Deutsche says presidential order potential long-term positive for national labs

Deutsche Bank analyst Dan Leonard said he believes the presidential executive order mandating greater healthcare price transparency could be potentially neutral in the short-term and "slightly positive" in the long-term for the national labs, LabCorp (LH) and Quest Diagnostics (DGX). He keeps a Buy rating on LabCorp and Hold rating on Quest shares.

Myriad Genetics trading 'well below slower growing' peers, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk says Myriad Genetics (MYGN) management remains optimistic over incremental private payer coverage for GeneSight, but points out they are now guiding to finalized decisions by calendar year end, which is about three-to-six months later than his previous expectations. Quirk suspects the negotiations are taking longer than expected due to the study dynamics. The analyst, while appreciating investors' frustration over Myriad shares, believes the stock is trading "well below slower growing" LabCorp (LH) and Quest Diagnostics (DGX). A couple reimbursement wins will be enough to create a rally, Quirk tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Overweight rating on Myriad Genetics with a $45 price target.

LabCorp price target raised to $174 from $150 at Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Ann Hynes raised her price target for Neutral-rated LabCorp (LH) to $174 from $150 and for Buy-rated Quest Diagnostics (DGX) to $110 from $106. Despite the recent outperformance in the group, both stocks will continue to re-rate higher as investors anticipate the long-term upside potential from UnitedHealth (UNH) lab initiatives, Hynes tells investors in a research note. The analyst thinks UnitedHealth's initiatives to form a preferred lab network and focus on out-of-network lab spend will bring greater pricing transparency to the clinical lab industry. She sees both LabCorp and Quest benefiting over time.

Piper says LabCorp may be taking incremental volume from regional payers
After LabCorp (LH) reported a mixed Q1, with better than expected earnings and lower than expected revenue, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk said he found it interesting that management noted volumes from UnitedHealth (UNH) and CVS Health's (CVS) Aetna is stable after the initial decline in January. He thinks this implies that LabCorp and Quest (DGX) are likely taking some incremental volume from regional payers, adding that this is sooner than he anticipated following the new managed care deals. However, management "remains coy" about the future impact from other volume consolidating programs, such as UnitedHealth's Preferred Lab Network, according to Quirk. He keeps an Overweight rating on LabCorp shares.

Quest Diagnostics price target raised to $102 from $93 at Citi
Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe raised his price target for Quest Diagnostics to $102 from $93 saying the company's Q1 results are encouraging as volumes are beginning to ramp. His new price target reflects the upside in the quarter and greater comfort in Quest hitting its guidance. Giacobbe keeps a Neutral rating on the shares.
