Momenta Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:MNTA) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “Momenta’s third-quarter results were overshadowed by the disappointing results from a phase I study on the proposed biosimilar verison of Orencia. Momenta announced that M834 did not meet its primary pharmacokinetic end points in a phase I study to compare the pharmacokinetics, safety and immunogenicity of M834 to Orencia in normal healthy volunteers. Earlier, Momenta suffered a blow when the FDA approved Mylan’s generic version of Copaxone 40 mg. On the other hand, Momenta’s ANDA approval for Glatopa is contingent on the satisfactory resolution of the compliance observations stated in the warning letter issued by the FDA, resulting in a delay of approval. The warning letter will remain a major over hang on the shares till the issue is solved. Moreover, shares of the company have underperformed the industry in the last six months.”
DA Davidson began coverage on shares of Meridian Bank (NASDAQ:MRBK). The firm issued a buy rating and a $22.00 price target on the stock.
Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Pioneer remains focused on the Permian Basin, which is among the lucrative oil shale plays with less risk for operation. The region has been growing production even with reduced investment. Pioneer has strong earnings surprise history as reflected that the company managed to beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all the prior four quarters with an average positive surprise of 67.6%. Moreover, we appreciate the excellent financial health of the company. Pioneer Natural has debt to capitalization ratio of 21.2% which is much lower than 49.7% for the broader industry. However, we are concerned about the company’s expectation of higher exploration expenses during fourth-quarter 2017. Also, over the prior six months, the upstream energy player fell 5%, significantly underperforming the industry’s 6.6% gain. “
Red Hat (NYSE:RHT) had its overweight rating reissued by analysts at KeyCorp. They currently have a $135.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $125.00.
Synopsys (NASDAQ:SNPS) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a strong sell rating. According to Zacks, “Synopsys is a vendor of electronic design automation (EDA) software to the semiconductor and electronics industries. Though the company’s 4Q17 top and bottom lines both came ahead of the respective estimates and marked year-over-year improvement as well, its escalating costs and expenses, which are thwarting margins, make us increasingly cautious about its near-term profitability. Moreover, its non-GAAP earnings projection for FY18 was also disappointing as it fell short of the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Furthermore, competition from peers, a challenging technology-spending environment and uncertainty surrounding the exact time of realizing acquisition synergies keep us cautious. Nonetheless, we believe the company’s continued focus on rolling out products, acquisitions and deal wins will boost results over the long run. Shares of Synopsys have outperformed the industry in the YTD period.”
