Yesterday OraSure Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSUR) reported Q4 EPS of ($0.11), $0.03 better than the analyst estimate of ($0.14). OraSure also announced guidance that was below consensus. In response, Jefferies today maintained a Buy rating on OraSure Technologies but trimmed its price target to $12.00 (from $13.00).

"While its 1Q13 revenue outlook lagged expectations (-9%), such a shortfall is not related to tempered expectations surrounding new product launches. We are trimming our price target to $12 (from $13) on lower base business expectations, but our 2013 revenue forecasts for the US HCV & OTC HIV products are unchanged," said analyst Jon Wood.
