PharmAthene (PIP) Catches Eye: Stock Rises 6.4% - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

PharmAthene, Inc. ( PIP ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 6% 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 for the company, as the stock is now trading above the past one month's volatile price range of $1.38 to $1.45.

This biodefense company has seen no estimate revision in the last 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in trend either. Friday's rally is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

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

Some better-ranked stocks in the Medical Drugs industry are Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ( SPPI ), Ariad Pharmaceuticals Inc. ( ARIA ) and BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ( BCRX ). While SPPI sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), ARIA and BCRX bear a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
