Quest Diagnostics downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Patrick Donnelly downgraded Quest Diagnostics (DGX) to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $90 from $110. The analyst also downgraded his coverage view of Labs from Attractive to Neutral and removed LabCorp (LH) from his firm's Americans Conviction List. Donnelly's "incrementally more cautious stance" reflects his expectation for continued downward pressure to consensus estimates from ongoing pricing pressure, a "muted" volume outlook, and uncertainty regarding ongoing commercial payer dynamics. He sees an "uneven path to long-term organic volume growth" for Quest.

The analyst also downgraded his coverage view of Labs from Attractive to Neutral. His "incrementally more cautious stance" reflects his expectation for continued downward pressure to consensus estimates from ongoing pricing pressure, a "muted" volume outlook, and uncertainty regarding ongoing commercial payer dynamics. However, he believes LabCorp is "uniquely positioned to offset Lab industry headwinds."

Piper sees 'incremental winners' in final Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule
CareDx (CDNA), Genomic Health (GHDX), LabCorp (LH), Myriad Genetics (MYGN), Natera (NTRA) and Quest Diagnostics (DGX) are the "incremental winners" in the 2019 Final Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule determinations announced by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk tells investors in a research note. Specifically, CMS priced the advanced carrier screening panel at $2,449 versus the code stack method yesterday, Quirk writes. He points out that Genomic Health gets a bump for a couple tests and CareDx competitor TAI Diagnostics ends up with a likely longer pathway to reimbursement.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. LabCorp (LH) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jasper Hellweg saying the company is faced with pressure from "lower lab testing payment rates mandated by the Protecting Access to Medicaid Act of 2014" along with business disruptions and the impact of acquisitions which resulted in lowers margins for the quarter. 2. E-Trade (ETFC) downgraded to Outperform from Strong Buy at Raymond James with analyst Patrick O'Shaughnessy saying the recent board decision not to sell the business and remain a standalone company takes a sales scenario off the table. The analyst remains positive on shares ans believes there is plenty of upside as management executes on its operating plan. 3.

Flex (FLEX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jim Kelleher citing the expected impact from the "shutdown of Mexican operations with key customer Nike (NKE), which he expects to be fully unwound," as well as the retirement of the company CEO Mike McNamara who had presided over the company's business expansion. 5.
