Barrington Research upgraded OraSure Technologies (NASDAQ: OSUR) from Market Perform to Outperform with a price target of $12.50.

"OSUR achieved a major milestone this quarter when it obtained the recent FDA approval of its OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test. The company will be the first to market with the only rapid HIV test approved for sale into the U.S. consumer marketplace. We believe this is going to be a very significant product line over the long term. We really believe this should be a $50 million business in the U.S. and we are hopeful that we see that kind of run-rate in short order given the benefits to uninfected individuals," stated today's analyst report.
