  • Raymond James has downgraded Invitae Corp (NYSE: NVTA) to Market Perform from Outperform following news of a full reset, including leadership changes and business line exits.

  • The guidance puts 2023 revenues some 37% below the pre-news consensus.

  • Related: Invitae Outlines Cost Saving Plan, Leadership Transition.

  • "We struggle to see what makes the equity performance materially better in the near- or intermediate-term, even acknowledging extension of the cash runway at least well into 2024," Raymond James writes.

  • "We don't think any of the actions announced earlier this week were necessarily the wrong things to do, but our move to a neutral rating reflects the reality of a stock that will be noisy," the analysts added.

  • NVTA currently trades at 2.8x updated 2023 sales estimate. The analysts do not view this as particularly accommodative compared with growth diagnostic peers largely in the low- to mid-single digit range.

  • Price Action: NVTA shares are up 0.85% at $2.36 during the market session on the last check Thursday.
