Omnicell (NASDAQ:OMCL) was upgraded by analysts at Zacks from a neutral rating to an outperform rating. They currently have $32.00 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Omnicell reported better-than-expected second quarter results beating the consensus on both lines. A balanced segmental improvement was seen on the back of strong demand to upgrade to their G4 platform. However, we are concerned with the escalating product costs. We expect this to continue even in the coming quarter as an unfavorable product mix will lead to a drag in gross margin. Yet, the three-pronged strategy is contributing well to the company’s growth performance. While top-line synergy from the MTS acquisition was a major catalyst, we are also waiting for the successful completion of the impending acquisition of SurgiChem. Besides, several contract wins in the domestic and offshore markets are likely to boost organic growth as well. Accordingly, we upgrade the stock to Outperform. “

Semafo (TSE:SMF) was upgraded by analysts at Raymond James from a market perform rating to an outperform rating. Raymond James currently has C$6.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of C$5.00.
