Auxilium Pharmaceuticals (AUXL) in Focus: Stock Tumbles 7.8% - Tale of the Tape

Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc. ( AUXL ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell nearly 8% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for AUXL, as the stock is now down about 1% in the past one-month time frame.

The specialty biopharmaceutical company has seen a mixed track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks with no movement in either side, and the consensus for earnings has moved lower over the last 30 days. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.

AUXL currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.

Some better-ranked stocks in the same sector include Aeolus Pharmaceuticals Inc. ( AOLS ), Aerie Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ( AERI ) and Ariad Pharmaceuticals Inc. ( ARIA ). All these stocks hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
