10:20 EDTSTJCatalyst behind Thoratec spike higher unclear
The catalyst behind the spike higher in shares of Thoratec (THOR) is unclear to traders and investors. The medical device maker focused on advanced heart failure patients rose as high $62.05 in early trading and its shares remain up 11%, or $5.48, to $54.29. Some vague takeover chatter surfaced, with St. Jude Medical (STJ) as the speculated buyer, but buyout rumors are often the "go-to" reason when stocks spike. Often the moves on rumors are less substantial than Thoratec's spike today. The company's close competitor HeartWare (HTWR) is not seeing any unusual trading thus far today, falling 36c to $78.81 in early trading.

20:33 EDTEADSYMedia reports say Lockheed to buy UTX's Sikorsky
According to media reports, Lockheed Martin (LMT) has agreed to purchase United Technologies' (UTX) Sikorsky unit. The news comes after several months of speculation surrounding Sikorsky, and an announcement could be made just a day prior to second quarter earnings for both United and Lockheed. WHAT'S NEW: Reuters reported on Sunday that Lockheed Martin has agreed to buy Sikorsky Aircraft from United Technologies for over $8B, according to two sources, adding that the deal is set to be formally announced on Monday. The news was later echoed by Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the talks. WHAT'S NOTABLE: United Technologies first reported that it was exploring strategic options for its Sikorsky unit on March 11. At the time, the company noted that options included a spinoff or a stand-alone public company, saying that the split could allow United "to better focus on providing high-technology systems and services to the aerospace and building industries." Following the announcement, UBS remarked that it was "not surprised" and reiterated a $136 price target on United shares. On May 20, the Wall Street Journal quoted sources as saying Boeing (BA), Airbus (EADSY) and Lockheed submitted bids for the helicopter maker, with a speculated deal thought to reach the $10B area. A June 9 report from Reuters added Textron (TXT) to the list of bidders. Today's news -- though unconfirmed by either United or Lockheed -- comes ahead of second quarter earnings reports for both companies scheduled for Tuesday, July 21. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Lockheed Martin declined 0.22% to $201.18 at the close of trading on July 17, while those of United Technologies fell 0.45% to $110.76.

08:34 EDTSTJSt. Jude Medical receives FDA approval for spinal cord stimulation trial system
St. Jude Medical (STJ) announced it received FDA approval of the Invisible Trial System. The system, which received CE Mark in June 2015, is fully wireless and leverages Apple (AAPL) technology for both the patient and physician controllers. The system is designed to provide patients a more improved and discreet spinal cord stimulation, or SCS, trial experience. "Patients undergoing SCS trials consistently tell us about challenges they find in navigating the SCS trial system, from programming the device, to discomfort from the programming cables, to management of both issues. These hindrances may impede the integration of the technology into their daily activities, which shifts their focus away from evaluating the effectiveness of SCS therapy,” said pain specialist Dr. Jason E. Pope, president of Summit Pain Alliance in Santa Rosa, California. “By providing a discreet trial system, St. Jude Medical will help patients focus more on their potential pain relief and functional improvements, and less about the burdens common to traditional trial systems.”

07:30 EDTGMGeneral Motors downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays
Barclays downgraded the U.S. Autos and Auto Parts sector to Negative from Neutral and cut its rating on General Motors (GM) to Equal Weight from Overweight. The firm sees further sector underperformance as China car sales continue to disappoint and Chinese production goes negative against a peak in the U.S. auto industry and a slow recovery in Europe. The firm sees few near-term catalysts for General Motors given is larger exposure to China and little that will change its perception by investors as a "value trap." Barclays lowered General Motors' price target to $36 from $44.
