Abaxis reports after the close and should be a good indicator for Heska. ABAX is up over 12% since IDXX reported strong organic growth last friday. Even though HSKA forecast 1st Q with subdued outlook,I find it encouraging sector results are better than expected. HSKA CEO Grieve predicted a 22% increase in revenues for 2012 after intimating 18% in the 4th.qrtr. Raising the bar 4% seems to mean he's got confidence in the numbers? Where does sales outlook come from? From field reps who report their territories expectation. Salespeople recieve annual bonus on meeting/exceeding goals. Each sales rep makes an annual forecast for his, or her territory. New Heska salespeople have more in the hopper than we know about for mgmt to project a 22% increase. Salespeople can only offer products available. I doubt this years growth is expected to come from products yet to be announced. It is more likely we'll see new customers in 2012? Perhaps a Banfield/PetsMart, or an alliance with another retailer like FidoPharm,or an online web storefront. Heska has some news coming. We all expect growth in 2012, and the Abaxis report will reinforce.
