Exact Sciences price target raised to $65 from $60 at Benchmark

After Exact Sciences preannounced Q4 preliminary results, Benchmark analyst Raymond Myers said the results looked strong overall even though Cologuard's growth in the quarter in terms of number of tests was slightly slower than he had forecast. He calculated that revenue per test expanded $46 quarter-over-quarter to $497. Myers, who raised his price target on Exact Sciences shares to $65, keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Tax bill not a significant tailwind for Life Science Tool sector, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Doug Schenkel said 2017 was a good year for the Life Science Tool sector as the group outperformed the market. He believes 2018 will be tougher and said the tax bill will not be a significant tailwind for the group as many of the companies have already optimized reported tax rates and are paying an effective rate less than 20%. The analyst believes Hologic (HOLX) will benefit more than others and his top picks in the group are Exact Sciences (EXAS), Insulet (PODD), Hologic (HOLX), Thermo Fisher (TMO), and Illumina (ILMN).

Exact Sciences went out of network with Anthem Blue Cross, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Brian Weinstein notes Anthem Blue Cross, which represents Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin, published a Network eUpdate late last week that included an in-network laboratory update for Exact Sciences. The update, which does not affect the positive coverage decision from Anthem Blue Cross, is the result of a request from Exact Sciences to move from an in-network, contracted lab to an out-of-network provider with this payer, Weinstein tells investors in a research note. The switch became effective January 1, 2018. The analyst views the decision by the company with Anthem Blue Cross as a "specific situation" and believes it does not alter the uptake trajectory of Exact's Cologuard. Further, the switch should result in improving revenue per test at the company, Weinstein adds. He keeps an Outperform rating on Exact Sciences.

Canaccord names Illumina among top 2018 picks in Diagnostics and Tools industry
Canaccord analyst Mark Massaro rolled out his top 2018 picks in the Diagnostics and Tools segment after noting his 2017 picks returned 38% overall. He said he prefers larger companies in 2018 and said Illumina (ILMN) is a must own here due to its continued market dominance. The analyst raised his price target to $255 from $235 on Illumina shares. The analyst also recommends Exact Sciences (EXAS) as he expects its strong growth to continue. Massaro reiterated his $60 price target on Exact Sciences shares. He also likes Hologic (HOLX) and expects 2018 to be a bounce back year, raising his price target to $50 from $44. The analyst also likes Lab Corp. (LH) and believes it is likely to see an earnings acceleration and multiple expansion. He raised his price target to $190 from $175 on Lab Corp. shares. Finally, Massaro likes IDEXX (IDXX) for its new product launches and underlying global trends, keeping a $180 price target on the shares.
