Varian Medical providing training and education to Brazil Ministry of Health

Varian has signed a software technology training and education cooperation agreement with the Brazil Ministry of Health and seven universities and science and technology institutions in Brazil. This agreement is part of Varian's commitment to partner with the MOH to increase the access to and quality of radiotherapy treatment in the fight against cancer in Brazil and across Latin America. The participating ICTs were selected from the group of candidates who responded to the MOH's call for entries and passed through a selection process conducted by Varian. Researchers from these ICTs will begin training sessions in June 2018 with Varian's global engineering teams in Switzerland, Finland and the U.S.

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. Varian Medical (VAR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Isaac Ro saying shares offer poor risk/reward versus MedTech peers.

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".
