On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on the today's top analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) initiated with a Buy at Sterne Agee CRT by analyst Jason Weaver, who put a $300 price target on shares. The firm has a positive view of what it sees as the company's "leading position and growth trajectory in energy, equity, and fixed income trading and clearing." The firm adds that the company's revenue mix is less volatile than its peers, while synergies and cost controls have made the company more profitable. Weaver also initiated Nasdaq (NDAQ) with a Buy rating and $76 price target, CME Group (CME) with a Neutral rating and $90 price target and CBOE Holdings (CBOE) with an Underperform rating and $56 price target. 2. Akari Therapeutics (AKTX) initiated with a Buy rat Canaccord. The firm set a $33 price target on shares and cited expectations for FDA product approvals and a level of underappreciation by investors for its shares. 3. Ralph Lauren (RL) initiated with a Buy and $115 price target by BB&T analyst Corinna Freedman, who believes Ralph Lauren will be successful in its turnaround and gain relevancy among a new younger demographic due to its strong vertical global brand house with a powerful heritage and sees significant category opportunities remaining in Women's and Accessories. Additionally, Freedman said International growth opportunities remain and Club Monaco repositioning is underappreciated. 4. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) initiated with a Sell at Standpoint Research and $94 target. 5. PACCAR (PCAR) initiated with a Hold at Argus. The firm said it expects challenging industry conditions to pressure earnings through 2017. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Shire Xiidra launch to 'significantly' expand dry eye category, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Jason Gerberry remains optimistic that Shire's (SHPG) Xiidra launch will "significantly" expand the category for dry eye disease brands, while not meaningfully eroding Allergan's (AGN) Restasis market leading position. While it's still early in the launch of Xiidra and payer access remains a critical variable, the analyst does not anticipate access being a major barrier. Gerberry reiterates an Outperform rating on both Shire and Allergan's shares.

Shire making right moves in dry eye market, says Jefferies
After hosting meetings with management, Jefferies analyst David Steinberg believes Shire (SHPG) is making "all the right moves" to make its dry eye drug Xiidra a potential $2B peak product in the U.S. Shire's Xiidra is competing with Allergan's (AGN) $1.4B dry eye drug Restasis, Steinberg tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not think Shire will have any problem exceeding the drug's consensus sales forecast of $200M for next year. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $262 price target.

Citi analyst Christopher Danely points out that Analog Devices (ADI), in its S-4 registration for the Linear Technology (LLTC) acquisition, revealed a competitive bid for Linear from another party. The analyst believes Texas Instruments (TXN) was the other party since it is the only other analog company with enough size to do an acquisition of Linear's size.
