Credit Suisse says J&J 'unwelcome surprise' recall may also have positive signal

Credit Suisse analyst Matt Miksic said Johnson & Johnson's voluntary recall of a single lot of its baby powder was an "unwelcome surprise" for investors. However, despite the opportunity to take wider action, as the company did with Tylenol in 1982, J&J has chosen at this point to stand by its assertion that the baby powder does not contain asbestos, noted Miksic. On a related call, the company said the test results for the sample which triggered the recall are inconsistent with historical testing of the U.S. mine from which the lot was produced, which it said had been confirmed by third-party validation. Miksic, who continues to expect increasing clarity and reduced uncertainty around the range of potential liabilities facing the company, reiterated his Outperform rating and $158 price target on J&J shares.

Bernstein upgrades 'historically cheap' Johnson & Johnson to Outperform
Bernstein analyst Lee Hambright upgraded Johnson & Johnson to Outperform from Market Perform with a price target of $155, up from $148. The shares in premarket trading are up $1.94, or 1.5%, to $131. The stock is "historically cheap," currently trading at a 17% discount to its sum-of-the-parts and a 13% discount to the S&P 500 Index, Hambright tells investors in a research note. The analyst, who believes J&J will resolve its legal liability for $10B-$12B, says the shares reflect a worst case scenario with $50B of liabilities being priced in. Following discussions with legal experts, Hambright has a "hard time seeing the worst-case scenarios playing out." The analyst estimates Johnson & Johnson faces about $5B of liability for opioids, another $5B for talc, and $800M for Risperdal.

JPMorgan boosts Jabil target to $38 on key customer momentum
JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster raised his price target for Jabil (JBL) to $38 from $36 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. The analyst increased Jabil's price-to-earnings multiple to reflect positive momentum at key end customers Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Apple (AAPL), and to reflect near-term prospects for a hiatus in the trade conflict between the U.S. and China. J&J's Q3 results point to solid medical device performance, and stronger than expected iPhone demand for both the 11 and legacy models "should buoy positive headline momentum" heading into Apple's earnings at the end of the month, Coster tells investors in a research note.
