J.P. Morgan Raises PT On BSX To $8
J.P. Morgan, citing 1Q results released last Wednesday evening its raising the price target on Boston Scientific Corp. (NYSE: BSX) from $7 to $8.
In the report, J.P. Morgan writes, “Boston Scientific reported 1Q results Wednesday night, with sales of $1.925B (down 1.8% reported, -0.7% organic) coming in $30M ahead of the Street due in large part to currency. The big story in the quarter, though, was down the income statement, where adjusted EPS of $0.22 (+33%) came in notably above management's own cash EPS guidance of $0.07-$0.10 on several one-time benefits and expense deferrals. Following these results, we are adjusting our BSX estimates for the full year 2011 and beyond.”
J.P. Morgan maintains its Underweight rating on the stock.
