Vanda Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (VNDA - Free Report) was a big mover last session with its shares rising just over 12% on the day. The upside was owing to the announcement that Mihael H. Polymeropoulos, M.D., Vanda's President and CEO, will deliver a corporate presentation at the Jefferies Global Healthcare Conference in New York City on June 4, 2015. This development led to far more shares changing hands yesterday than in a normal session. The move continues the recent uptrend of the company as the stock has gained over 20% in the past one-month time frame.
This biopharmaceutical company that develops products for the treatment of central nervous system disorders has seen no estimate revision in the last 7 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has also remained unchanged over the same period. Yesterday’s rally is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this stock in the near future.
