Intuitive's Q4 results overshadowed positive China news, says Piper Jaffray
Overshadowed last week by Intuitive Surgical's "strong" preliminary Q4 results and 2019 procedure guidance were several positive updates in China, Piper Jaffray analyst JP McKim tells investors in a research note. These included the successful completion of a 63 patient SP trial by Hong Kong University, which highlighted the ability of the system to access hard to reach places and reduced incision, says the analyst. Further, he points out Intuitive's Xi system in China was cleared in December and that the company is now direct through its joint venture Intuitive-Fosun not only for Ion but for da Vinci products as well. McKim expects a ramp in Intuitive Surgical's placements throughout 2019 in China, which he believes should "further fuel above average" procedure growth in 2019 and 2020. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Intuitive Surgical with a $625 price target.

Piper remains buyer of Intuitive Surgical shares on 'undeniable' momentum
Piper Jaffray analyst JP McKim says this morning's preliminary Q4 results and 2019 procedure guidance from Intuitive Surgical were both better than expected. The "strong" 13%-17% procedure guidance for 2019 far exceeded expectations and the "strong" system placements is a great leading indicator for future procedure growth, McKim tells investors in a research note titled "Undeniable Strong Momentum In The Business; Remain Buyers Here." He believes Intuitive's momentum is "very strong" and remains a buyer of the shares. This "high quality franchise" needs to be owned in portfolios as surgeries shift from open to robotic, McKim contends. He keeps an Overweight rating on Intuitive Surgical with a $625 price target. The stock in midday trading is up 6%, or $30.89, to $513.88.

Citi makes four rating changes in Medical Devices, 'warning up' to J&J
Citi analyst Amit Hazan issued his 2019 preview for Medical Devices, which included four rating changes. The analyst upgraded both Zimmer Biomet (ZBH) and Baxter International (BAX) to Buy from Neutral, downgraded Medtronic (MDT) to Neutral from Buy and downgraded Abbott Laboratories (ABT) to Sell from Neutral. He also kept Buy ratings on Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) and Boston Scientific (BSX), but adds he's "relatively more cautious." Further, Hazan kept a Sell rating on Edwards Lifesciences (EW) and says he's "warming up" to Neutral-rated Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). The analyst expects "fairly stable" fundamentals for the group in 2019, with "modest slowdowns" in organic sales and earnings growth.
