What are Wall Street analysts saying about Exact Sciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Exact Sciences stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Exact Sciences has outperformed its industry in the past year. Robust top-line growth during the first quarter of 2021, despite the pandemic-led headwinds, is impressive. The contraction in quarterly loss compared to the year-ago period buoys optimism. Revenues from the COVID-19 tests conducted during the quarter contributed to the top line. The company’s legacy Screening business saw an improvement in revenues on Cologuard volume growth. Expansion in gross margin bodes well. Notably, Exact Sciences exited the first quarter with better-than-expected numbers. On the flip side, continued dismal bottom-line performance in the first quarter is discouraging. Contraction in gross margin on escalating costs is worrisome as well. The company’s operating loss in the reported quarter does not bode well either." (7/13/2021)
