Market Perform
Medpace downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Tim Evans downgraded Medpace (MEDP) to Market Perform saying the company has "considerably lower visibility than peers" on 2017 and 2018. The analyst prefers contract research organizations that are most likely to be share takers in an increasingly competitive environment. 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.
