Jefferies analyst Brandon Couillard lifted his price target on Myriad Genetics (NASDAQ: MYGN) from $30 to $33 after the CMS lifted final BRCA reimbursement levels, but maintained a Hold rating.

Couillard comments, "In a surprise move, CMS revised the final NLA for BRCA testing to ~$2,200 (+52% from prior interim price) following a public comment period. We are raising our FY14 EPS forecast to $2.17 (from $2.12) to account for the new CMS reality in 4Q14. Our PT moves to $33 (from $30) on higher intermediate-term cash flow forecasts."
