Myriad Genetics

The molecular diagnostic company reported last month second-quarter earnings of $28.3 million, or 33 cents a share. Earnings increased 17% from the previous year.

Myriad Genetics' estimated P/E for next year is 16.7. The average forward P/E among biotechnology companies is 44.38. United Therapeutics (UTHR) had a forward P/E of 7.81.

Of Myriad Genetics' Prolaris presentation at the ASCO-GU conference Thursday, Oppenheimer analysts wrote in a report Thursday, "MYGN is ramping up its sales force, doubling the size to 20, as mgmt believes prostate cancer to represent a large opportunity with an annual incidence of 241k pre-prostatectomy patients and a prevalence of 1M post-prostatectomy patients. Initial launch is planned in the pre-prostatectomy indication, with payor talks ongoing."

Eleven of the 20 analysts who cover the company rated it a buy. Nine considered it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings gives Myriad a B- grade with a $27.69 price target. The stock closed Thursday at $23.66 and has increased 15% year to date.
