Agilent acquires ACEA Bioscience for $250M in cash

Agilent Technologie announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire privately-owned ACEA Biosciences Inc. , a developer of cutting-edge cell analysis instruments for life science research and clinical diagnostics, for $250M in cash. Since its inception in 2002, ACEA has launched two ground-breaking, highly differentiated platforms. ACEA is revolutionizing the field of flow cytometry with its high-performance, customizable line of NovoCyte benchtop flow cytometers. ACEA's xCELLigence instruments enable label-free, real-time monitoring of cell growth, cell function, and cellular responses to a variety of treatments, providing scientists information-rich cellular assays. ACEA also has a CFDA approved and CE-IVD labelled cytometer configuration. ACEA's clinical flow cytometer, currently commercialized primarily in China, brings a unique opportunity with Agilent's Reagent Partnership business within Agilent's Diagnostics and Genomics Group which provides reagents for flow cytometry. ACEA instruments are used worldwide in both academia and industry across a wide range of life science applications from basic research to clinical diagnostics including preclinical drug discovery and development, toxicology & safety pharmacology, and various disease studies.

Outperform
Agilent recent weakness a buying opportunity, says Baird
Baird analyst Catherine Ramsey Schulte attended Agilent's analyst day and said her positive outlook on the company remains unchanged. She continues to expect strong core growth and margin expansion to help drive above market performance over the next several years. Schulte said she would use recent weakness as a buying opportunity and reiterated her Outperform rating and $77 price target on Agilent shares.

Underweight
JPMorgan downgrades Varian to Underweight following period of restriction
JPMorgan analyst Tycho Peterson downgraded Varian Medical Systems (VAR) to Underweight from Neutral following a period of restriction. Persistent order growth volatility, a "sluggish" end market and in the near-term and risk from the U.S.-China trade war weigh on the analyst's longer-term outlook for the stock. Varian has a dominant franchise but a mature industry and premium valuation are hard to overlook, Peterson tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees better risk/rewards in other parts of his coverage universe, including tool names Agilent (A), Danaher (DHR) and Thermo Fisher (TMO).

Conviction Buy
Agilent upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Patrick Donnelly added Agilent Technologies (A) to his firm's Conviction List and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst upped his price target for the stock to $82 from $77. Donnelly names Agilent his top pick in Life Science Tools ahead of Q3 earnings season. Agilent provides a "a rare Tools opportunity" to own an "accelerating growth story at a reasonable valuation," Donnelly tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst sees "untapped capital allocation upside" that could potentially be unlocked by the new CFO.

Neutral
Thermo Fisher downgraded to Neutral from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Patrick Donnelly downgraded Thermo Fisher (TMO) to Neutral from Conviction Buy with an unchanged price target of $250. The analyst coupled the downgrade with an upgrade of Agilent Technologies (A) to Conviction Buy from Buy. The analyst believes his thesis on Thermo Fisher, centering around deal-driven accelerating growth and margin expansion, is more appropriately reflected in the current valuation. Further, the company faces a difficult set of comps starting in Q4 of this year, Donnelly tells investors in a research note. The analyst remains positive on Thermo Fisher's fundamentals, but prefers the set-up for Agilent at current valuation levels.
