Stifel downgraded Tandem Diabetes Care (NASDAQ: TNDM) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $3.50 (from $15.00).

Analyst Rick Wise commented on the rating change, saying, "We are downgrading TNDM shares to Hold from Buy following a more disappointing than expected 3Q16 earnings performance and now sharply lower implied 4Q guidance. Multiple factors driving increased near-term uncertainty are making TNDM highly difficult to model. The most significant and most incremental headwind is the much larger than anticipated negative impact the MDT 630/670G product launch/approval is having on the market. Simply put, the prospect of these new competitive offerings – in particular the 670G (Spring 2017 launch) – are causing diabetic patients to hold off committing to any new pump system (and other diabetes technologies) until they are able to more fully assess these MDT offerings."
