St. Jude Medical says Muddy Waters accusations are 'without merit'

St. Jude Medical CEO Michael Rousseau said that Muddy Waters accusations are "without merit" and are motivated to drive down the company's stock for their own financial gain. Rousseau said their self-interest to mislead doctors and patients demonstrates a "total disregard for patient safety." Rousseau added that the company is being "falsely portrayed."

St. Jude Medical can fix security deficiencies, says Credit Suisse
After speaking with "a developer of software used in drugs/devices" about Muddy Waters' security concerns regarding St. Jude's CRM system, Credit Suisse analyst Matthew Keeler says the consultant believes that the security deficiencies,can be fixed. According to the consultant, the deficiencies can be fixed using a five to ten person team working for about three months, Keeler stated. Keeler does not think that St. Jude's pending acquisition by Abbott (ABT) will be impacted by Muddy Waters' report. He keeps an $81 price target and Neutral rating on St. Jude.

Piper sees little reason to believe St. Jude deal will not close
Piper Jaffray analyst Brooks West says cybersecurity expert Mark Lanterman during a conference call yesterday refuted security claims by MedSec and Muddy Waters against St. Jude Medical's (STJ) pacemakers, defibrillators and Merlin monitoring system. Lanterman stated that there is "not much meat on the bone" to the MedSec claims and the quality of the analysis, West tells investors in a research note. He notes that Abbott (ABT) yesterday at a competitor conference earlier stated the St. Jude acquisition was progressing toward a close before year-end. The analyst sees little reason to believe the transaction will not close in the planned timeframe. West reiterates a Neutral rating on St. Jude.

Abbott unit sale does not impact Alere transaction, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford believes Abbott's (ABT) sale of its Medical Optics business to Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) does not imply an increased probability that the Alere (ALR) deal will close. After speaking to Abbott management, Holford thinks the proceeds from the sale are more likely to be targeted towards the St. Jude Medical (STJ) acquisition. He believes that deal has a higher probability of closing than Alere. Holford has a Buy rating on Abbott with a $48 price target.

Cowen says St. Jude advisory common for the industry
While Dear Doctor letters are never a positive, St. Jude Medical's (STJ) medical device advisory relating to a low rate of premature battery depletion in the high voltage portfolio is common in the Cardiac Rhythm Management industry, Cowen analyst Joshua Jennings tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees limited risk to St. Jude's franchise and still expects the takeover by Abbott Laboratories' (ABT) to close by the end of the year. Jennings keeps an Outperform rating on St. Jude shares with an $85 price target. The stock is down 1% to $80.19 in pre-market trading.
