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’ higher Cologuard volumes boosted its legacy Screening business. Gross margin expansion and an overall strong solvency are also encouraging. Continued strong demand for tests needed for cancer treatment mitigated the overall revenue impact. Delivery of critical care and accelerated launch of its telehealth site to lessen direct interactions with health care providers during the pandemic are noteworthy. Its performance in the first quarter of 2020 was robust with better-than-expected revenues, thanks to the Genomic Health acquisition. Yet, fewer patient visits and surgery deferrals due to COVID-19 are concerning. Sole reliance on Cologuard and competitive headwinds are other major downsides. Rising expenses and operating loss also do not bode well. Overall, Exact Sciences has underperformed its industry over the past six months." (7/13/2020)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We are buyers of EXAS following the unusual 10% weakness in shares today, which we believe were part of the overall selloff today in diagnostics (and software stocks), where much of the alpha in the overall stock market has come from; and what we believe is likely certain funds pressuring EXAS following a cost effectiveness study published last week, but got a lot more attention today on the Street. We believe this is a buy-on- weakness opportunity on shares of EXAS given a handful of deep flaws used in the study." (9/10/2019)
