11:32 EDTILMN, SQNM, PKI, LHLabCorp prenatal test a negative for Sequenom, says Maxim
Maxim views LabCorp's (LH) announcement today that it will begin offering the informaSeq prenatal test as a long-term negative for Sequenom (SQNM) due to increased competition. The news is also negative for Illumina (ILMN) and PerkinElmer (PKI), who both offer Non-Invasive Prenatal Tests, Maxim adds. The firm recommends buying shares of LabCorp and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $130 price target.

10:24 EDTILMNIllumina pulls back following State of the Union address
Shares of Illumina (ILMN) rose yesterday after a biotech industry website reported that President Obama might unveil a major new genomics project during his State of the Union address last night. That speculation was backed as a possibility by an analyst at Wells Fargo ahead of last night's address. In the speech, President Obama unveiled what he called his Precision Medicine Initiative, which relies on genomics to "deliver(s) the right treatment at the right time." Obama spent far more time, however, discussing economic growth and foreign relations than healthcare. Illumina shares are down 3% to $190.64 in early trading today.

11:24 EDTILMNIllumina could see headline boost from U.S. genomics project, says Wells Fargo
After biotech industry publication BioCentury said Friday that the president may announce a new genomics project to sequence up to one million human genomes as part of his State of the Union speech tonight, Wells Fargo said that it believes such an announcement could be a headline catalyst for Illumina since it would mean the U.S. needs additional sequencing capacity. However, such a project would be long-term in nature, Wells Fargo cautioned, adding that such a plan would more likely support existing Illumina growth assumptions than push those forecasts up. Shares of Illumina are up 6% to $194.85 in morning trading ahead of tonight's speech by the president.
