Merit Medical price target lowered to $31 from $59 at Barrington
Barrington analyst Michael Petusky lowered his price target for Merit Medical Systems to $31 from $59 saying the company's profitability in Q3 fell well short and its guidance was reduced significantly. Merit's "somewhat disappointing" revenue growth rate was less to blame for the quarter's profitability miss than the company's lack of discipline regarding operating expenses, Petusky tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

SeaSpine, Glaukos double-downgraded to Underweight at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Lawrence Biegelsen double-downgraded Glaukos (GKOS) and SeaSpine (SPNE) to Underweight from Overweight as part of his broader Medical Technology industry research note. The analyst expects the medical device sector to be part of the "politics of healthcare" storm heading into next year's elections given the focus on drug pricing and increasing access to healthcare, even though he sees the broader risks as "manageable" for another year with "medtech tax" likely to be suspended. Biegelsen also cuts his rating on Merit Medical (MMSI) to Underweight from Equal Weight, but offers a positive view on Medtronic (MDT), citing its accelerating growth story trading at a discount relative to peer valuation and sees Teleflex (TFX) as "among the best positioned" in his coverage with UroLift as its key growth accelerator.

Merit Medical downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Lawrence Biegelsen downgraded Merit Medical Systems to Underweight from Equal Weight with a $26 price target as part of his broader Medical Technology industry research note. Biegelsen cites the challenging trends coming out of 2019 and a lack of visibility going forward after the company pulled its 2020 guidance for the downgrade. Biegelsen tells investors that he believes what came to light in 2019 was Merit's prioritization of top line growth along with multiple acquisition integrations at the expense of earnings growth.
