Aurinia Pharmaceuticals (AUPH) Jumps: Stock Rises 5.6%

Aurinia Pharmaceuticals Inc.AUPH was a big mover last session, as its shares rose almost 6% on the day.

This led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company as the stock is now up 56.3% in the past one-month time frame.

Over the last 30 days, the company witnessed three positive estimate revisions. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also moved higher, suggesting more solid trading ahead. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if yesterday's jump can turn into more strength down the road.
