Mizuho Securities maintained a Neutral rating on Myriad Genetics (NASDAQ: MYGN), and cut the price target to $22.00 (from $34.00), following the company's 4Q results and guidance. MYGN guided to 2017 revenues of $740mm-$760mm, versus consensus of $790mm, and EPS of $1.00-$1.10, versus consensus of $1.77.

Analyst Eric Criscuolo commented, "We lower our PT to $22 following the substantially weak FY17 guide and commentary around weakness in hereditary cancer testing. We stay Neutral though, as the issues surrounding the weak guide are substantial - competition, pricing, sales force turnover - but upside drivers could realistically emerge as the year progresses. With a lack of visibility we stay on the sidelines and prefer CPHD."
