INSYS Therapeutics (INSY) is in Overbought Territory: What's Next?

INSYS Therapeutics, Inc.INSY has moved higher as of late, but there could definitely be trouble on the horizon for this company. That is because INSY is now in overbought territory with an RSI value of 71.37.

What is RSI?

RSI stands for 'Relative Strength Index' and it is a popular indicator used by technically focused investors. It compares the average of gains in days that closed up to the average of losses in days that closed down; readings above 70 suggest an asset is overbought, while an RSI below 30 suggests undervalued conditions are present.

Other Factors

Yet INSY's high RSI value isn't the only reason for investors to be concerned, as there has been some decidedly negative earnings estimate revisions in INSYS Therapeutics' stock as of late.

Over the past two months, investors have witnessed 2 earnings estimates revision lower compared to none higher for the current year. The consensus estimate for INSY has also been on a downward trend over the same time period too, as the estimate has fallen from $0.13/share two months ago to just $0.04/share today.
