Boston Scientific price target raised to $48 from $38 at Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst David Lewis raised his price target on Boston Scientific shares to $48 from $38 as he believes the company's recent deal activity reflects an accelerating M&A climate, maturing venture portfolio and upcoming access to $2B in annual free cash flow and does not suggest a weakening of its core business. His deal by deal analysis suggests management's assumptions for the contributions from M&A appear conservative, added Lewis, who keeps an Overweight rating on Boston Scientific.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. UPS (UPS) upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Patrick Tyler Brown saying he believes investors are underappreciating UPS' long-term Domestic EBIT and 2021 free cash flow outlook, which could be greater than $8B. 2. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie with analyst Srini Pajjuri saying he believes risk/reward is attractive and sees multiple catalysts ahead including a final settlement with Huawei in the near future, increasing probability of an Apple (AAPL) settlement, and a 5G cycle that is not fully reflected in consensus estimates. 3. Albemarle (ALB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst James Sheehan saying investors have driven down the price of the stock amid lithium oversupply concern on incorrect assumption that it is a commodity. 4. Univar (UNVR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Berenberg with analyst Thomas Burlton saying the company is improving its conversion margin and EBITDA growth while its cash generation is also getting better. 5. Boston Scientific (BSX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Raj Denhoy citing a survey of 25 U.S. transcatheter aortic valve replacement doctors to gauge interest in tBoston Scientific's Lotus value. While feedback was better for Edwards Lifesciences (EW) and Medtronic's (MDT) valves, the majority of respondents were still interested in trying Lotus and expected the valve to capture 16%-18% share of the market.

Buy
Boston Scientific price target raised to $41 from $36 at Argus
Argus analyst Jasper Hellweg raised his price target on Boston Scientific to $41 and kept his Buy rating, saying the company's outperformance over the past 3 months has been driven by its new product and acquisition news. Hellweg further cites the company's Q2 results showing organic sales growth up in all 3 of its sectors and across all regions. The analyst also notes that the stock price is trading in a bullish pattern of higher lows and highs going back to 2012 and believes that Boston Scientific is deserving of its premium valuation based on its growth outlook and profitability profile.

Strong Buy
Boston Scientific price target raised to $43 from $39 at Needham
Needham analyst Mike Matson raised his price target on Boston Scientific to $43 and kept his Strong Buy rating. The analyst cites the company's latest $500M bid Augmenix, whose SpaceOAR reduces side effects associated with prostate radiotherapy. While the company expects "immaterial" earnings impact from the deal through 2019, Matson believes that it will strengthen its Urology & Pelvic Health business longer term, with added potential "revenue synergies given BSX's NxThera acquisition and legacy GreenLight XPS system".

Jefferies boosts Teleflex, Boston Scientific targets after urologist survey
Jefferies analyst Raj Denhoy raised his estimates for Teleflex (TFX) and Boston Scientific (BSX) after conducting a survey of 50 U.S.-based urologists to better understand demand and utilization trends for Teleflex's recently acquired UroLift and Boston Scientific's recently acquired Rezum System. He found that UroLift is 15% of procedure mix and expected to reach 25% in two years, and that current mix for Rezum is 10% and expected to be 20% in two years. UroLift taking share from all other modalities including drug therapy while Rezum is gaining share from surgery/ablation, Denhoy tells investors in a research note. The analyst increased his price target for Teleflex to $300 and for Boston Scientific to $45. He keeps Buy rating on both stocks.
