Read MoreHide Full Article

Absci Corporation (ABSI - Free Report) shares rallied 10% in the last trading session to close at $5.16. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 18.4% gain over the past four weeks.

Last month, the company initiated IND-enabling studies for ABS-101, an anti-TL1A antibody developed using its de novo generative AI foundation model. This might have been driving the share price rally.

This company is expected to post quarterly loss of $0.23 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of -9.5%. Revenues are expected to be $2.18 million, up 39.7% from the year-ago quarter.

While earnings and revenue growth expectations are important in evaluating the potential strength in a stock, empirical research shows a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements.

For Absci Corporation, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has remained unchanged over the last 30 days. And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions. So, make sure to keep an eye on ABSI going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
