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, "Despite weakness in Hereditary Cancer testing revenues, Myriad Genetics exited the third quarter of fiscal 2018 on a promising note. The company observed strong growth in GeneSight, Vectra DA and Prolaris testing revenues. Also, Hereditary Cancer volumes expansion was impressive. Furthermore, we are upbeat about the company seeing growth in new product volumes and success of its Elevate 2020 program. Moreover, the company's latest receipt of manufacturing and marketing approval for its BRACAnalysis Diagnostic System in Japan, buoys optimism. Further, the raised FY18 guidance instills confidence in investors. Accordingly, over the past three months, the company has outperformed its industry. However, the decline in Hereditary cancer testing revenues due to price reductions in long-term contracts, raises a concern. Additionally, currency fluctuations and stiff competition are major headwinds." (5/18/2018)
  • 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."
