closer to our fair value estimate in after-hours trading on these strong quarterly results.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent delivered fourth-quarter results that were better than management's targets but reflected weakness in the typically robust biopharma end market in China. Management expects those challenges to continue but not deteriorate further in fiscal 2024, and its initial outlook for revenue and adjusted EPS looks moderately below our previous view. At first glance, we do not anticipate changing our $151 fair value estimate, though, considering much higher than expected cash flows recently. Also, Agilent's long-term prospects remain intact, and Agilent shares continue to look moderately undervalued to us.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent delivered third-quarter results that were slightly better than expected, but they reflected weakness in the typically robust biopharma end market, which looks likely to continue especially in China and caused management to reduce its 2023 guidance for sales and adjusted EPS. While we have tinkered with our near-term assumptions slightly after this announcement, those changes did not change our $151 fair value estimate, especially considering that management also raised the key driver of our valuation—free cash flow—materially for 2023. Overall, we think Agilent's long-term prospects remain intact, and Agilent shares continue to represent a growth at a reasonable price opportunity.
Stock Analyst Note

Life science toolmakers that enable drug production operate attractive businesses for two major reasons that investors often find compelling. First, regulation of the drug manufacturing process creates highly durable switching costs for end users and long potential revenue streams for life science toolmakers. Second, life science firms often benefit from broad exposure to biopharmaceutical growth without taking on much product-specific risk.
Company Report

After Agilent was spun out from Hewlett Packard in 1999 and divested its electronic measurement business (Keysight Technologies) in November 2014, Agilent focuses on providing tools to analyze the structural properties of various chemicals, molecules, and cells. Agilent is one of the leading providers of chromatography and mass spectrometry tools, which have applications in a variety of end markets, including the healthcare, chemical, food, and environmental fields. While healthcare-related applications, including clinical diagnostics, remain Agilent’s largest end market, Agilent generates about half of its sales from nonhealthcare fields.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent released second-quarter results that were slightly above expectations, but given ongoing biopharma market uncertainty, management reduced some parts of its 2023 guidance a bit. While we may tinker with our some of our near-term assumptions slightly after this announcement, importantly, management kept guidance intact for the key driver of our $127 fair value estimate—cash flows. Overall, we think Agilent's long-term prospects remain intact, too, and with Agilent shares trading near our current fair value estimate, shares appear to represent a growth at a reasonable price opportunity.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent released first-quarter results that pushed its bottom-line results up toward our expectations for 2023. Management has raised its 2023 guidance mildly, although our adjusted EPS forecast remains above the current projected range. While we have tinkered with our near-term assumptions after this announcement, our $127 fair value estimate has not changed materially.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent released strong fourth-quarter results that helped it exceed our expectations for fiscal 2022. Management also delivered 2023 guidance above our prior expectations. Considering those strong trends ($5 of increase) and recently generated cash flows ($7), we are raising our fair value estimate to $127 per share from $115 previously.

Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent released strong fiscal third-quarter results, and management slightly increased its 2022 bottom-line outlook again. While the firm appears to be tracking a bit above our expectations for the full year, the mild outperformance does not appear material enough to change our $115 fair value estimate. Agilent shares still appear slightly rich.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent released solid second-quarter results, and management slightly increased its fiscal 2022 bottom-line outlook. We are raising our fair value estimate to $115 per share from $107 primarily to account for cash flows generated in the past couple quarters and slightly higher 2022 profit expectations.

While healthcare-related applications, including clinical diagnostics, remain Agilent’s largest end market, Agilent generates about nearly half of its sales from nonhealthcare fields.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent released fourth-quarter results that roughly met our expectations. We are not changing our fair value estimate and continue to view shares as overvalued. Management's guidance for fiscal 2022 looks more in line with our long-term expectations for Agilent versus its inflated 2021 results, as COVID-19-related tailwinds are turning into headwinds.

Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent reported third-quarter results that beat expectations on the top and bottom lines, and management increased its outlook for fiscal 2021 again after increasing guidance the past two quarters. We may moderately boost our fair value estimate based on these trends. However, shares still appear rich to us.
Stock Analyst Note

Wide-moat Agilent reported second-quarter results that significantly beat FactSet consensus on the top and bottom lines. As a result, management increased its outlook for fiscal 2021 again after increasing guidance last quarter, too. We have raised our fair value estimate to $100 per share from $95 based primarily on these stronger-than-expected trends.
