Sector Perform
Varian Medical product portfolio can drive further share gains, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Brandon Henry keeps his Sector Perform rating and $115 price target on Varian Medical (VAR), saying that the latest radiation oncologist survey findings were largely positive for the company. Henry notes the survey suggests "continued strong mid-single-digit market growth" and the ability for Varian's product portfolio to drive share gains for the company, even though the feedback around Halcyon and HyperArc systems was more mixed among U.S. practitioners. The analyst also contends that the survey findings imply Varian potentially benefiting from acquiring ViewRay (VRAY), as oncologists were "more positive on MR-LINAC adoption than proton therapy".

BlackRock (BLK) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst William Katz saying the "revaluation thesis" is now well understood. 3. bluebird bio (BLUE) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Leerink with analyst Michael Schmidt saying the company's clinical stage pipeline now is fairly valued while visibility into additional near-term sources of upside is limited. 4. Jagged Peak Energy (JAG) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Scott Hanold citing a tight frac service market in the Permian that lowers his projected growth outlook, saying the company is "more susceptible to frac service constraints due to its smaller scale and being a relatively newer entrant." 5.
