In a report published Friday, J.P. Morgan reiterated its Overweight rating on Covance (NYSE: CVD), and raised its price target from $68.00 to $70.00.

J.P. Morgan noted, “Given a diversified service offering, increasing geographical footprint, economies of scale, and growing biotechnology and pharmaceutical customer base, which have become increasingly reluctant to outsource work to smaller, less well-funded service organizations, we believe that CVD will continue to command a significant premium valuation to peers.”

Covance closed on Thursday at $67.54.
