By
A A A

Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. ( GALT ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 13% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $5.90 to $9.80 in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen one negative revision in the past 30 days and 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 yesterday's move higher can last.

Galectin Therapeutics currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Some better-ranked stocks in the generic drugs industry include Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc ( JAZZ ), Lannett Company, Inc. ( LCI ) and Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ( SCMP ). All these carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
