Trades from $3

Ariad Pharmaceuticals Inc. (ARIA) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares jump nearly 20% on the day. This surge can be attributable to solid volume with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company, as the stock is now up almost 91% in the past one-month time frame.

In the last 30 days, this company did not witness any estimate revisions and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has remained unchanged. However, the recent price action is encouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Ariad Pharmaceuticals currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
