Brigham, Broad Institute team to test 10,000 people in at-home coronavirus study called TestBoston

Over the course of six months, study participants will get monthly at-home kits for viral and antibody testing. They’ll also complete routine surveys and can seek additional testing if they develop symptoms, officials said.

Ongoing study results could reveal warning signs about how COVID-19 cases are changing in the Boston area. It will also help clinicians learn more about whether contracting the virus protects someone from future reinfection, according to the statement.

TestBoston will be led by Dr. Ann Woolley and Dr. Lisa Cosimi, infectious disease physicians at Brigham and Women’s, and Dr. Deborah Hung, a codirector of the Infectious Disease and Microbiome Program of the Broad Institute and an infectious disease and critical care physician at the Brigham.

Attractive entry point called out on Home Depot by Wells Fargo (NYSE:HD)

Wells Fargo reports back on virtual investor meetings held with Home Depot (NYSE:HD) CFO Richard McPhail and other execs.

The firm says the talks reinforced its view that recent tailwinds appear sustainable, 1H margin headwinds can improve, and outsized share gains can continue via enhanced Pro offerings, category initiatives and expanding supply chain capabilities.

“With sustainability questions and tough FY21 compares entering the narrative, we continue to view the home improvement category among the highest quality in retail, and with HD shares – 10% off recent highs (-7% SPX), we see an attractive entry point. In our view, recent share gains can accelerate (vs. fragmented, underinvested competition), macro/housing remains robust (turnover, rates, etc.), and de-urbanization and wallet share shifts remain incremental.”

For investors, the math still works out for snapping up shares, per the WF analyst team.

“At 22x, we see an entry point. HD’s NTM P/E shed 2.5x turns
