Quidel: FTC grants early termination of HSR waiting period for Alere deal

Quidel Corporation (QDEL) announced that it has received notice from the Federal Trade Commission granting early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, with respect to Quidel's pending acquisition of Alere Inc.'s (ALR) Triage B-type natriuretic peptide assay business run on Beckman Coulter analyzers. The acquisition of the BNP business by Quidel remains subject to the completion of Abbott's acquisition of Alere, as well as other regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. Quidel's acquisition of Alere's Triage MeterPro business is not affected by the early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, and remains subject to the completion of Abbott's acquisition of Alere, as well as regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

Overweight
Quidel upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk upgraded Quidel (QDEL) to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $50 from $35. The stock can continue to rise as investors digest how accretive the updated Alere (ALR) deal is and become more comfortable with an Abbott (ABT)/Alere deal close, Quirk tells investors in a research note. To reflect the amended deal agreement, the analyst raised his 2018 earnings estimates for Quidel by 64%.

RBC sees competing bid for Spectranetics as unlikely
RBC Capital analyst Glenn Novarro believes a competing bid for Spectranetics (SPNC) is unlikely and that Philips' (PHG) offer "signals a high probability of an on-time approval." The analyst notes Boston Scientific (BSX) is already developing a drug-eluting stent and a drug-coated balloon for peripheral artery disease and that Abbott (ABT) is integrating St. Jude while also soon closing its buyout of Alere (ALR).
