Cubist removed from Conviction Buy list at Goldman

Not everyone is excited about the prospects for Cubist's (CBST) acquisition of Optimer (OPTR) and Trius (TSRX). Goldman's Terence Flynn cuts the shares to Neutral from Conviction Buy citing concerns about commercial execution for Dificid and tedizolid. (previous)

    It's interesting to note that during the same hour that Goldman downgraded CBST from Conviction Buy to Neutral, Credit Suisse upgraded CBST from Neutral to Outperform because of a positive assessment of the acquisitions and the prospects for their drugs. No wonder we amateur investors are sometimes confused. For what it's worth, it seems that the market today (7/31 at 11:25 AM) tends to go with Credit Suisse's assessment. CBST is up around 12%. I'd be interested in hearing others' observations about this.
