Wells Fargo upgraded Thoratec (NASDAQ: THOR) from Market Perform to Outperform and raised its valuation range from $34-35 to $41-42 despite the FDA approving rival Heartware's (Nasdaq: HTWR) HVAD pump.

The firm cited: (1) we are above 2013 consensus revenue already and think THOR will continue to beat consensus in the near term; (2) the uptake of the HVAD in the U.S. may be dampened somewhat by the new stroke data from the ENDURANCE trial; and (3) the long-term risk to HTWR gaining DT approval has increased, in our view."
