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 Corporation uses applied genomics to develop effective, patient-friendly screening technologies for use in the detection of cancer. Certain of its technologies have been licensed to Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings for a stool-based DNA screening assay for colorectal cancer in the average-risk population. Colorectal cancer, which is the most deadly cancer among non-smokers, is generally curable if detected early. Despite the availability of colorectal cancer screening and diagnostic tests for more than twenty years, the rate of early detection of colorectal cancer remains low, and deaths from colorectal cancer remain high. EXACT Sciences believes its genomics-based technologies would help to enable detection of colorectal cancer so that more people can be effectively treated. " (10/30/2018)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "5 th , data on Exact Sciences’ second case control study for its liver biomarker is scheduled to be presented at the Digestive Disease Week (DDW) conference. Recall that the biomarkers are being co-developed with the Mayo Clinic. The abstract is available on DDW’s website and preliminary details show encouraging 95% sensitivity across all stages (93% specificity in healthy controls, 86% specificity in cirrhotic controls). A liver screening test is one of a number of platforms in EXAS’ cancer pipeline and given the improving traction here, may be the second real shot on the goal, though years away. While we don’t view this as a material stock-moving event, pipeline advancement is supportive of our positive thesis on the name. We reiterate our Buy rating and $70 PT." (6/5/2018)
