06:03 EDTAGNMarket overreacted to new Irish tax rules, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital believes the market may have overreacted yesterday to the report that Ireland is eliminating the "Double Irish" tax loophole. The firm says Allergan (AGN) confirmed that it incorporated potential changes to Irish tax law in its recently raised earnings guidance while Mallinckrodt (MNK) said it does expect the new tax structure to have an immediate impact. BMO views yesterday's pullback in shares of Allergan, Mallinckrodt and Actavis (ACT) as an overreaction.

Leerink believes Allergan's takeover value is now at or above $210 per share given the company's recent execution. After speaking with management, the firm says Allergan's upside in Q3 was driving by fundamentals, not cost cuts. It continues to view the "most likely and straightforward outcome" for Allergan as being an outright sale of the company. Leerink raised its price target for shares to $215 from $184 and keeps an Outperform rating on Allergan.
