Equal Weight
Cerner upgraded to Equal Weight share gains, IT Works traction at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley upgraded Cerner to Equal Weight from Underweight and raised its price target to $62 from $59. Analyst Ricky Goldwasser raised his topline growth estimates to reflect share gains outside the current install base and wins for the new IT Works contract that increases his confidence in Q2 topline growth of 7%.

Market Perform
Allscripts downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen downgraded Allscripts (MDRX) to Market Perform and lowered his price target for the shares to $13 from $15. The analyst sees "significant attrition risk" to the company's Sunrise base as his channel checks indicate Cerner (CERN) and Epic are winning the vast majority of share. Further, the Republican healthcare bill "may put even more pressure on hospital budgets," Larsen tells investors in a research note.

Overweight
Cerner price target raised to $72 from $65 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Lisa Gill raised her price target for Cerner to $72 after the Department of Veteran Affairs announced its intent to use the company's Millennium platform as its Electronic Health Record system replacement. Assuming Cerner is able to secure a prime contractor role, the economics could be seven-to-14 times the size of the Department of Defense contract win, Gill tells investors in a research note. She sees the contract as creating a "longer term tail to growth" and keeps an Overweight rating on Cerner.

Stratasys upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Kenneth Wong upgraded Stratasys to Buy saying the company's FY17 targets are achievable following its "strong" Q2 results. The analyst adds sector sentiment is low and that Stratasys continues to trade at a discount to peers. He lowered his price target for the shares to $29 from $32.

Stratasys guidance appears conservative, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen noted that Stratasys management reiterated their FY17 guidance, but said they see hitting the high end for revenues and operating margins, though he still believes the company's guidance is overly conservative given his expectation for accelerating product growth in the second half. The analyst, who adds that Stratasys' resellers that have indicated an uptick in system demand trends, raised his price target on the shares to $39 from $38 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Piper checks show 3D Systems had another challenging quarter
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen says feedback from 63 3D printing resellers indicates the demand uptick in Q1 has sustained in Q2 with system sales relatively in line with expectations and strong material sales helping profitability. Stratasys' (SSYS) results were "relatively balanced," but 3D Systems' (DDD) resellers expressed another challenging quarter for system demand, Jensen tells investors in a research note. The weakness at 3D Systems is directly correlated with the launch of HP's (HPQ) Jet Fusion printer, the analyst contends. He believes now is the time for investors to revisit the 3D printing space, preferring shares of Stratasys, Materialise (MTLS), Proto Labs (PRLB) and voxeljet (VJET). Jensen recommends avoiding shares of 3D Systems at current levels.

Vantiv upgraded on acquisition, risk/reward ratio at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel upgraded Vantiv to Buy from Hold. Analyst John Davis calls the company's acquisition of WorldPay "transformative" and "a strategic home run." He expects the stock's multiple to rise given the company's "longer term growth opportunities" and says that its risk/reward ratio is one of the most attractive of any stock he covers. Target to $85 from $63.

Vantiv shares viewed as good value at Baird
Baird analyst David Koning noted Vantiv responded to yesterday's negative report on pricing and still views the shares as a good value. He admitted pricing comparisons are difficult to assess as client size could be bigger and products could be better. The analyst has also stated in the past that pricing is a mild long-term industry risk, but noted it has been quite stable over the past 10 years. Koning reiterated his Outperform rating and $72 price target on Vantiv shares.

Cubic price target lowered to $50 from $54 at Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Ken Herbert lowered his price target on Cubic to $50 from $54 following the company's preannouncement that Q4 would be weaker than expected. The company also said it would provide conservative guidance for 2017. The company said the miss was due to customer timing issues but the analyst said it raises concern over top-line growth and margin expansion. Herbert, however, said a pullback would be a buying opportunity and he reiterated his Buy rating on Cubic shares.

Herbert believes Cubic is uniquely positioned with material tailwinds for its business and the company's business mix is favorable considering the funding priorities of the Trump administration. The company is optimistic about winning the NYC subway contract estimated at over $1B over ten years, added Herbert, who reiterated his Buy rating on Cubic shares.
