What are Wall Street analysts saying about Myriad Genetics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Myriad Genetics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past three months, Myriad Genetics has outperformed its industry. The company observed strong growth in GeneSight, Vectra DA, EndoPredict and Prolaris testing revenues, in the last reported quarter. Further, management believes that Hereditary cancer pricing has remained stable on a sequential basis for three consecutive quarters. We are upbeat about Myriad Genetics’ expectation to witness a stable pricing trend throughout fiscal 2019. Moreover, the company seems to be positioned to deliver strong fiscal 2019 results on solid performance by new products, the recent Counsyl buyout, success of the Elevate 2020 program along with higher reimbursements for tests. However, the decline in Hereditary cancer testing revenues due to pricing issues raises concern. Currency fluctuations and stiff competition are other major headwinds." (10/29/2018)
  • 2. Stephens analysts commented, "We initiate coverage of Nightstar Therapeutics (NITE) with a Buy rating (PT$40), on the market opportunity likely addressed by NSR- REP1 in choroideremia (CHM). Choroideremia is a rare, inherited degenerative disease of the retina that typically has onsets in childhood or early adolescence. Patients then progress to reach legal or complete blindness in their 40s or 50s. There are currently no FDA-approved disease-modifying therapies for CHM. Nightstar’s lead asset, AAV-based gene therapy, NSR-REP1, is due to enter the 140-patient pivotal phase III STAR trial in 1H18 for the treatment of CHM. With the Lancet-published phase I/II data for NSR-REP1 in CHM, and subsequent updates from the multi-center program, Nightstar has been able to show that all NSR-REP1- treated patients who received the therapeutic dose were able to maintain vision to 5 years after treatment."
