Becton Dickinson raises FY17 adj. EPS view $9.42-$9.47 from $9.35-$9.45

Consensus $9.45. As reported, the company now expects full fiscal year 2017 revenues to decrease 3.0 to 3.5 percent, primarily due to the aforementioned divestiture of the Respiratory Solutions business. This is an improvement from previously issued guidance of a 3.5 to 4.0 percent decrease in revenues and is due to a reduction in the estimated negative impact from foreign currency. The company continues to estimate that revenues for the full fiscal year 2017 will increase 4.5 to 5.0 percent on a comparable, currency-neutral basis that excludes Respiratory Solutions and other divestitures that closed in fiscal year 2016.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Doug Leggate saying Cabot 's gross Marcellus takeaway capacity will increase to 3.7 bcf/d from 2bcf/d by end of 2018 and positioned to increase free cash flow to $2B from $872M per year for 25 years. 2. Becton Dickinson (BDX) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Lawrence Keusch saying he believes it should be a core holding based an an above average outlook for 5%-6% organic growth and mid-teens earnings increases with further potential upside. 3. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham. 4. ManTech (MANT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Joseph Vafi saying he sees "company-specific and secular catalysts" driving improving fundamentals and upward revisions to consensus estimates. 5. D.R. Horton (DHI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with the firm saying it is uniquely positioned to capitalize on an unexpectedly tight and historically low existing home inventories, while new home demand remains broadly resilient despite rising prices.

Becton Dickinson upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Lawrence Keusch upgraded Becton Dickinson to Strong Buy from Outperform and increased its price target to $226 from $210 and believes it should be a core holding based an an above average outlook for 5-6% organic growth and mid-teens earnings increases with further potential upside. The analyst views the C.R. Bard acquisition as a sold strategic fit with an accelerating growth profile given its deep R&D pipeline and sizeable addressable market opportunities. Post close, he sees strong free cash flow generation of $10B from 2018-2020, allowing the company to rapidly deleverage to 3x in 2020 from 4.7x.
