Myriad Genetics says study validates polygenic risk score for breast cancer

Myriad Genetics announced that results of a new validation study of the company's polygenic risk score for breast cancer were presented at the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. "The key finding is that the PRS significantly improves the precision and accuracy of breast cancer risk estimates for women of European ancestry who have pathogenic variants in high- and moderate-penetrance breast cancer genes," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to help women understand their risk of breast cancer so that they can take steps to live longer, healthier lives. Women who have a family history of breast cancer should consider hereditary cancer testing with the myRisk Hereditary Cancer test," said Jerry Lanchbury, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of Myriad Genetics. "In this landmark study, we demonstrated that for women who test positive for a mutation in one of the five most common breast cancer genes, there are additional genetic factors called single nucleotide polymorphisms that can further influence their lifetime risk of breast cancer."

Bruker, PerkinElmer, Personalis upgraded to Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Derik de Bruin upgraded Bruker (BRKR), PerkinElmer (PKI), and Personalis (PSNL) to Buy from Neutral as part of his broader research note into Life Sciences & Diagnostic Tools. The analyst notes that the recent market volatility has sent many of the names in the sector "sharply lower", making their valuations more attractive. de Bruin is also positive on Bruker's new product portfolio and margin expansion opportunity. As part of the research note, the analyst cuts Myriad Genetics (MYGN) to Underperform from Neutral and lowers his price target on the shares to $28 from $30 after a bounce in its stock price and given his concern with its mixed execution.

Myriad Genetics price target lowered to $22 from $40 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk lowered his price target for Myriad Genetics to $22 from $40 after the company reported a Q1 revenue decline of 7.9% to $186.3M, or well below its guidance of $200M-202M. Even adjusting for an updated accrual revenue would have been below guidance, Quirk tells investors in a research note. He maintains a Neutral rating on Myriad Genetics.

Underweight
Myriad Genetics price target lowered to $18 from $22 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Jack Meehan lowered his price target for Myriad Genetics to $18 from $22 saying the company's Q3 results were "very weak," as new pricing pressure in the core hereditary cancer testing franchise brings coding risks "back to the forefront of the thesis." The analyst expects further pricing risks will represent an overhang for the stock. He keeps an Underweight rating on Myriad Genetics.

Market Perform
Myriad Genetics price target lowered to $28 from $37 at SVB Leerink
SVB Leerink analyst Puneet Souda lowered his price target for Myriad Genetics to $28 from $37 and maintained a Market Perform rating, given that its core hereditary cancer franchise continues to see competitive and pricing pressures while its broader testing franchise including GeneSight is unable to shore up the decline. Myriad negatively surprised in yet another quarter, Souda tells investors in a research note, adding that he believes the stock will likely trade down as expectations are reset after what seems to be a string of quarters with negative surprises including impact from Lab Benefit Managers, FDA inquiry, GeneSight ADHD discontinuation and coding changes in its core hereditary business.
