Active Analyst Alerts: Zimmer Holdings and 2 Stocks with New Analysis

Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZMH) comes in second to Stryker (NYSE:SYK) with analysts at Deutsche Bank, who believe that Biomet’s results are not always a good indication for the Medical Devices sector given the firm’s differing quarter ends and execution improvements.

MAKO Surgical Corp. (NASDAQ:MAKO) shares are rated Outperform at William Blair, who says that checks by the company’s RIO remain strong, and it’s expected that it will meet its second estimate of about 2,450 systems, even though some might see a good quarter from Biomet in knees, as a negative for Mako.

Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EQIX) ‘could convert to a real estate investment trust if it wanted to’, says an accounting expert in a call hosted by Cowen, who was hopeful of that eventuality. In addition, the consultant noted that Equinix met the required gross income and asset test requirements.
