    10:21 (Dow Jones) Thoratec (THOR) shares on a roll this year, up nearly 60%. And
    the company could get another boost from new heart failure guidelines released by
    the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, says
    analyst Jason Mills of First Albany. New guidelines recommend use of a
    ventricular assist device (VAD) system (which THOR makes) as destination therapy
    (permanent support therapy) for patients with end-stage heart failure that hasn't
    responded to treatment. "We believe the new ACC/AHA guidelines...will resonate
    with referring cardiologists and lead to higher VAD utilization," Mills writes.
    He also sees THOR as a potential M&A target within 18 months. Shares up 0.5% at
    $16.53. (DMR)
