Illumina acquisition of Pacific Bio makes a lot of sense, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Doug Schenkel said Illumina's (ILMN) acquisition of Pacific Bioscience (PACB) makes a lot of sense, doesn't require a lot of cash, should be accretive fairly quickly and can generate meaningful upside to expectations. Schenkel reiterated his Outperform rating and $400 price target on Illumina shares.

Illumina 'plugs key gap' with Pacific Biosciences acquisition, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Puneet Souda believes that Illumina's (ILMN) deal to acquire Pacific Biosciences (PACB) "plugs an important gap" in the company's portfolio, expands its overall market opportunity and removes some competitive overhangs. While noting that the transaction is likely to be dilutive in the near-term, Souda sees the potential for a complete sequencing solution longer-term following the acquisition of Pacific's technology and believes there are no antitrust concerns since there is no overlap in the two companies' technologies and application base. Souda maintains an Outperform rating on Illumina.

Illumina acquisition of Pacific 'could be a home run,' says Piper Jaffray
The Pacific Biosciences (PACB) assets in Illumina's (ILMN) broader distribution network will be additive to the commercial roll out of the 8M chip, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk tells investors in a research note titled "PacBio Deal Story More Than A Short Read." Further, he believes that if Illumina can manage the deal with a fraction of the Solexa efficiency, "it could be a home run." Strategically, he thinks the acquisition "makes a lot of sense combining a good product with a great execution team." Quirk keeps an Overweight rating on Illumina with a $384 price target.

Illumina remains a top pick for 2018, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Mark Massaro noted Illumina delivered strong Q3 results, which affirmed his thesis that durable, global secular trends in next-generation sequencing appear to be here to stay for some time. The analyst noted the company's guidance was flat, but he continues to consider the company a "top pick" and "must own" stock for 2018. Massaro reiterated his Buy rating and $375 price target on Illumina shares.
