CROs should benefit from growth of risk-based monitoring, says KeyBanc

KeyBanc says that industry guidelines recently adopted by the EU should be a catalyst for risk-based monitoring technologies, or RBM. KeyBanc says that CROs such as QuintilesIMS (Q) and ICON plc (ICON) can bundle their risk-based monitoring software-as-a-service with their other services, generating efficiencies which can increase their profits. The analyst adds that the increased use of RBM should increase the CROs' gross margins and market share over the longer run. The firm raised its price target on QuintilesIMS to $96 from $90 and on ICON to $103 from $98. It keeps Overweight ratings on QuintilesIMS and ICON.

He lowered his price target range for the shares to $23-$25 from $32-$33. Evans this morning also downgraded INC Research (INCR) to Market Perform. He views PRA Health (PRAH), ICON plc (ICLR) and QuintilesIMS (Q) as share takers in the CRO space.
