These "buys" flooded in following stellar Q4 earnings results. EXAS delivered a solid Q4 revenue beat and raised its 2019 revenue guidance to $710 million-$730 million, above its prior $700 million estimate. As it prepares to release its Q1 numbers April 30, those numbers still look achievable.Plus the future looks bright for sales for its Cologuard DNA test for colon cancer."EXAS is one of our top picks for 2019, and we reiterate our "buy" rating and our $100 PT," said five-star Canaccord Genuity analyst Mark Massaro. "Exact continues to execute at a high level and isn't afraid to make big investments to hit its ambitious goal of achieving $6 billion of revenue for Cologuard over time."That would give the company over 40% market share for its revolutionary screening product, first launched back in 2014.According to Massaro, even the new revenue guidance is beatable, writing "we see a path to upside to our raised estimates." A similar message comes from Baird's Catherine Ramsey. She writes: "We continue to see the potential for upside… and EXAS remains one of our top ideas."The average analyst price target right now stands at $104.

Using these acquisitions, OTEX can cement its position as a leader in the EIM space."Our strategy is total growth," said CEO Mark Barrenechea said, "where M&A will continue to be our largest growth driver, augmented with organic growth." So far this strategy appears to be paying off. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm That level of optimism still is on Open Text's side as it prepares its May 1 report report on third-quarter earnings."We believe OpenText is likely to continue to create shareholder value through its acquisition strategy," RBC analyst Paul Treiber said following the encouraging Q2 numbers,Overall, five analysts have published recent bullish calls on the stock.

This is for mRNA-1653, an mRNA-based vaccine for the treatment of human metapneumovirus (HMPV) and parainfluenza virus (PIV3)."The interim phase I data announced today support our outlook for this experimental product and support advancing studies in the pediatric population" said Oppenheimer's Leah R Cann.The mRNA-1653 program is one of Moderna's 21 most current and importantly, one of its 13 focus programs.She points out that currently there are no approved vaccines to prevent hMPV or PIV3 infections, and estimates that worldwide mRNA-1653 sales could reach $1.44 billion by 2030.
