Buy
Bio-Techne initiated with a Buy at Argus
Argus analyst John Staszak initiated Bio-Techne with a Buy rating and a price target of $185, saying the company looks to be "on track for continued solid revenue growth". The analyst points to strong domestic and international demand for Bio-Techne products, along with added benefits from cost controls, lower corporate tax rates, and acquisitions. Staszak models a 16% long term earnings growth rate, noting that its premium 31.2-times forward earnings valuation relative to historical range of 22-33-times is justified by that project earnings forecast.

Hold
Bio-Techne downgraded to Hold on growth durability concerns at Deutsche Bank
As previously reported, Deutsche Bank analyst Dan Leonard downgraded Bio-Techne to Hold from Buy, stating that he increasingly questions the durability of its organic sales growth. While the recently announced deal to buy Exosome Diagnostics could ease these concerns a bit, Leonard also questions if Bio-Techne was really the best buyer, he tells investors. He maintains a $165 price target on Bio-Techne shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Molina Healthcare (MOH) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor saying he sees a high probability that Molina will retain its $2.2B 2020 Texas Medicaid contracts, but he does not like the downside risk heading into that Q3 re-procurement announcement. 2. Bio-Techne (TECH) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Dan Leonard stating that he increasingly questions the durability of its organic sales growth. 3. Horizon Pharma (HZNP) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Liav Abraham saying he sees limited upside to valuation at current levels following the recent upward inflection in the share price. 4. NuVasive (NUVA) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Bob Hopkins stating that he is skeptical NuVasive can consistently drive high single digit revenue growth due to robotics momentum in the marketplace and lack of a differentiated product. 5. Wesco (WCC) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Steve Barger saying its recent inability to translate increasing sales to incremental margin is reflective of the more competitive electrical distribution market it serves. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
