14:16 EDTMYLBMO Capital sees strong fundamentals in Perrigo regardless of Mylan deal
Shares of Perrigo (PRGO) are trading higher intraday after BMO Capital Markets initiated coverage of the stock with an Outperform rating. The research firm is bullish on the shares regardless of whether Mylan's bid for the company succeeds, saying Perrigo is well-positioned to ride momentum in reduced-price healthcare. WHAT'S NEW: BMO Capital Markets' David Maris initiated coverage of Perrigo with an Outperform rating and a $246 price target. Maris cited the company's 70%-plus market share in store- and private-label brands, as well as its roughly $1B annual sales in the generics space. The analyst believes Perrigo will see continued benefit from larger trends driving consumer-centric healthcare and the curtailing of medical costs. WHAT'S NOTABLE: BMO Capital Markets noted that two upcoming Tysabri-related events are not accounted for by the Street, giving rise to a "significant" undervaluing of the shares. Mylan (MYL) has submitted multiple unsolicited offers for Perrigo, and while the likelihood of the deal seems low given Perrigo's numerous rejections and Teva's (TEVA) 4.61% blocking stake in Mylan. BMO Capital remarked that a failed deal should see "limited downside" for Perrigo. There could certainly be near-term volatility if a Mylan agreement doesn't materialize, but the analyst was confident in the well-positioned company's ability to deliver on both earnings per share and cash flow. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Perrigo are up nearly 2% in afternoon trading. The company saw a nearly 25% leap following Mylan's initial offer on April 8, though it has since dipped from that high.
