  • ISI Group Starts Coverage on Becton, Dickinson and Co. (BDX)

    ISI Group reported on Tuesday that it has begun coverage on medical technology company, Becton, Dickinson and Co. (BDX) . The firm has begun coverage on BDX with a "Buy" rating and $106.50 price target. This price target suggests an 8% increase from the stock's current price of $97.83. An analyst from the firm commented, “we view Becton, Dickinson and Co (BDX) as a premier provider of medical devices, diagnostic instruments, and reagents to hospitals as well as pharma, academic, and clinical labs. We contend that the company's attractively diversified portfolio (Medical ~50% of revs, Diagnostics ~35% of revs and Biosciences ~15% of revs), should allow for mid single digit top-line growth over the medium-term. This will be driven mainly by new product momentum, increased leverage to the emerging markets, and continued strength in safety engineered products. With respect to new product momentum, we see several offerings that have been underappreciated by the Street including: BD Max (MDx), BD Rx (prefilled generics), Kiestra microbiology automation (MDx), Carmel closed drug transfer systems, Accuri flocytometry, and Sirigen (reagents). When combined with advancements in pen needles, we expect innovation to contribute ~250 bps to organic growth going forward. Lastly, we believe that emerging markets (~25% of revs) will continue to grow low double digits (with China up strong double digits), while safety engineered products (prevention of needle sticks) should expand in the high single digit range.” Becton, Dickinson shares were mostly flat during Tuesday morning trading. The stock is up 25% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Becton, Dickinson and Co. (BDX) have a 2.02% yield, based on Tuesday morning's price of $97.83. Becton, Dickinson and Co. (BDX) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
