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).

Danaher creating value with Dental spin off, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Steve Beuchaw believes Danaher (DHR) is creating value with its Dental spin off, contending that the move will likely create a "RemainCo" with a faster growing top-line and higher margins, which should support multiple expansion. Investor feedback so far applies a Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) EBITDA multiple on Dental and a Tools industry multiple on the RemainCo, but Beuchaw believes this too conservative. Using his own free cash flow valuation, he could see the RemainCo plus Dental SpinCo being worth $120-$125 per share. Beuchaw raised his price target on Danaher to $122 from $120 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

Danaher price target raised to $107 from $99 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray raised his price target on Danaher to $107 after a "healthy" Q2 earnings beat, with "solid" organic growth across its portfolio. Dray notes that the announcement of a tax-free spin of the company's Dental unit by the second half of FY19 was a surprise but "makes sense" given the recovery of its organic growth and stabilization of channel destocking trends. The analyst keeps his Sector Perform rating on Danaher, stating that while the stock's sum-of-parts valuation is "not compelling", he is positive on the upside in the company's organic growth and capacity for more M&A.

GE 'negative surprise' raises questions about serious issues, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa said the timing and format of GE's (GE) CEO change announcement is a negative surprise that raises questions as to whether there are "serious issues at play." While the selection of ex-Danaher (DHR) CEO Larry Culp is a positive for investor confidence and the change brings the company a step closer to a real reset, the details on how potentially bad things actually are have not been shared and Tusa sees a dividend cut and potential equity raise as likely, he tells investors. The analyst maintains a $10 price target and Underweight rating on GE shares, which are up 97c, or 8.5%, to $12.26 in afternoon trading.

Mueller Water downgraded to Neutral at Boenning & Scattergood
As previously reported, Boenning & Scattergood downgraded Mueller Water to Neutral from Outperform.

The tax reform catalyst has passed while a "large and underappreciated" potential legacy liability remains, Giordano tells investors in a research note.
