    • Mettler-Toledo International (MTD +2.6%) gains after Morgan Stanley initiated the shares on valuation with an Overweight rating and a $271 price target.
    • Morgan says the stock has lagged as growth disappointed on China and global macro weakness, but with growth set to improve in 2014, it sees current levels as a good entry point.
    • The company has strong pricing power and a dominant, scale advantaged franchise that is superior to most peers. This, coupled with an appealing capital deployment strategy, should enable the company to achieve steady share gains.

    Goldman upgrades the Life Sciences Tools & Diagnostics sector to Attractive, but some individual names suffered as Mettler Toledo (MTD -2%) and Sigma-Aldrich (SIAL -1.1%) catch downgrades to Neutral from Buy. SIAL has "few levers to drive EBIT [as] long-term organic growth guidance of 4-6% is too high." Quest Diagnostics (DGX +3.5%) and LabCorp (LH +2%) are upgraded to Buy and Neutral respectively on the former's "untapped capital allocation potential and margin expansion" and the latter's ability to manage pricing pressure.
