10:20 EDTTHORCatalyst 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.

10:59 EDTTHORHeartWare drops after analyst cuts target to $60
Shares of HeartWare are moving lower after Northland analyst Suraj Kalia cut his price target for the name to $60 from $70. The company manufactures implantable heart pumps for patients suffering from advanced heart failure. Recent sheep data for the company's MVAD Pump with new impeller design show a "flowrate profile that seems to be on a downtrend over time," Kalia told investors this morning in a research note. The incomplete data raise more questions, the analyst contends. The MVAD Pump is a continuous axial flow pump, one-third the size of HeartWare's current heart pump, HVAD, according to the company. Kalia believes the MVAD will be more "problematic in patient management" than the HVAD over the long term. The analyst has an Underperform rating on HeartWare, Northland's sell rating equivalent. Shares of medical device company are down $2.22 to $71.22 in morning trading. Its peer Thoratec (THOR) is up 16c to $46.69.
