QuintilesIMS added to Priority Stock List at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo added QuintilesIMS (Q) to its Priority Stock List and removed ICON plc (ICLR). The firm thinks that QuintilesIMS' EPS can reach about $7 per share in 2020, driven partly by capital deployment and cost synergies. It predicts that the stock's annualized return will come in at 14% over three years. After The Wall Street Journal reported that ICON was bidding for Parexel (PRXL), Wells Fargo is unhappy with the news, saying that the deal would potentially create revenue dis-synergies and that ICON's interest indicates that it might be threatened by rising competition. Wells keeps Outperform ratings on QuintilesIM and ICON.
