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).

Varian Medical price target lowered to $115 from $120 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Brandon Henry lowered his price target on Varian Medical to $115, saying his model anticipates about 42c of EPS headwinds in FY19 coming from adverse FX and the impact of trade tariffs. The analyst also lowers his FY19 EPS view to $4.59 from $4.87 vs. the current consensus of $4.82. Henry keeps his Sector Perform rating on Varian Medical on valuation, stating that the 5% decline in the stock price since the White House announced its first tariff list has underperformed the 23% rise in the medical device ETF IHI.

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.
