Barclays starts MedTech sector with Positive view
Barclays analyst Kristen Stewart last night initiated coverage of the MedTech sector with a Positive view. The analyst expects the MedTech market to grow 4%-5% "for the foreseeable future" and believes the recent increase in price-to-earnings multiples in the space is warranted given the improving fundamentals. Looking ahead, she thinks relative P/E multiples "should be at least maintained." Stewart initiated coverage on 12 stocks, with Overweight ratings on Abbott (ABT), Boston Scientific (BSX) Stryker (SYK) and Medtronic (MDT). The analyst put Underweight ratings on Baxter (BAX), Edwards Lifesciences (EW) and Zimmer Biomet (ZBH).

Outperform
Abbott price target raised to $77 from $70 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Glenn Novarro raised his price target on Abbott to $77, saying that while the company is faced with "tougher comps" in Q3 relative to the 7.5% organic growth in the first half of 2018, some upside to consensus is a "distinct possibility". The analyst is particularly positive on the Medical Devices and Diagnostics segments potentially driving the upside thanks to the momentum of new products such as Libre and Alinity. Novarro keeps his Outperform rating on Abbott and also raises his FY19 EPS view to $3.30 from $3.27.

Subprime lenders weakness may be opportunity, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic attributes weakness in shares of subprime consumer lenders to news that U.S. Bancorp (USB) is re-entering the small dollar, high yield lending business after Fifth Third (FITB) re-entered two months ago. However, he views the OCC's push for banks to offer small dollar loans as a positive for online lenders and notes that the recent bank announcements are for loans yielding 40%-70%, which competes against products from Regional Management (RM) and World Acceptance (WRLD) but should not impact online lenders. Subprime online lenders include Enova (ENVA) and Elevate Credit (ELVT). Other publicly traded companies in the FinTech space include LendingClub (LC) and On Deck Capital (ONDK).

U.S. Bancorp capital deployment 'deliberate' and prudent, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Gerard Cassidy kept his Outperform rating and $61 price target on U.S. Bancorp after his NDR meetings with its management that highlighted the company's focus on growing its core deposits. The analyst further notes that while the bank expects a technology-driven industry consolidation, its investments have been targeted at technology initiatives and its approach to M&A has been "deliberate and cautious". Cassidy adds that the company's spending mix shifting from defensive areas like compliance and infrastructure and toward more growth-oriented areas like digital migration and real-time payment.

Comerica could be viewed as acquisition target, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Terry McEvoy raised his capital payout forecast for Comerica (CMA) for the second half of this year and for 2019 as he expects the company will announce an increase in the dividend and larger buyback plan after its board meets on July 24. Additionally, McEvoy thinks Comerica could be viewed as an takeover target once BB&T (BBT) and U.S. Bancorp (USB) are in a position to acquire banks. Stating that he likes both its fundamental and strategic outlook, McEvoy keeps an Overweight rating and $105 price target on Comerica shares.
