A A A

Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ( SCMP ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell by over 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for SCMP, as the stock is now up 0.5% in the past one-month time frame.

This medical drugs company has seen a flat record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks (0 increases, 0 decreases). The consensus for earnings hasn't been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.
