OraSure Technologies (OSUR) Catches Eye: Stock Jumps 10.1%

OraSure Technologies, Inc.OSUR was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares jump a little above 10% on the day. The move came after the announcement of a latest agreement with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support the reasonably priced sales of its OraQuick HIV Self-Test in 50 developing countries. Also, 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 14% in the past one-month time frame.

The company has seen no positive or negative estimate revision in the past 30 days. Also, its Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged over the same timeframe. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

OraSure Technologies currently holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
