Apart from balanced growth across all operating segments, Henry Schein's gains in the United States as well as overseas raise optimism. We are also positive about the company’s purchase of a 60% stake in Sao Paulo, Brazil-based veterinary product distributor — ABASE. Moreover, a raised EPS guidance for 2018 buoys optimism. On the flip side, the year-over-year deterioration in gross and operating margin due to higher cost of sales and expenses continues to be a concern. Also, a tough competitive landscape and pricing pressure weigh on the stock. Over the past three months, the company has underperformed the broader industry.”
