Cerner price garter raised to $85 from $75 at Cantor Fitzgerald
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper raised his price target for Cerner to $85 from $75 to reflect higher operating margin assumptions for 2020. As part of its agreement with Starboard earlier this year, Cerner committed to non-GAAP operating margin targets of 20% and 22.5% in Q4 of 2019 and of 2020, respectively, Halper tells investors in a research note. After a recent discussion with management, the analyst believes Cerner's efforts to improve operating margins are "progressing along nicely." He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Piper highlights four Healthcare Services names to own for rest of 2019
With Q1 earnings season nearly over, Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wieland highlights four of his favorite names to own for Q2 and the remainder of 2019. The names are Cerner (CERN), Teladoc (TDOC), Tabula Rasa HealthCare (TRHC) and Vocera Communications (VCRA). The analyst likes Cerner "more now that it has a targeted focus and agenda," likes Teladoc on the thesis that increasing utilization may drive upside to numbers, likes Tabula Rasa because of the increased margin profile of the business and its "strong" cross-sell opportunity, and he likes Vocera on the belief that Smartbadge sales will begin to accelerate in Q2.

UBS analyst Matthew Taylor raised his price target on Medtronic to $112 and kept his Buy rating after meeting with it CEO and CFO last week. The analyst notes that the management is "pleased" with the company recent performance as its last year's 11% earnings growth topped its long term target of 8%. Taylor notes that the growth has been driven by operating margin expansion and improving cash flows, with the management also "excited" about the company's product pipeline and "big launches" coming over the next 2 years.

Wells Fargo upgrades Medtronic to Outperform with $110 price target
Wells Fargo analyst Lawrence Biegelsen upgraded Medtronic to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the shares to $110 from $100. The stock closed today up $1.08 to $94.41. The analyst says the company's late stage pipeline will accelerate its growth into fiscal 2021. Further, management has done a better job over the past year of managing consensus expectations, Biegelsen tells investors in a research note. Medtronic is an "accelerating growth story trading at a steep discount to peers," adds the analyst, who sees the valuation gap closing as its growth picks up.
