Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (PPHM) Jumps: Stock Rises 6.2% - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ( PPHM ) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose over 6% 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 healthcare company, as the stock is now up roughly 16% since Nov 7.

In the last 30-day time frame, the company did not see any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in a trend either. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Peregrine currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

However, some better-ranked biotechnology stocks include Vanda Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ( VNDA ), Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. ( OSIR ) and InSite Vision Incorporated ( INSV ). All three stocks carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
