Read MoreHide Full Article

Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc. (VRCA - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 7% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for the company—as the stock is now down 27.9% in the past one-month time frame.

The move came after the company reported positive topline results from its phase III CAMP-1 and CAMP-2 pivotal trials with VP-102 for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum.

The company's Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has moved higher over the past few weeks, suggesting that more solid trading could be ahead for Tailored Brands. So, make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
