Varian unveils new Bravos afterloader system for brachytherapy treatments

Varian announced the Bravos afterloader system for High Dose Rate brachytherapy treatments. Based on over five years of in-clinic research, Bravos is an integrated system designed to improve the patient and clinic experience by simplifying brachytherapy treatment and providing greater workflow efficiency. HDR brachytherapy involves delivering radiotherapy by temporarily placing a tiny radioactive source directly into the tumor or other targeted area. Using an afterloader, clinicians are able to position the radioactive source in a needle, catheter or tumor-specific applicator following a pattern that has been designed to create a highly conformal dose distribution within or on the surface of the patient's anatomy. Once the treatment is completed, the afterloader safely returns the source to the afterloader. To simplify the treatment process, the Bravos afterloader features a touchscreen control and instinctive LED lights. The touchscreen provides easy access to patient treatment information on the afterloader, eliminating the need for the clinician to leave the room to retrieve patient and treatment information. The green, yellow and red LED lights on Bravos guide clinicians through the correct connection process of the transfer guide tubes. The green lights signal a proper connection and the yellow and red lights alert the clinician to areas needing correction. To help increase efficiency of the treatment process, Bravos features a customizable pre-treatment checklist on the touchscreen. Like surgical procedures, the customizable checklist allows the clinician to set a review process including a time-out for patient safety, and e-signatures for speed and accuracy. Bravos integrates with Varian's BrachyVision for treatment planning and offers interoperability with Varian ARIA(R) oncology information system. Bravos has received CE mark and FDA 510k clearance.

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).

Sector Perform
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.

Neutral
Varian Medical assumed with a Neutral at Baird
Baird transitioned coverage on Varian Medical to analyst Jason Bednar with a Neutral rating and $119 price target. The analyst said he would turn more constructive on the stock if valuation ultimately slips to levels at or only slightly above peers or if he gains confidence the revenue growth profile can remain healthy.
