Galectin Therapeutics (GALT) Looks Good: Stock Jumps 16.7%

Galectin Therapeutics, Inc.GALT was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 17% on the day. The move came after the company received positive FDA feedback that it would be able to continue operations through the rest of the year. 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 over 64% in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen one positive estimate revision in the past 30 days. Also, its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved higher over the same timeframe. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.

Galectin Therapeutics currently holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
