Corcept Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CORT) was initiated with Outperform at Leerink Swann.
Monsanto (NYSE:MON), the agricultural business company, was initiated with a Neutral at Boenning & Scattergood. The firm believes that 8-traited SmartStax corn seeds are not going to be the strong driver of incremental profits that company had hoped.
