  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Time to forget everything you thought you knew about BIO -- as two separate updates y'day included several "firsts" that add conviction to our bullish thesis: 1) 2020 rev & margin goals; 2) capital allocation plan opens the door for buybacks; 3) board shuffle / quality upgrade. Bottom line: the pathway to $300+ in 2-3 yrs just got a lot clearer & BIO's new shareholder-friendly behavior eliminates the rationale for a structural valuation discount, in our view." (3/14/2017)
