Wright Medical downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien downgraded Wright Medical Group (WMGI) to Neutral from Overweight with a price target of $30.75, up from $27. Given the size of Stryker's (SYK) buyout and "distracted competitors," the analyst does not anticipate another offer will come in over-the-top. O'Brien, however, thinks there is likely to be a lengthy Federal Trade Commission review, and he expects divestitures will be needed. He believes there will be several interested parties in any divested assets, so he does not expect finding buyers will hold up the transaction. O'Brien likes the deal for Stryker, saying it provides the company with the best portfolio of extremities products in the industry. He maintains an Overweight rating on Stryker.

Wright Medical pullback brings good entry point, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien says the recent pullback in shares of Wright Medical represents a good entry point. After hosting investor meetings with management this week, the analyst recommends buying the stock at these levels. Wright has dismissed all but one of their troubled lower extremity distributors and started selling through its own direct reps in these territories as of August 1, O'Brien tells investors in a research note. With the upper extremities business still growing quickly and a commitment to the EBITDA metrics laid out before the issue surfaced, "there is a lot to like here," says the analyst. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $27 price target.

Stifel agrees with report saying Wright Medical may be evaluating options
Stifel analyst Mathew Blackman, who has a Buy rating and $30 price target on Wright Medical Group (WMGI), said that Bloomberg reported late Friday that Wright Medical had engaged financial advisers to explore a potential sale of the company. While the analyst noted that it is impossible to confirm that report, he sees "legitimate reasons to believe the company is potentially evaluating strategic options," including its significant share underperformance, lack of a clear CEO succession plan, and that the shares are "undervalued relative to the company's leading position in attractive end markets with a robust profitability profile."

Wright Medical buyout long part of investment thesis, says Cantor Fitzgerald
A potential takeout has long been part of Wright Medical Group's investment thesis since current CEO Bob Palmisano took over leadership of the company in 2011, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Craig Bijou tells investors in a research note. As such, he is "somewhat hesitant" to believe that Friday's report from Bloomberg regarding a potential sale is different from the prior occasions. With that said, the analyst says Medtech transactions over the last five years suggest a multiple of four-to-five times forward sales. Wright is an attractive asset, but there are likely several considerations for potential buyers, says Bijou, who keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $28 price target.

Piper says robotics entry can accelerate Stryker's spine implant pull-through
After Stryker announced the purchase of Mobius Imaging and Cardan Robotics for $370M upfront and $130M in potential future milestones, Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien said he believes that having a robotics offering should accelerate implant pull-through for the company's Spine division. The analyst, who also sees the deals helping Stryker to present a more complete offering to customers once commercially available, keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.
