Dexcom shares oversold after dropping 33%, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Danielle Antalffy says her analysis confirms shares of Dexcom (DXCM) are oversold after yesterday's 33% pullback. Pricing pressure following Abbott's (ABT) continuous glucose monitor could be less bad than feared, Antalffy tells investors in a research note. She believes payers assign at least some incremental value to Dexcom's alerts/alarms and the ability to prevent catastrophic hypoglycemic events. It's possible, if not likely, that payers continue to pay for Dexcom sensors at current $10 per day levels, the analyst contends. She believes the stock at current levels provides an attractive entry point. Antalffy lowered her price target for Dexcom to $57 from $85 and keeps an Outperform rating on the name.

Dexcom expected to remain significant player in diabetes, says BMO Capital
After BMO Capital conducted a survey of 27 doctors, Joanne Wuensch, an analyst at the firm, says the data indicates that "DexCom's (DXCM) CGM devices should have their place in the diabetes treatment paradigm" following the FDA's approval of Abbott's (ABT) competing Libre product. Specifically, the survey shows that overall CGM prescriptions will increase, while DexCom will maintain a 34% share of type 1 CGM allocations and a 25% share of type 2 allocations, according to Wuensch, The analyst expects DexCom's revenue to rise 23% next year and 18% in 2019. She keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

William Blair sees Dexcom retaining advantage over Abbott
William Blair analyst Margaret Kaczor says that while she didn't think Abbott's (ABT) Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring device would receive a dosing claim given the product's "inferior accuracy," Libre still lacks DexCom's (DXCM) alerts and alarms that proactively protect the patient from glycemic excursions. Libre's dosing may shift the competitive dynamic "modestly in Abbott's favor versus Street expectations," but more importantly, its approval should be market expansive as it creates a new type of glucose monitoring category in the United States, Kaczor tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes DexCom will retain a "material technological and brand advantage." Further, the company has a "rich product pipeline" including its own 10-day G6 sensor that is nearing approval, the analyst adds. She keeps an Outperform rating on Dexcom. Kaczor thinks the stock, at last night's price between $55 and $56, adequately prices in risk of share loss in the category. Dexcom in premarket trading is down 29% to $47.93.

After Tech Data's reported Q2 EPS that missed expectations due to lower than expected margins and the shares fell 20% after hours,BofA/Merrill analyst Param Singh blames the miss on "lower profits from a high margin rebate program, currency-related costs in its components business and increased competitive pressure.

The analyst expects the stock to rebound from the after hours level and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
