Tale of the Tape

Relypsa, Inc. (RLYP - Snapshot Report) saw a big move in the last trading session, as the company’s shares fell by over 19% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading below the volatile price range of $36.37 to $46.05 in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the company, a pharmaceutical firm specializing in non-absorbed polymeric drugs to treat disorders in the areas of renal, cardiovascular, and metabolic diseases, has seen 3 negative revisions in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has also moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

RLYP currently holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Investors interested in the Medical- Generic Drugs industry may consider better-ranked stocks like Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd. (RDY - Analyst Report), Mallinckrodt plc (MNK - Snapshot Report) and Actavis plc (ACT - Analyst Report). While Dr. Reddy’s and Mallinckrodt hold a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Actavis carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
