Halper wrote:

“. We reiterate our Overweight rating on OMCL shares and maintain our 12-month price target of $80. After the close on the company reported 4Q18 results and provided better-than-expected 2019 guidance. Revenue was below our estimate. Non-GAAP EPS were nicely above and grew 30% y/y. The positive performance in the quarter appears to have been driven by completed XT implementations and strong performance of the XR2 and IVX Workflow products. The company’s profitability is improving due to the increasing number of platform deals. Importantly, record bookings in the quarter (+26% y/ y) benefited from earlier-than-expected timing of orders. OMCL also issued 2019 guidance that implies annual top-line growth of about 13%.”
