10:23 EDTMDT, STJ, BSXBoston Scientific rises after Citi sees Durata coming off market
Boston Scientific (BSX) is climbing after Citigroup analyst Matthew Dodds upgraded the stock to Buy from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. Durata cables made by St. Jude (STJ), a Boston Scientific competitor, will likely be taken off the market within six months, Dodds believes. Earlier this year a study found that Durata cables can fray when they rub against another object. Boston Scientific will benefit significantly from the withdrawal of St. Jude's cables, which are used to connect defibrillators to the heart, Dodds wrote. If Durata cables are removed from the market, Boston Scientific would obtain 41% of the $338M in revenue that St. Jude would lose, the analyst predicted. Medtronic (MDT) will garner 29% of St. Jude's lost sales, adds Dodds. The analyst increased his price target on Boston Scientific to $7.30 from $5.30. In mid-morning trading, Boston Scientific climbed 19c, or 3.40%, to $5.78, while St. Jude fell 35c, or 1.09%, to $31.68.
