Hologic lowers FY18 tax rate view to about 23%-24%

Primarily as a result of the recent passage of comprehensive U.S. tax reform legislation, the company expects its non-GAAP effective tax rate to be approximately 23% to 24% in fiscal 2018, lower than its prior guidance of approximately 31%. The Company expects its GAAP effective tax rate to be negative for the year, largely based on the revaluation of its deferred taxes, but this analysis is ongoing. "We expect to post solid first quarter revenue just above our guidance range, driven by strength in our breast health, molecular diagnostics and international businesses," said Steve MacMillan, Hologic's Chairman, President and CEO. "In addition, U.S. tax reform will allow us to achieve a lower effective tax rate in fiscal 2018, increasing our profitability while simultaneously providing opportunities to re-invest in the business to drive future growth."

Conviction Buy
Hologic positioned to outperform in 2018, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Isaac Ro believes Conviction Buy rated Hologic is well positioned to outperform the peer group in 2018 following 2017 underperformance. The analyst sees renewed management focus and stability, which should have a positive impact on the business and investor sentiment. Ro thinks Cynosure expectations have been sufficiently reset following the most recent earnings call and the core business should see a modest boost from product cycles and tax reform.

Canaccord names Illumina among top 2018 picks in Diagnostics and Tools industry
Canaccord analyst Mark Massaro rolled out his top 2018 picks in the Diagnostics and Tools segment after noting his 2017 picks returned 38% overall. He said he prefers larger companies in 2018 and said Illumina (ILMN) is a must own here due to its continued market dominance. The analyst raised his price target to $255 from $235 on Illumina shares. The analyst also recommends Exact Sciences (EXAS) as he expects its strong growth to continue. Massaro reiterated his $60 price target on Exact Sciences shares. He also likes Hologic (HOLX) and expects 2018 to be a bounce back year, raising his price target to $50 from $44. The analyst also likes Lab Corp. (LH) and believes it is likely to see an earnings acceleration and multiple expansion. He raised his price target to $190 from $175 on Lab Corp. shares. Finally, Massaro likes IDEXX (IDXX) for its new product launches and underlying global trends, keeping a $180 price target on the shares.

Buy
Hologic upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Derik De Bruin upgraded Hologic (HOLX) to Buy from Neutral and increased its price target to $50 from $42. The analyst was cautious on Hologic's acquisition of CynoSure (CYNO) last February and still sees risk in Q1, but said comps get easier for the rest of FY18 and expects shares to move higher if CynoSure rebounds. Further, the analyst said Hologic's core business is solid with potential upside, sees benefits from tax reform, views valuation as attractive, and expects the multiple to trend back to Med Tech peer levels.
