Merit Medical price target raised to $72 from $58 at Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien raised his price target for Merit Medical to $72 from $58 after the company announced the acquisition of Cianna Medical for $200M, with the deal expected to close in Q4 this year.

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).

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 $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.

Merit Medical price target raised to $73 from $67 at Needham
Needham analyst Mike Matson raised his price target on Merit Medical to $73 and kept his Buy rating, citing the company's $135M acquisition of Cianna Medical. The analyst says that the ability of Cianna's SCOUT device to identify the location of a breast tumor with an implantable radar reflector is "complementary" to Merit's biopsy business, adding that he expects Merit to improve Cianna's international distribution. Matson is positive on Merit's acquisition strategy, which he calls the "central part" of his bullish investment thesis.
