On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Accelerate Diagnostics (AXDX) initiated with an Overweight at JPMorgan by analyst Tycho Peterson, who said the company is well positioned to execute a successful commercial launch of the Accelerate ID/AST System and rapidly grow its install base. 2. Envestnet (ENV) initiated with a Buy at Jefferies with analyst Surinder Thind saying he expects continued market share gains for the company and views its Yodlee acquisition as transformational. 3. Pure Storage (PSTG) initiated with an Outperform at William Blair by analyst Jason Ader, who sees an attractive risk/reward equation relative to the company's growth profile. 4. PayPal (PYPL) initiated with a Neutral at Sterne Agee CRT with analyst Moshe Katri citing rich valuation and long-term potential risks to its dominant position in eCommerce. 5. Wells Fargo (WFC) initiated with a Sell at UBS by analyst Brennan Hawken, who believes risks to Wells' revenue growth and credit performance are not reflected in the current valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Piper still expects FDA approval for Accelerate Diagnostics in Q3
After Accelerate Diagnostics updated its investor deck with preliminary data from its FDA clinical trial, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk says he continues to expect FDA approval in Q3. The company announced "generally positive" preliminary FDA clinical trial results with AST data in line with the preclinical trial, Quirk tells investors in a research note. Accelerate's ID sensitivity of 94.6%, below the 95% endpoint and 96.6% from the preclinical trial, is unlikely to impact FDA approval given the "strong" AST results and faster turnaround time versus current systems, the analyst contends. He reiterates an Overweight rating on Accelerate Diagnostics with a $25 price target.

Piper sees limited impact from new European device tax rules
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk points out that the European Union announced it will issue new rules for medical devices and in vitro diagnostics in the near-to-mid term. The EU is looking to strengthen rules for clearing devices/tests for the market and increase existing device/test surveillance, Quirk tells investors in a research note. He believes the new rules should not inhibit well validated tests/devices from coming to market. As such, Quirk expects little impact to Piper's in vitro diagnostic coverage universe, namely Accelerate Diagnostics (AXDX), Becton Dickinson (BDX), Cepheid (CPHD), Hologic (HOLX), Quidel (QDEL) and Meridian Bioscience (VIVO).
