Mid-Afternoon Market Update: Crude Oil Down 2.5%; Sequenom Shares Spike Higher

Credit Suisse initiated coverage on Sequenom (NASDAQ: SQNM) with an Underperform rating and a $4 price target.

Credit Suisse noted, "While we are excited about the scientific advance and volume potential that noninvasive prenatal genetic tests, including Sequenom's MaterniT21 PLUS, offer, we are concerned that the aggressive competitive dynamics we are already seeing (most notably with pricing) will limit the commercial potential of the test and cause the stock to underperform the rest of our coverage universe over the next 12 months."

Sequenom closed at $3.70 on Monday.
