Merit Medical price target raised to $69 from $61 at Barrington

Barrington analyst Michael Petusky raised his price target for Merit Medical Systems to $69 after the company reached an agreement to acquire Cianna Medical. The transaction has the potential to support Merit's longer-term goals of building a portfolio of unique, high-margin products that can grow at above-average rates, Petusky tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Merit Medical.

Piper sees minimal impact to Medtech space from Hurricane Florence
Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien says he's heard investor concerns over the impact on Medtech companies with Hurricane Florence set to impact the Carolinas in the next 48 hours. While the analyst anticipates some delays, he believes the overall impact to the space will be minimal, ranging between 10-60 basis points of Q3 revenue for most companies in the region. On the supply-side, Teleflex (TFX), Baxter (BAX), Merit Medical (MMSI), and Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) have the most manufacturing and distribution exposure in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia, O'Brien tells investors in a research note. However, the analyst adds that many of these locations could be unaffected depending on the storm's path. He believes any hurricane-related weakness in the Medtech shares is likely to be transient and "potentially provide more attractive entry points."

Merit Medical price target raised to $68 from $62 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Bruce Nudell raised his price target on Merit Medical (MMSI) to $68 and kept his Buy rating, saying he is updating his model based on the company's execution of a "sound strategy". The analyst is positive on Merit Medical's "continual incremental innovation in its more commoditized product segments coupled with a gradual movement into higher margin therapeutic areas". Nudell also expects the company to benefit from hospitals looking to diversify away from single sourcing of products after a recent supply-shortage related shipment halt from Terumo (TRUMY).

Merit Medical price target raised to $61 from $50 at Barrington
Barrington analyst Michael Petusky raised his price target on Merit Medical shares to $61 from $50 after the company's Q2 revenue topped his "Street-high" estimate and the company increased its FY18 guidance, stating that Merit "clearly continues to have a lot of momentum." Management still sees gross margins improving in 2018, but not at the level previously expected, Petusky additionally noted. He maintains an Outperform rating on Merit Medical.
