Exact Sciences shares 'incrementally attractive' after pullback, says Jefferies
After hosting investor meetings with management, Jefferies analyst Brandon Couillard is "more confident" in Exact Sciences' long-term potential. Management remains confident in Cologuard's adoption ramp and is clearly focused on owning the colorectal cancer screening market, Couillard tells investors in a research note. Looking beyond the Q1 "soft patch," the stock looks "incrementally attractive" on the recent pullback, the analyst says. He expects the company's volumes to reaccelerate in Q2 and into 2019. Couillard reiterates a Buy rating on Exact Sciences with a $60 price target.

William Blair says investors not aware of 'major' Exact Sciences win
Exact Sciences recently had a "major" win as it signed a contract with "heavyweight" Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, William Blair analyst Brian Weinstein tells investors in a research note titled "In Case You Missed It: Exact Sciences Goes In-Network With Major Payer; Recent Stock Move a Bit Perplexing." BCBS-IL has over 8M covered lives and is among the biggest payers in the country, the analyst points out. He does not believe investors are aware of this development. Merkel points out shares of Exact Sciences are down over 10% this month and has lost nearly 25% of its value this year. He remains confident in the outlook for the business and reiterates an Outperform rating on the name.

Exact Sciences upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG
BTIG analyst Sean Lavin upgraded Exact Sciences to Buy with a $60 price target. Since November, the stock has fallen 35%, which provides an "attractive entry point," Lavin tells investors in a research note. He expects the shares to rally from here as Cologuard adoption grows "towards standard of care." The analyst says he's always felt Cologuard should replace most colonoscopies over time and should increase the number of people screening.
