Becton Dickinson price target raised to $280 from $250 at Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst David Lewis expects Becton Dickinson will guide FY19 revenue growth to 5%-6% during its upcoming Q4 earnings, which he believes "seems achievable if not conservative." Management is also likely to introduce revenue synergy guidance which should be higher, Lewis predicted. However, he thinks Becton's reported earnings guidance is likely to come in below the Street consensus. Lewis raised his price target on Becton Dickinson shares to $280 to reflect a roll forward to CY20 estimates and he keeps an Equal Weight rating on the stock.

Becton Dickinson upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Robbie Marcus upgraded Becton Dickinson to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $275 from $250. The analyst sees a "clear path" for Becton to exceed expectations for the second half of 2018 and fiscal 2019 now that the Bard acquisition is two quarters in. With sustainable 5% organic sales growth, a minimum of low-double-digit earnings growth "arguably a given for the foreseeable future," and sustainable 90% free cash flow conversion, Becton deserves a premium multiple even after factoring in its leverage, Marcus tells investors in a research note.

After hosting the company's management, the analyst believes that it has a good line of sight into key businesses and is confident in delivering 7% top-line growth in Q4.

Quidel could draw interest from a larger company, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Mark Massaro remains positive on Quidel (QDEL) after hosting meetings with management. The analyst cited rising demand for its new products and he expects the company to continue to take market share from larger companies Alere (ABT) and Becton Dickinson (BDX). He also believes the company could draw interest from a larger company, like the bid Alere got from Abbott. Massaro reiterated his Buy rating and raised his price target to $80 from $78 on Quidel shares.
