Piper Jaffray raised its rating on Myriad Genetics (NASDAQ: MYGN) from Neutral to Overweight and increased its price target from $28 to $35.

Piper Jaffray commented, "Management expressed a high level of confidence in their reimbursement strategy, citing multiple layers of stability and a tight range around their median rates (specifically Medicaid and managed care).

Myriad Genetics closed at $26.95 on Friday.
