Veracyte strength attributed to revised BCBS of Tenn. policy draft

The move higher in shares of Veracyte is being attributed to a draft of a revised policy from BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee. The draft, which states "Do Not Implement" at the top, shows changes that read, "Testing of molecular markers in fine-needle aspirates of the thyroid is considered medically necessary if appropriateness criteria are met." Veracyte makes Afirma Thyroid. Reference Link

Veracyte upgraded at Janney Capital
As noted earlier, Janney Capital upgraded Veracyte to Buy from Neutral. Analyst Paul Knight says that the company's "disciplined test development, commercialization, and reimbursement processes" insulate it from a number of problems plaguing the pharma sector. He thinks that recent regulatory changes have "dramatically reduced" the company's pricing risk. Target to $16 from $8.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pfizer (PFE) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Geoff Meacham saying he sees a greater likelihood that Pfizer will be able to access its cash overseas under the new administration, which could be used to acquire growth assets and return capital to shareholders. 2. Comerica (CMA) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette. 3. Tractor Supply (TSCO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Northcoast with analyst Chuck Cerankosky saying he expects the company to benefit from colder weather and the improving US economy and said product assortments and promotions have also been adjusted to the new economics of the energy patch and its impact on this company's customers. 4. Del Frisco's (DFRG) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Jason West saying it is a key beneficiary of improved high-end consumer and corporate spending. 5. Veracyte upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Janney Capital with analyst Paul Knight saying the company's "disciplined test development, commercialization, and reimbursement processes" insulate it from a number of problems plaguing the pharma sector.

Veracyte pact with Quest should improve Afirma reimbursement, says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Bryan Brokmeier believes Veracyte's (VCYT) agreement with Quest Diagnostics (DGX) for its Afirma Gene Expression Classifier expands access which, in addition to accelerating growth, should improve reimbursement rate and margins. Other diagnostic partners have said that Quest has become more of a driver of sales of proprietary tests, particularly for higher value tests, which leaves Brokmeier encouraged that the partnership will pay off for Veracyte, he tells investors. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating and $13 price target on Veracyte shares following the news.
