Thermo Fisher has balance sheet to support Qiagen deal, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brandon Couillard believes Thermo Fisher's (TMO) balance sheet has "more than enough capacity" to support an $11B-plus acquisition and he thinks Qiagen (QGEN) "would fit reasonably well." Bloomberg last night reported that the two companies a near a possible deal. Further, antitrust implications, while less clear right now, are unlikely big enough to derail a deal, adds the analyst. His initial view "conservatively suggests" 5%-6% accretion to Thermo Fisher. Couillard thinks Qiagen could be worth $40 to $45 per share in a buyout based on historical deal comps.

Evercore upgrades Qiagen to Outperform after report of Thermo Fisher interest
Evercore ISI analyst Luke Sergott upgraded Qiagen (QGEN) to Outperform from In Line with a price target of $42, up from $31, following a Bloomberg report yesterday that Thermo Fisher (TMO) may be considering a buyout of the company. He thinks Qiagen business is "attractive" within the Tools landscape and he believes the company's operations have been appropriately reset following two quarters of misses and the CEO transition, Sergott tells investors. He also sees the possibility for acceleration given the incremental growth he expects from new products, the analyst added.

Buy
Thermo Fisher initiated with a Buy at Stifel
Stifel analyst Daniel Arias initiated coverage of Thermo Fisher with a Buy rating and $345 price target. The analyst says the company offers the "best combination of solid growth and reasonable valuation" in his initiated group driven by its "top-notch execution on internal improvement efforts" and has the potential to grow its organic revenue by high-single digits. Arias adds that he is eyeing a return to organic growth rate of 7% in FY20 against the more favorable comparison than the 6% in FY19.

JPMorgan sees Qiagen shares worth $43 in potential Thermo Fisher deal
JPMorgan analyst Tycho Peterson says historical comps and synergy opportunities imply a takeover price for Qiagen (QGEN) of $43 per share in a deal with Thermo Fisher (TMO). The analyst assumes Thermo would fund the reported acquisition with a mix of cash on hand and new debt. He sees potential for 75c-80c earnings per share accretion in year one, $1.06-$1.09 accretion in year two, and $1.53 accretion in year five. Further, Peterson feels the antitrust risk of a deal is manageable. He keeps an Overweight rating on Thermo Fisher with a $330 price target.

Hold
Qiagen initiated with a Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst Daniel Arias initiated coverage of Qiagen with a Hold rating and $33 price target. The analyst sees "substantial risk" given the nascency of the company's key products and markets being targeted. Further, he sees consensus estimates for 2020 as too high, and has a lack confidence in the ability to reach the company's "not-yet-withdrawn" mid-term growth target.
