Agilent expects the acquisition will be accretive to non-GAAP EPS, contributing 2c-4c for FY20, and compounding growth thereafter.

Buy
Agilent should be bought on today's selloff, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brandon Couillard lowered his price target for Agilent Technologies to $85 from $90 following the company's "rare" miss in fiscal Q2. While the China food market recovery is taking longer, the analyst says he still sees this as a question of when and not if. Despite the "messy" "quarter and lower core growth outlook, Agilent still has a "clear pathway" to re-accelerating growth in fiscal 2020, Couillard tells investors in a research note. He recommends buying the stock on today's selloff and keeps a Buy rating on the name.
