Shire downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on Takeda merger
As reported earlier, SunTrust analyst John Boris downgraded Shire (SHPG) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target to $175 from $190. The analyst cites the changes in FX rates and Takeda (TKPYY) share price in shifting his price target, but expects the deal to close under the same terms on January 8th with no "meaningful hurdles" left to clear until then.

Shire approval another potential headwind for Allergan, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst David Amsellem views Shire's (SHPG) FDA approval Friday for its 5-HT4 receptor agonist Motegrity in chronic idiopathic constipation as another potential headwind for Allergan's (AGN) Linzess. The headwind is not necessarily in terms of pressure on volumes, but more in terms of the potential for a more challenging payer environment, Amsellem tells investors in a research note. The analyst remains cautious on Allergan given his concerns regarding the trajectory of the commercial portfolio as well as its pipeline. Amsellem reiterates a Neutral rating on the stock with a $164 price target.

AMD addition to Nasdaq-100 a 'small near-term positive', says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves notes the addition of AMD (AMD) to the Nasdaq-100 index announced late on Friday, which also contained the inclusion of lululemon (LULU), NetApp (NTAP), United Continental Holdings (UAL), VeriSign (VRSN) and Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) and the subtraction of Express Scripts Holding (ESRX), Hologic (HOLX), Qurate Retail (QRTEA), Shire (SHPG), Seagate Technology (STX) and Vodafone Plc (VOD). The analyst believes that the change - which will become effective before the market open on December 24th - could act as a "small near-term positive" for AMD shares, even though it does not change its fundamentals. Longer term, the analyst keeps his Outperform rating and $34 price target on AMD, but warns that the company is faced with a crypto currency downdraft in the Gaming segment and that he is also cautious on the hyperscale spending trends next year which he estimates in the low single digits. Steves adds that the notable investor debate is also taking place around the AMD server average selling prices, which he sees coming in around $5,400 - the higher end of the more bullish forecasts of $5K-$6K vs. the bears' estimate around $4K.

SunTrust analyst John Boris lowered his price target on Shire (SHPG) to $190 to reflect the impact of the USD appreciation against GBP while also lowering his FY18 EPS view to $15.11 from $15.18. The analyst notes that the investment focus for Shire falls on the November 20th vote by E.U. regulators on its merger with Takeda (TKPYY), adding that the company is on track to secure that approval and for shareholders to vote on the deal in January of next year.
