12:20 EDTMDT, COVMedtronic remains committed to Covidien deal, says Wells Fargo
Following recent conversations with the company, Wells Fargo believes Medtronic (MDT) remains committed to the acquisition Covidien (COV), even if the deal can't be structured as an inversion. The firm notes that at its conference in June, Medtronic CFO Gary Ellis stated that "from Medtronic's perspective, we would do the deal whether it's an inversion or not inversion." Wells adds, however, that Medtronic would likely try to renegotiate the terms of the deal if an inversion is not possible.

05:39 EDTMDTSt. Jude Medical downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo downgraded St. Jude Medical (STJ) to Market Perform saying competitive pressures will drive 2015 market share losses in the company's cardiac rhythm management business, which represents 50% of total sales. Wells believes the launch of CardioMEMS will not be strong enough to offset the headwinds in CRM unit. The firm thinks Boston Scientific's (BSX) earlier than expected approval for its next generation subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator called Emblem will drive share gains against St. Jude and Medtronic (MDT) in the single chamber ICD market. Wells cut its price target range for St. Jude shares to $69-$70 from $73-$74. The medical technology company closed yesterday down $2.01 to $65.45.
