PerkinElmer to sell medical imaging business to Varian Medical

PerkinElmer (PKI) announced its intent to sell its Medical Imaging business, a supplier of flat panel X-ray detectors that serve as components for industrial, medical and dental X-ray imaging systems, to Varian Medical Systems (VAR). The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the first half of 2017. "Combining our Medical Imaging business with Varian's capabilities will better position the business to support its customers and continue to innovate and develop new imaging systems. In addition, the divestiture will allow PerkinElmer to focus our investments and accelerate growth in higher priority areas," said Robert Friel, Chairman and CEO of PerkinElmer.

PerkinElmer still an underappreciated story, says UBS
UBS analyst Jonathan Groberg believes PerkinElmer remains an underappreciated story. The analyst said his buy thesis remains unchanged as management has executed well on its plan to streamline and invest in core businesses. Groberg reiterated its Buy rating and raised his price target to $61 from $56 on PerkinElmer shares, also citing expectations the company will be able to expand margins and the stock's compelling relative valuation.

Piper sees tax holiday as potential catalyst for Medical Diagnostics space
A repatriation tax holiday represents a potential catalyst for the Medical Diagnostics space, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk tells investors in a research note. Quirk notes that Becton Dickinson (BDX), Illumina (ILMN) and PerkinElmer (PKI) disclose cash held overseas and that all have highlighted share repurchases and acquisitions as priorities. He believes a repatriation event could be a catalyst for small lab deals. Acquisition targets include CareDx (CDNA), Genomic Health (GHDX), Oxford Immunotec (OXFD), Trovagene (TROV) and Veracyte (VCYT), Quirk tells investors.

Overweight
Pacific Biosciences a 'viable takeout target,' says Cantor
Cantor analyst Bryan Brokmeier says Pacific Biosciences' (PACB) shares are oversold after the company announced that Roche (RHHBY) has terminated their IVD-distribution agreement, whereby Roche had exclusive distribution rights of the Sequel into the clinical market. While the analyst acknowledges Roche's termination of the agreement is a clear long-term strategic negative, he says it is not nearly as much as the stock selloff is implying and notes that Pacific Biosciences is now positioned to sell into the clinical sequencing market directly or through other partners. Moreover, Brokmeier believes Pacific Biosciences is now "effectively a viable takeout target" for other companies, with Agilent (A), Bio-Techne (TECH), Illumina (ILMN), PerkinElmer (PKI), Thermo Fisher (TMO), and Roche among potential acquirers. He reiterated an Overweight rating on Pacific Biosciences' stock, but lowered his price target on the shares to $8 from $15.

No change in PFS proposed rates a positive for Varian Medical, says Baird
Baird analyst Jeff Johnson noted that CMS released CY 2017 proposed payment rates under the Physician Fee Schedule and said the flat proposed rate changes for a typical radiation freestanding center next year is a positive for Varian Medical. While the flat proposed rate is in-line with management guidance, will still likely come as a relief for investors, said Johnson, who keeps a Neutral rating and $84 price target on Varian shares.

General Electric takeover of Varian Medical unlikely, says Citi
Citigroup said General Electric (GE) exited the radiation oncology space in the 1990's and since then has had virtually no interest in getting into the treatment side of healthcare versus diagnostics. Further, the firm's analyst said Varian (VAR) is in the midst of spinning off their imaging business, and in theory, would make Varian a much more attractive target for General Electric. However, Citi said a takeover of Varian before the spin closing in December would make no sense by General Electric and reduces the firm's belief in today's speculation.
