A A A

BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. ( BMRN ) was a big mover last session on Friday, as the company saw its shares rise by nearly 8% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company as the stock is now up nearly 17% since Nov 7.

The company has seen 11 negative estimate revisions and two positive revisions in the past one month, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if Friday's move higher can last.
