15:07 EDTKBHKB Home technical comments before results
In the past three months returns have been lower than the broader averages, falling by over 2.5%. The trend has been down to sideways in a range largely bounded by $18.50 at the high and $16.50 at the low. Those ranges may help us navigate post-earnings price reactions. A move lower on worse than expected news that breaks the range low at $16.50 might have bearish implications for price thereafter. In the past two years, the $16 level has held as support. Any news which could break that support could lead to further price weakness. Additional downside support would be at $15.16 , $14.32, and $13.19. If the news is positive and exceeds current expectations, we could see a run back to the top of the range at $18.50. On progressively stronger news or outlook, the following resistance levels could become additional upside objectives: $19.34, and $20.78 which is the 52-week high.

07:05 EDTSQNMSequenom presents new data supporting accuracy of MaterniT21 test
Sequenom announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Sequenom Laboratories, presented patient clinical data substantiating the performance of its MaterniT21 PLUS noninvasive prenatal test in the laboratory. An ad hoc analysis of 185,000 samples from patients at high-risk for fetal chromosome aneuploidy demonstrated stable positivity rates for trisomy 21, 18 and 13, which mirror the positivity rates found in large studies on high-risk populations utilizing invasive diagnostic procedures. Additionally, Sequenom Laboratories reported performance results from clinical testing with the MaterniT21 PLUS test with Enhanced Sequencing Series. In the ad hoc analysis based on voluntary outcomes provided by clinicians, the estimated sensitivity for trisomy 21, 18 and 13 were 99.3%, 98.3% and 97.4% respectively, and the estimated specificity was >99.9% for all three trisomies. These clinical laboratory performance data are equivalent to those published in the clinical validation studies of the MaterniT21 test. Based on these performance metrics, Sequenom Laboratories estimates that the MaterniT21 PLUS test positive predictive value for trisomy 21, 18 and 13 were 99.0%, 97.6% and 92.8% respectively, and the negative predictive value was >99.9% for all three trisomies.
