  • 2. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "Subsequent to the company's Q4 conference call (last week), we are reducing our estimates to reflect management commentary and 2017 guidance. While we believe the risk/reward is likely attractive at current levels, we are also reducing our price target to reflect our new revenue forecast and the heavy-H2 weighting of 2017 expectations...NTRA reported Q4 results last week and provided 2017 revenue guidance. In advance of the company's conference call (link to note), we had reduced our revenue estimates for Q4 and for 2017, by $1.5MM and $13MM, respectively, to reflect our estimated impact of the termination of the company's distribution agreement with BioReference Labs. Our reductions put us at the low end of the range of sell side estimates. Unfortunately, our estimates were not low enough for either period. Shares have traded off ~15% since the announcement and are off nearly 30% YTD." (3/14/2017)
