Exact Sciences Won't Likely Escape Consolidation In The Industry

Exact Sciences: Sell-Off Provides An Opportunity To Buy At A Reasonable Valuation

Exact Sciences continues to record strong growth and is expected to report growth for the foreseeable future. Regardless of the steady revenue growth, the EXAS stock is under a lot of selling pressure as the overall market continues its downward trajectory. I believe the relentless selling will provide a great opportunity to grab EXAS at a reasonable valuation for its growth prospects. Guardant Health's colorectal cancer test might have an impact on Cologuard’s growth in the coming quarters. Therefore, I am not looking to make EXAS a major component of the Compounding Healthcare "Bio Boom" Portfolio at this time. I take a look at the company's current valuation to help form my plan of attack for EXAS as the market continues to experience elevated selling pressure.
