In a report published Thursday, Morgan Stanley analyst David R. Lewis reiterated an Overweight rating and $45.00 price target on Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT).

In the report, Morgan Stanley noted, “The most challenging quarter of the year is behind the company and we see clarity to acceleration ahead. Consensus under-appreciates margin momentum into 2H14 and 15'. As EPS and revenue move higher into 2Q, shares will follow. Reiterate our OW thesis and $45 target.”
