Iqvia upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs analyst Robert Jones added Iqvia Holdings (IQ) to his firm's Americas Conviction List while keeping a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $151 from $152. He sees "several drivers of upside" in 2019 against a "very healthy" industry backdrop. Iqvia's backlog growth along with an industry leading book-to-bill indicate its offering is resonating in the market, Jones tells investors in a research note. He believes the company's upcoming commentary accompanying 2019 guidance could serve as a potential catalyst for the shares. Jones is also positive on shares of Icon (ICLR).

Neutral
Iqvia price target raised to $131 from $97 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wieland raised his price target on Iqvia (IQV) to $131 after its Q3 earnings beat, saying that in spite of the FX and ASC606 accounting-related headwinds, the company also posted in-line revenues. The analyst cited cost containment supporting margin upside along with a "raise on profitability metrics". Wieland is also positive on Iqvia expanding its partnership with Salesforce (CRM) which is "designed to provide technology to make clinical trials more efficient". The analyst keeps his Neutral rating, adding that his new price target is also based on the methodology transitioning to a PE multiple from Enterprise Value / EBITDA one to reflect the company's buyback program.

Iqvia price target raised to $140 from $130 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Jack Meehan raised his price target for Iqvia to $140 and reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares following yesterday's "solid" quarter. Despite the "muted" stock reaction for following earnings, there were "several encouraging leading indicators" with the Q3 results that bode well for growth heading into 2019, Meehan tells investors in a research note.

Iqvia price target raised to $137 from $129 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst George Hill raised his price target on Iqvia to $137 and kept his Outperform rating after its Q3 earnings came in at the high end of guidance with higher outlook for earnings expected in FY18. The analyst adds that the most encouraging development was the management's maintained view of the company's next-gen clinical trials solution selling well as well as its expected R&D revenue growth closing the "gap with bookings" by the end of 2019.

KeyBanc sees Amazon entry having little near-term impact on HCIT space
The announcement that Amazon.com (AMZN) is developing Software-as-a-Service analytical tools for the U.S. healthcare industry called Amazon Comprehend Medical will likely bring a "lot of noise, but little real, near-term financial impact" to the publicly traded Healthcare Technology and Services space, KeyBanc analyst Donald Hooker tells investors in a research note. He believes companies potentially most relevant to Amazon's announcement include Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (MDRX), Cerner (CERN), Evolent Health (EVH), Inovalon Holdings (INOV), IQVIA Holdings (IQV), Medidata Solutions (MDSO), PRA Health Sciences (PRAH), Premier (PINC), and Teladoc Health (TDOC). Hooker argues that any potential success by mega-tech companies, such as Amazon, to develop useful SaaS analytical tools "could actually empower traditional HCIT and biopharma outsourcing companies." Further, he sees a number of "unique barriers" for "big data" solutions in clinical decision support and population health management.

Evercore ISI upgrades Icon to Outperform after M&A fears fail to materialize
As previously reported, Evercore ISI analyst Ross Muken upgraded Icon to Outperform from In Line, stating that his prior concerns of an uptick in biopharma M&A, notably among the company's largest customers, clearly hasn't played out. With that fear likely de-risked, he said he can turn back to fundamentals, "which are pretty awesome." CRO industry growth remains in the mid-single digits and he expects Icon to grow above this rate, Muken tells investors. However, he lowered his price target on Icon shares to $156 from $161.
