Boeing (GE) and its suppliers -- including General Electric (GE) -- have turned to using large Ukrainian "Antonov" cargo jets to overcome supply disruptions at U.S. West coast ports, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing statements by Boeing Commercial CEO Ray Conner, who said disruptions continued even after the ports reached a deal earlier in March.

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.

13:16 EDTMDTAnalysts upbeat on results of Edwards' Sapien 3 data
The shares of Edwards Lifesciences (EW) are rising after the company released data on its Sapien 3 transcathter aortic valve over the weekend. In notes to investors today, a number of analysts were upbeat on the data. BACKGROUND: Edwards yesterday announced that high- and intermediate-risk patients treated with Sapien 3 demonstrated lower mortality rates than patients treated with previous transcathter aortic valves, or TAVR, made by the company. The patients also had excellent clinical outcomes in the other primary endpoints of stroke and paravalvular regurgitation, the company stated. Meanwhile, a five year study of patients treated with the first generation SAPIEN device showed that the patients had equivalent outcomes to traditional open-heart surgery, and no structural valve deterioration requiring intervention, the company stated. ANALYST REACTION: Edwards' Sapien 3 data was impressive, as the device showed one of the lowest stroke and mortality rates of any major TAVR study so far, Bernstein analyst Derrick Sung wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Data presented by Edwards and other companies at the American College of Cardiology, or ACC, conference this weekend caused investors and the medical community to become more optimistic about the potential for TAVR devices to replace surgical valves, Sung stated. The analyst wrote that he continues to believe that investors are underestimating the potential size of the TAVR market. Also upbeat on Edwards' data was Wells Fargo, which wrote that the data exceeded high expectations and could pressure the FDA to approve Sapien 3 for intermediate risk patients earlier than Edwards' guidance of late 2016. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Analysts were also upbeat on data reported by other companies at the ACC conference. Medtronic's (MDT) data suggested that its CoreValve Evolut-R product may be as effective as Edwards' Sapien 3, Bernstein's Sung stated. The FDA appears to have allowed Boston Scientific's (BSX) left atrial appendage closure, Watchman, to be provided to more patients than expected, research firm Stifel believes. Meanwhile, St. Jude's (STJ) CardioMEMS device yielded "impressive" mortality data, the firm added. Stifel kept Buy ratings on both Medtronic and St. Jude. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Edwards Lifesciences climbed 9% to $147.64, Boston Scientific advanced 4% to $17.27, St. Jude added 2% to $67.55, and Medtronic rose 1.3% to $77.50.
