Piper upgrades Intuitive Surgical, sees robotic surgeries going 'much higher'

Piper Jaffray analyst JP McKim upgraded Intuitive Surgical to Overweight from Neutral after taking over lead coverage from analyst Matt O'Brien. McKim also boosted his firm's price target for the shares to $600 from $540. The stock closed the trading day up $4.74 to $531.21. A survey of doctors from various specialties came back favorable for robotics and confirms that robotic surgery penetration is going "much higher," McKim tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst's analysis of Intuitive's current install base and recent trade-in activity point to the beginnings of an upgrade/new product cycle of older generation to fourth generation systems. He sees upside to the company's system placements in 2018 and 2019 coupled with "sustainable" 15%-plus procedure growth going forward.

Intuitive Surgical price target raised to $635 from $575 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Lawrence Biegelsen raised his price target for Intuitive Surgical to $635 from $575 on his 2020 EPS estimate, which represents a premium to the large cap medtech peers. The analyst notes that the company has filed a complaint against Auris Health, alleging that the company's Monarch endoscopy platform that received FDA 510k clearance on March 22 infringes on eight patents held by Intuitive. It further alleges that Monarch will compete directly with Intuitive's Flex platform that is awaiting FDA clearance for use in lung biopsies, Biegelsen adds. After his patent consultant reviewed the complaints, the analyst believes Intuitive's case may be weak, but is not likely to have an impact on the company given that the underlying markets are large and underserved with room for both competitors. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Intuitive shares.

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."

Citi more selective on Medical Device stocks into Q3 results
Citi analyst Amit Hazan is "much more selective than usual" on Medical Device stocks into the Q3 earnings season. While easier comps should bring "strong and stable" Q3 organic sales growth, recent currency volatility will limit both earnings upside and guidance raises, Hazan tells investors in a research note. He sees only Boston Scientific (BSX) and Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) shares moving higher on earnings reports. The analyst expects volatility in both Becton Dickinson (BDX) and Varian Medical (VAR), but would be an "aggressive" buyer of the stocks on any post-earnings weakness. Hazan is also more cautious on names like Edwards Lifesciences (EW), Baxter (BAX), and Zimmer Biomet (ZBH) into the Q3 prints.
