Apple continues to dominate industry operating profits, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst T. Michael Walkley said Apple captured a strong share of the premium-tier global smartphone market during Q3 and believes they will continue to extend their leading market share position. He noted Apple will continue to generate strong profit share despite iPhone sales moderating in North America over the past several weeks. Walkley expects steady iPhone 7 sales will help Apple return to growth in Q1 2017 and reiterated his Buy rating and $140 price target on the shares.

Apple trimming March quarter component order forecast, says Rosenblatt

The firm's analyst now expects orders to drop to 40M-43M units from 45M-46M, and believes March quarter's iPhone shipment consensus forecast of 52M-54M may be at risk.

Apple procurement estimates suggest risk to next two quarters, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich said Apple's procurement numbers for the December and March quarters have been revised downward, putting consensus estimates for the two quarters at risk. The analyst is leaving his estimates unchanged, but notes his view remains below consensus. He said many investors are looking to 2018, when high retention rates and an aging installed base could drive significant upgrades for the next iteration of the iPhone. Milunovich reiterated his Buy rating and $127 price target on Apple shares.

Citi analyst 'perturbed,' downgrades AbbVie to Neutral
Citi analyst Andrew Baum earlier today downgraded AbbVie (ABBV) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $60 from $65. The biopharmaceutical company is trading down 2%, or 99c, to $59.52. The risk to post 2017 consensus estimates for Humira has "increased on almost all fronts," Baum tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees increased patent risk and competition from biosimilar Enbrel in Europe. He also believes AstraZeneca (AZN) and Acerta's acalabrutinib "looks like a better mousetrap" than AbbVie's Imbruvica. Baum is also "perturbed" by AbbVie management's recent "rich" acquisition of Stemcentrx. He prefers shares of Eli Lilly (LLY) and Bristol-Myers (BMY) to AbbVie.

Cerulean cash infusion gives chance to execute on programs, says Janney Capital
Janney Capital analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay said Cerulean's (CERU) collaboration with Novartis (NVS), which comes with a "modest" $5M upfront payment, and its $20M ATM facility with Aspire Capital, while "not ideal," gives management a chance to execute on three of its ongoing programs, the most important of which is the dose escalation study with Olaparib with partner AstraZeneca (AZN) that should have preliminary data in 2Q17. The analyst raised his fair value estimate on Cerulean to $1.50 from $1.00 and keeps a Neutral rating on the stock.

Citi sees Healthcare 'relief rally' after Trump win
Citi analyst Andrew Baum expects a "'relief rally" to drive near-term sector outperformance for names in the Healthcare space given the "inability of the Democrats to attain the Presidency, the House or Congress." Longer term, however, the analyst still sees "significant continued legislative risk" for pharma reimbursement. Baum prefers GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), AstraZeneca (AZN), Shire (SHPG) and Roche (RHHBY) among European majors and Bristol-Myers (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY) in the U.S.

Piper still uncertain on Clovis position after AstraZeneca data
AstraZeneca's (AZN) Phase III study of Lynparza in ovarian cancer "substantially improved" progression-free survival over what was seen in study 19, suggesting a profile at least similar to TESARO's (TSRO) niraparib, Piper Jaffray analyst Steven Breazzano tells investors in a research note. The new data confirm that the various PARP inhibitors are more similar than different, which bodes well for Clovis Oncology's (CLVS) own maintenance study, the analyst contends. Breazzano, however, remains the sidelines with respect to Clovis shares given the "increasingly competitive dynamic" in ovarian cancer and uncertainty in the company's position in the important maintenance setting. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on Clovis.

Nabors Industries price target raised to $17 from $12 at UBS
UBS analyst Angie Sedita raised her price target on Nabors Industries to $17 from $12 following the company's analyst day. The analyst believes the overall story remains on track as the company is gaining market share and there is modest pricing traction for high-spec rigs. Sedita also cited the company's new initiatives and its valuation being at a "sharp discount" to its peers, which she feels is unwarranted. Sedita reiterated her Buy rating on Nabors shares.

Goldman says to buy Nabors Industries for earnings and beyond
Goldman analyst Waqar Syed said Nabors will not only benefit from the recent pick-up in US land rig activity, but also offers an above-market growth opportunity from the expansion of ancillary services offered on its rigs. Nabors is targeting $250M in EBITDA from these services in 2-3 years from almost zero today, and should provide further color at its November 10 investor day. Syed expects revenue/margin momentum in Q3 to carry into Q4, given that the current US land rig count is 12% above the Q3 average, and continues to move higher, and recommends buying Nabors for earnings and beyond. The analyst rates Nabors a Buy and increased his price target to $16.50 from $11.50.

Xilinx can offset Chinese wireless weakness, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc believes that demand for Xilinx's products from Chinese wireless companies is diminishing. However, the firm thinks that the company can offset the negative impact of the slowdown with stabilization in North American wireless capex, ongoing China wireline strength, the joint strike fighter ramp, and the ramp of advanced node products. The firm sees the company as "an attractive M&A target." It keeps a $65 price target and Overweight rating on the shares.

While the analyst notes that feedback from specialists was mixed, he says they do see a role for Sustol in a subset of more advanced patients who could benefit from a longer-acting drug and/or flexibility of subcutaneous delivery. Nonetheless, Gerberry lowered his Sustol estimates to reflect the final product label and limited window of time to launch in front of generic, but kept an Outperform rating on the shares. He also raised his price target on the stock to $34 from $33 on valuation.
